1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue Radiator Service

When to Service Your 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue Cooling System

It can be tough to know when to have your Oldsmobile Intrigue radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but 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. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Oldsmobile recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Common Oldsmobile Intrigue Radiator Questions

  • Why is the coolant light on my Oldsmobile dashboard on? Your engine might be about to overheat.
