If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Mercedes-Benz 300CE 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.
Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300CE is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Mercedes-Benz recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown 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 happens during a radiator repair service? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Mercedes-Benz 300CE’s cooling system.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Of all the parts in your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300CE engine, the water pump is one that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. 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 ensure everything is operating as it should. From the heater core to the radiator cap, your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300CE is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
