When to Service Your 1990 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. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. 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 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. Oldsmobile recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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.

Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Coolant Fluid Exchange

What does radiator repair include? When you come to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we’ll begin your radiator repair with an in-depth inspection of the cooling system in your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. The water pump is one part on your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser engine that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to ensure everything is operating as it should. From the radiator cap to the heater core, your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We stand behind our work with our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Questions About Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • What does the coolant light on my Oldsmobile dashboard mean? Your engine might be about to overheat. If your low coolant light is on, pull over in a safe area and wait for your engine temperature to go down. Once it’s safe to do so, bring your car to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to have the coolant system inspected.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? It's better to get it fixed sooner than later. Antifreeze is toxic if consumed, but its smell can attract cats and dogs. Keep your whole family safe by repairing antifreeze leaks ASAP and thoroughly hosing down your parking spot to get rid of any lingering residue on the ground.
  • Do Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
