2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R Radiator Repair & Service

When to Service Your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R 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 AMG GT R 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. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R 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. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
