When Does My 1995 Subaru Legacy Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Subaru Legacy radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1995 Subaru Legacy is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. Subaru recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. 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. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Subaru Legacy Coolant Fluid Exchange

What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Subaru Legacy 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.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Of all the parts in your 1995 Subaru Legacy engine, the water pump is one that you can't put off repairing or replacing. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. When it comes to radiator service and repair, we’re here to give your 1995 Subaru Legacy the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Questions About Subaru Legacy Radiators

Wondering how to make your 1995 Subaru Legacy 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 Subaru dashboard on? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • Do Subaru Legacy radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Subaru Legacy radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
