Radiator Service & Repair for 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport

When Does My 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Pontiac Trans Sport radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. 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 could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Of all the parts in your 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport engine, the water pump is one that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help make sure everything is in working order.

Pontiac Trans Sport Radiator Q&A

Wondering how to make your 1997 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.

  • What does the coolant light on my Pontiac dashboard mean? 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.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • Can Pontiac Trans Sport radiators 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.
