1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Radiator Repair & Service

Is It Time for Service on My 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 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 Supreme radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. 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.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, Oldsmobile recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific 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 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.

Questions About Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Radiators

Wondering how to make your 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme radiator last as long as possible? Read on for answers to common questions, and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care when your engine shows any signs of a faulty radiator.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Oldsmobile dashboard on? 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? 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.
  • When should my Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme radiator be cleaned? Cleaning your car shouldn’t be limited to the parts you can see. Regular cleaning is good for your radiator, too! When you take your Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
