2013 Nissan Armada Radiator Service

When to Service Your 2013 Nissan Armada Cooling System

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

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2013 Nissan Armada is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Nissan 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 see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

What happens during a radiator repair service? When you come to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we’ll begin your radiator repair with an in-depth inspection of the cooling system in your Nissan Armada.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Some services for your 2013 Nissan Armada engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you can't put off repairing or replacing. 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. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to ensure everything is operating as it should. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that we’ll take excellent care of your 2013 Nissan Armada at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About Nissan Armada Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2013 Nissan Armada radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Nissan? 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 Armada radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Nissan Armada radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
