2018 Nissan Maxima Radiator Repair & Service

When Does My 2018 Nissan Maxima Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Nissan Maxima radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2018 Nissan Maxima 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 it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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. 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 Maxima

What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Nissan Maxima cooling system.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Of all the parts in your 2018 Nissan Maxima engine, the water pump is one that you can't put off repairing or replacing. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature.

From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 2018 Nissan Maxima at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About Nissan Maxima Radiators

Wondering how to make your 2018 Nissan Maxima 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.

  • 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? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • Can Nissan Maxima radiators 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.
