Is It Time for Service on My 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Ram 1500 Classic 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. 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.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. Ram recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain 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 to Expect from Ram 1500 Classic Radiator Repair

What does radiator repair include? When you come to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we’ll begin your radiator repair with an in-depth inspection of the cooling system in your Ram 1500 Classic. 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. Some services for your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. 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 ensure everything is operating as it should. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Ram 1500 Classic Radiator Q&A

Take care of your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Ram radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • What does the coolant light on my Ram dashboard mean? 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.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • Do Ram 1500 Classic radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Ram 1500 Classic radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
