Radiator Service & Repair for 1989 Suzuki Sidekick

When Does My 1989 Suzuki Sidekick Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Suzuki Sidekick radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1989 Suzuki Sidekick is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Suzuki recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. Your radiator could be close to causing an 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.
