1984 Pontiac Grand Prix Radiator Service

When to Service Your 1984 Pontiac Grand Prix Cooling System

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Pontiac Grand Prix radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1984 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range.
