1995 Pontiac Trans Sport Radiator Service

When to Service Your 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Pontiac Trans Sport 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. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Pontiac recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific 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 leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

What to Expect from Pontiac Trans Sport Radiator Repair

What does radiator repair include? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Pontiac Trans Sport cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Of all the parts in your 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport engine, the water pump is one that you can't put off repairing or replacing. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help make sure everything is in working order. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’re here to give your 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Common Pontiac Trans Sport Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport radiator last as long as possible? Read on for answers to common questions, and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care when your engine shows any signs of a faulty radiator.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Pontiac dashboard on? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • When should my Pontiac Trans Sport radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Pontiac Trans Sport radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
