Radiator Service & Repair for 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D

Is It Time for Service on My 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Mercedes-Benz 190D 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. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Mercedes-Benz 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 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.
