Radiator Service & Repair for 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL

When to Service Your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Cooling System

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL radiator serviced. Nonetheless, you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. 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 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL is essential for long-term engine health. 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. 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. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Common Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL 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.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Mercedes-Benz? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? 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.
  • Do Mercedes-Benz 560SEL radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
