Maintenance check at 150000 miles for your 2006 Pontiac Montana SV6
It can be tough to know when to have your Pontiac Montana radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.
Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2006 Pontiac Montana is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Pontiac recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
What does radiator repair include? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Pontiac Montana’s cooling system. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks.
Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Some services for your 2006 Pontiac Montana engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to ensure everything is operating as it should.
