It can be tough to know when to have your Porsche 944 radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.
Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1985 Porsche 944 is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Porsche recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced 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.
What happens during a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Porsche 944 cooling system. Then, we’ll move on to a machine-powered coolant exchange. Finally, we’ll refill the flushed sealants, lubricants and chemicals, then do a pressure check to catch any possible 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 1985 Porsche 944 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. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to ensure everything is operating as it should. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 1985 Porsche 944 at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We stand behind our work with our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.
