Don’t let the heat of the moment – or of your engine – get to your head. Schedule a radiator repair or service for your 2014 Mazda CX-9 today.
If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Mazda CX-9 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.
Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2014 Mazda CX-9 is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Mazda recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Mazda CX-9 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.
If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Some services for your 2014 Mazda CX-9 engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you can't put off repairing or replacing. 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. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to help make sure everything is in working order. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 2014 Mazda CX-9 at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.
With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2014 Mazda CX-9 radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.
