1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC Radiator Service

Is It Time for Service on My 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Mercedes-Benz 560SEC radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it’s vital to know what to look for. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC is essential for long-term engine health. Mercedes-Benz recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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.

Wondering how to make your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC radiator last as long as possible? Read on for answers to common questions, and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care when your engine shows any signs of a faulty radiator.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Mercedes-Benz dashboard on? Your engine might be about to overheat.

Once it’s safe to do so, bring your car to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to have the coolant system inspected.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? 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.
  • When should my Mercedes-Benz 560SEC radiator be cleaned? To keep your Mercedes-Benz 560SEC radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
