1985 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Radiator Service

When to Service Your 1985 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Cooling System

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Oldsmobile Delta 88 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1985 Oldsmobile Delta 88 is essential for long-term engine health. 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. Your radiator could be close to causing an 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
