Radiator Service & Repair for 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser

Is It Time for Service on My 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass 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 Cutlass 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. So, what happens when the radiator isn’t working quite like it should? You guessed it – your engine overheats, and it may even break down completely.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. Oldsmobile recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
