If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Saturn SL1 radiator serviced. Nonetheless, you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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.
Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1995 Saturn SL1 is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Saturn recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
