Radiator Service & Repair for 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL

When to Service Your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Mercedes-Benz 500SEL radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Mercedes-Benz recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
