2018 Volkswagen Golf R Radiator Service

Is It Time for Service on My 2018 Volkswagen Golf R Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Volkswagen Golf R radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it's still extremely important. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Volkswagen 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 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 to Expect from Volkswagen Golf R Radiator Repair

What’s included in a radiator repair service? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Volkswagen Golf R’s cooling system.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. The water pump is one part on your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R engine that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help make sure everything is in working order. From the heater core to the radiator cap, your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze.
