When do 2009 Nissan GT-R radiators need service or repair?

Is It Time for Service on My 2009 Nissan GT-R Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Nissan GT-R radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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 2009 Nissan GT-R is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Nissan recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Radiator Repair Service for Your Nissan GT-R

What does radiator repair include? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Nissan GT-R’s cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Some services for your 2009 Nissan GT-R engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. 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 we’ll take excellent care of your 2009 Nissan GT-R at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We stand behind our work with our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Nissan GT-R Radiator Q&A

Wondering how to make your 2009 Nissan GT-R 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.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? 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!
  • Do Nissan GT-R radiators need to be cleaned? Cleaning your car shouldn’t be limited to the parts you can see. Regular cleaning is good for your radiator, too! When you take your Nissan GT-R in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
