Radiator Service & Repair for 1987 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

When Does My 1987 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Radiator Need Service?

It can be tough to know when to have your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1987 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. 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. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced 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. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
