1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Radiator Service

When to Service Your 1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Cooling System

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Oldsmobile recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific 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 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.
