Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Volkswagen Jetta radiator serviced, 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.
Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1985 Volkswagen Jetta is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Volkswagen recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
What does radiator repair include? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Volkswagen Jetta 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.
Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. The water pump is one part on your 1985 Volkswagen Jetta engine that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to help make sure everything is in working order. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 1985 Volkswagen Jetta at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
