Is It Time for Service on My 2005 Pontiac G6 Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Pontiac G6 radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2005 Pontiac G6 is essential for long-term engine health. 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. 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.

From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’re here to give your 2005 Pontiac G6 the top-notch service it needs.

Common Pontiac G6 Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 2005 Pontiac G6 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.

  • What does the coolant light on my Pontiac dashboard mean? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? 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!
  • When should my Pontiac G6 radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Pontiac G6 radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
