When to Service Your 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL600 Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Mercedes-Benz CL600 radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL600 is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. 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.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Of all the parts in your 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL600 engine, the water pump is one that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature.

Common Mercedes-Benz CL600 Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL600 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.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • When should my Mercedes-Benz CL600 radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Mercedes-Benz CL600 radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
