When to Service Your 1997 Lexus LS400 Cooling System

It can be tough to know when to have your Lexus LS400 radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it's still extremely important. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1997 Lexus LS400 is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Lexus recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled 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 a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Lexus LS400 Coolant Fluid Exchange

What happens during a radiator repair service? When you come to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we’ll begin your radiator repair with an in-depth inspection of the cooling system in your Lexus LS400. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Some services for your 1997 Lexus LS400 engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you can't put off repairing or replacing. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to ensure everything is operating as it should. When it comes to radiator service and repair, your 1997 Lexus LS400 is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Common Lexus LS400 Radiator Questions

Take care of your 1997 Lexus LS400 radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Lexus radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? It's better to get it fixed sooner than later. Antifreeze is toxic if consumed, but its smell can attract cats and dogs.

  • When should my Lexus LS400 radiator be cleaned? Cleaning your car shouldn’t be limited to the parts you can see. Regular cleaning is good for your radiator, too! When you take your Lexus LS400 in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
