When to Service Your 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara Cooling System

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Suzuki Grand Vitara radiator serviced. Nonetheless, you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, Suzuki recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
