When Does My 2015 Subaru WRX STI Radiator Need Service?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Subaru WRX STI radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2015 Subaru WRX STI is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Subaru recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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.

The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses.

Common Subaru WRX STI Radiator Questions

Take care of your 2015 Subaru WRX STI radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Subaru radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • What does the coolant light on my Subaru dashboard mean? 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? 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!
  • Can Subaru WRX STI radiators be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Subaru WRX STI radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
