When Does My 2013 Volkswagen Routan Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Volkswagen Routan radiator serviced, but it’s vital to know what to look for. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. 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 2013 Volkswagen Routan 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 also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown 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.

Volkswagen Routan Radiator Q&A

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2013 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.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Volkswagen? Your engine might be about to overheat. If your low coolant light is on, pull over in a safe area and wait for your engine temperature to go down. Once it’s safe to do so, bring your car to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to have the coolant system inspected.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • Can Volkswagen Routan radiators be cleaned? To keep your Volkswagen Routan radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
