Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Porsche Boxster radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. 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 2013 Porsche Boxster 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 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 leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Porsche Boxster 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. The water pump is one part on your 2013 Porsche Boxster engine 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. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’re here to give your 2013 Porsche Boxster the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.
