2013 Subaru Outback Maintenance Schedule

How often should your 2013 Subaru Outback radiator be serviced?

When Does My 2013 Subaru Outback Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Subaru Outback radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2013 Subaru Outback is essential for long-term engine health. Subaru 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. 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

What to Expect from Subaru Outback Radiator Repair

What’s included in a radiator repair service? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Subaru Outback’s 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.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Some services for your 2013 Subaru Outback 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. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’re here to give your 2013 Subaru Outback the top-notch service it needs. Every job we do is backed by our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Subaru Outback Radiator Q&A

Wondering how to make your 2013 Subaru Outback 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? 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? It's better to get it fixed sooner than later. Antifreeze is toxic if consumed, but its smell can attract cats and dogs. Keep your whole family safe by repairing antifreeze leaks ASAP and thoroughly hosing down your parking spot to get rid of any lingering residue on the ground.
  • Can Subaru Outback radiators be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Subaru Outback radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
