Radiator Service & Repair for 2013 Volkswagen Touareg

Is It Time for Service on My 2013 Volkswagen Touareg Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Volkswagen Touareg radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. 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.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2013 Volkswagen Touareg is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. 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 notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Questions About Volkswagen Touareg Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2013 Volkswagen Touareg 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? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • Can Volkswagen Touareg radiators be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Volkswagen Touareg radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
