Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Pontiac Grand Prix radiator serviced, but it’s vital to know what to look for. 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.
Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1983 Pontiac Grand Prix 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. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
