1999 Oldsmobile Aurora Radiator Service

When Does My 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Oldsmobile Aurora 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, Oldsmobile recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. 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.
