When Does My 2008 Lexus GS460 Radiator Need Service?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Lexus GS460 radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. So, what happens when the radiator isn’t working quite like it should? You guessed it – your engine overheats, and it may even break down completely.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2008 Lexus GS460 is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, Lexus recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Of all the parts in your 2008 Lexus GS460 engine, the water pump is one that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat.

When it comes to radiator service and repair, your 2008 Lexus GS460 is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.
