It can be tough to know when to have your Saturn SL2 radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it's still extremely important. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.
Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1998 Saturn SL2 is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Saturn recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled 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 leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Some services for your 1998 Saturn SL2 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.

Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help make sure everything is in working order.
