Radiator Service & Repair for 2003 Mercedes-Benz C240

Is It Time for Service on My 2003 Mercedes-Benz C240 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 C240 radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2003 Mercedes-Benz C240 is essential for long-term engine health. Mercedes-Benz recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. 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.

  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze.
