When to Service Your 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Mazda MX-5 Miata radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. 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 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata 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 you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Common Mazda MX-5 Miata Radiator Questions

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Mazda dashboard on? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. 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.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • Do Mazda MX-5 Miata radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Mazda MX-5 Miata radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
