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. 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.
Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1998 Suzuki Sidekick is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Suzuki recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
What happens during a radiator repair service? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Suzuki Sidekick’s 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.
If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Some services for your 1998 Suzuki Sidekick engine can wait, but the water pump is one part 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. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help make sure everything is in working order. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that we’re here to give your 1998 Suzuki Sidekick the top-notch service it needs. Every job we do is backed by our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.
