Maintenance check at 150000 miles for your 2003 Pontiac Montana Base
Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Pontiac Montana radiator serviced, but it’s vital to know what to look for. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. 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.
Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2003 Pontiac Montana is essential for long-term engine health. Pontiac recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
What happens during a radiator repair service? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Pontiac Montana’s cooling system. Then, we’ll move on to a machine-powered coolant exchange. Finally, we’ll refill the flushed sealants, lubricants and chemicals, then do a pressure check to catch any possible leaks.
Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Of all the parts in your 2003 Pontiac Montana engine, the water pump is one that you can't put off repairing or replacing. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help make sure everything is in working order. From the radiator cap to the heater core, your 2003 Pontiac Montana is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.
