1987 Suzuki Samurai Radiator Repair & Service

When Does My 1987 Suzuki Samurai Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Suzuki Samurai radiator serviced, but it’s vital to know what to look for. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. So, what happens when the radiator isn’t working quite like it should? You guessed it – your engine overheats, and it may even break down completely.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1987 Suzuki Samurai is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. Suzuki recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. Your radiator could be close to causing an 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.
