If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Volkswagen Routan radiator serviced. Nonetheless, you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. So, what happens when the radiator isn’t working quite like it should? You guessed it – your engine overheats, and it may even break down completely.
Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2011 Volkswagen Routan is essential for long-term engine health. Volkswagen recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain 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 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? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Volkswagen Routan cooling system. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks.
Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. The water pump is one part on your 2011 Volkswagen Routan 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 isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. 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, your 2011 Volkswagen Routan is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.
With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2011 Volkswagen Routan radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.
