Radiator Service & Repair for 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E

When Does My 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Mercedes-Benz 300E radiator serviced, 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. 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. Mercedes-Benz recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

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 300E’s cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Of all the parts in your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E engine, the water pump is one that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it.
