1989 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Radiator Service

Is It Time for Service on My 1989 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Oldsmobile Delta 88 radiator serviced, but it’s vital to know what to look for. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1989 Oldsmobile Delta 88 is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. To keep your radiator functioning, Oldsmobile recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Common Oldsmobile Delta 88 Radiator Questions

Take care of your 1989 Oldsmobile Delta 88 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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Do Oldsmobile Delta 88 radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Oldsmobile Delta 88 radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
