If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Porsche 928 radiator serviced. Nonetheless, 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 1983 Porsche 928 is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Porsche recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown 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 happens during a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Porsche 928 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.
If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Some services for your 1983 Porsche 928 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 isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to help make sure everything is in working order. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 1983 Porsche 928 at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.
