1987 Oldsmobile Calais Radiator Service

When to Service Your 1987 Oldsmobile Calais Cooling System

It can be tough to know when to have your Oldsmobile Calais 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. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1987 Oldsmobile Calais is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Oldsmobile recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
