Is It Time for Service on My 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Mazda MX-5 Miata radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata is essential for long-term engine health. 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. 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.

What to Expect from Mazda MX-5 Miata Radiator Repair

What does radiator repair include? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Mazda MX-5 Miata’s 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.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Of all the parts in your 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata engine, the water pump is one 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. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to ensure everything is operating as it should. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that we’ll take excellent care of your 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Every job we do is backed by our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Mazda MX-5 Miata Radiator Q&A

Take care of your 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Mazda radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Mazda? 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.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? It's better to get it fixed sooner than later. Antifreeze is toxic if consumed, but its smell can attract cats and dogs. Keep your whole family safe by repairing antifreeze leaks ASAP and thoroughly hosing down your parking spot to get rid of any lingering residue on the ground.
  • Can Mazda MX-5 Miata radiators 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 Mazda MX-5 Miata in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
