Radiator Service & Repair for 1988 Pontiac 6000

When to Service Your 1988 Pontiac 6000 Cooling System

It can be tough to know when to have your Pontiac 6000 radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it's still extremely important. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. So, what happens when the radiator isn’t working quite like it should? You guessed it – your engine overheats, and it may even break down completely.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1988 Pontiac 6000 is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Pontiac 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. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
