Radiator Service & Repair for 1984 Pontiac Phoenix

Is It Time for Service on My 1984 Pontiac Phoenix Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Pontiac Phoenix radiator serviced. Nonetheless, 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.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1984 Pontiac Phoenix is essential for long-term engine health. Pontiac recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain 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 a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
