1983 Peugeot 504 Radiator Service

When Does My 1983 Peugeot 504 Radiator Need Service?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Peugeot 504 radiator serviced. Nonetheless, you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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 1983 Peugeot 504 is essential for long-term engine health. Peugeot recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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.

What to Expect from Peugeot 504 Radiator Repair

What’s included in a radiator repair service? When you come to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we’ll begin your radiator repair with an in-depth inspection of the cooling system in your Peugeot 504. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Some services for your 1983 Peugeot 504 engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help make sure everything is in working order. From the radiator cap to the heater core, we’re here to give your 1983 Peugeot 504 the top-notch service it needs.

Peugeot 504 Radiator Q&A

Wondering how to make your 1983 Peugeot 504 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 Peugeot 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? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • Do Peugeot 504 radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Peugeot 504 radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
