Radiator Service & Repair for 1987 Nissan 300ZX

Is It Time for Service on My 1987 Nissan 300ZX Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Nissan 300ZX 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1987 Nissan 300ZX is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. Nissan 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. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown 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.

Common Nissan 300ZX Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 1987 Nissan 300ZX 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 the coolant light on my Nissan dashboard mean? Your engine might be about to overheat. If your low coolant light is on, pull over in a safe area and wait for your engine temperature to go down. Once it’s safe to do so, bring your car to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to have the coolant system inspected.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? 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 Nissan 300ZX radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Nissan 300ZX radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
