Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Subaru WRX 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.
Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2017 Subaru WRX is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Subaru recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
What happens during a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Subaru WRX cooling system. Then, we’ll move on to a machine-powered coolant exchange. Finally, we’ll refill the flushed sealants, lubricants and chemicals, then do a pressure check to catch any possible leaks.
Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Of all the parts in your 2017 Subaru WRX engine, the water pump is one that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to ensure everything is operating as it should. From the radiator cap to the heater core, we’ll take excellent care of your 2017 Subaru WRX at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.
