2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Radiator Service

Is It Time for Service on My 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Cooling System?

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

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. 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 might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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.

What’s included in a radiator repair service?

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Some services for your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you can't put off repairing or replacing. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Common Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 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? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • Do Mercedes-Benz AMG GT radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
