2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Radiator Repair & Service

When to Service Your 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Cooling System

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

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen 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 you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. 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. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Questions About Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Radiators

Take care of your 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Volkswagen radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • What does the coolant light on my Volkswagen dashboard mean? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? It's better to get it fixed sooner than later. Antifreeze is toxic if consumed, but its smell can attract cats and dogs. Keep your whole family safe by repairing antifreeze leaks ASAP and thoroughly hosing down your parking spot to get rid of any lingering residue on the ground.
  • Can Volkswagen Golf SportWagen radiators be cleaned? To keep your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
