If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Pontiac 6000 radiator serviced. Nonetheless, you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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.
Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1985 Pontiac 6000 is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, Pontiac recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced 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.
What does radiator repair include? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Pontiac 6000 cooling system. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks.
Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Of all the parts in your 1985 Pontiac 6000 engine, the water pump is one that you can't put off repairing or replacing. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. From the radiator cap to the heater core, we’re here to give your 1985 Pontiac 6000 the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.
