Is It Time for Service on My 2008 Pontiac G5 Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Pontiac G5 radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2008 Pontiac G5 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 it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. Your radiator could be close to causing an 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.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Pontiac? Your engine might be about to overheat.

Once it’s safe to do so, bring your car to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to have the coolant system inspected.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? It's better to get it fixed sooner than later. Antifreeze is toxic if consumed, but its smell can attract cats and dogs. Keep your whole family safe by repairing antifreeze leaks ASAP and thoroughly hosing down your parking spot to get rid of any lingering residue on the ground.
  • When should my Pontiac G5 radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Pontiac G5 radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
