2013 Nissan Pathfinder Radiator Repair & Service

Is It Time for Service on My 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Nissan Pathfinder radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. To keep your radiator functioning, Nissan recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled 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 see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Questions About Nissan Pathfinder Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder 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? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  • 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 Pathfinder radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Nissan Pathfinder radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
