Is It Time for Service on My 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais is essential for long-term engine health. Oldsmobile recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. Your radiator could be close to causing an 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.

Common Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Radiator Questions

Take care of your 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Oldsmobile radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Oldsmobile? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • Can Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais radiators be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
