2011 Nissan Maxima Radiator Repair & Service

When to Service Your 2011 Nissan Maxima Cooling System

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Nissan Maxima radiator serviced. Nonetheless, you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2011 Nissan Maxima 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. 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.

Questions About Nissan Maxima Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2011 Nissan Maxima radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Nissan dashboard on? 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 Maxima radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Nissan Maxima radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
