2020 Porsche 718 Spyder Radiator Service

When Does My 2020 Porsche 718 Spyder Radiator Need Service?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Porsche 718 Spyder radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. 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 2020 Porsche 718 Spyder is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. Porsche 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. 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

What to Expect from Porsche 718 Spyder Radiator Repair

What does radiator repair include? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Porsche 718 Spyder cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too.

From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 2020 Porsche 718 Spyder at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Common Porsche 718 Spyder Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 2020 Porsche 718 Spyder 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 Porsche dashboard on? Your engine might be about to overheat. If your low coolant light is on, pull over in a safe area and wait for your engine temperature to go down. Once it’s safe to do so, bring your car to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to have the coolant system inspected.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? 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!
  • Do Porsche 718 Spyder radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Porsche 718 Spyder radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
