Is It Time for Service on My 2013 Ram 3500 Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Ram 3500 radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2013 Ram 3500 is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, Ram recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. 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. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Radiator Repair Service for Your Ram 3500

What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Ram 3500 cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Some services for your 2013 Ram 3500 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’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 help make sure everything is in working order. From the radiator cap to the heater core, we’re here to give your 2013 Ram 3500 the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Common Ram 3500 Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 2013 Ram 3500 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 Ram dashboard on? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? 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.
  • Can Ram 3500 radiators be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Ram 3500 radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
