1997 Oldsmobile Silhouette Radiator Repair & Service

Is It Time for Service on My 1997 Oldsmobile Silhouette Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Oldsmobile Silhouette radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, 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. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1997 Oldsmobile Silhouette is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Oldsmobile recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled 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 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.
