When Does My 2017 Mazda 3 Radiator Need Service?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Mazda 3 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. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2017 Mazda 3 is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Mazda 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. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

What to Expect from Mazda 3 Radiator Repair

What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Mazda 3 cooling system. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. The water pump is one part on your 2017 Mazda 3 engine that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to ensure everything is operating as it should. From the radiator cap to the heater core, we’ll take excellent care of your 2017 Mazda 3 at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Every job we do is backed by our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Questions About Mazda 3 Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2017 Mazda 3 radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • What does the coolant light on my Mazda dashboard mean? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • When should my Mazda 3 radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Mazda 3 radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
