1993 Volvo 960 Radiator Repair & Service

Is It Time for Service on My 1993 Volvo 960 Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Volvo 960 radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1993 Volvo 960 is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. Volvo recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain 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 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.

This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat.

From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 1993 Volvo 960 at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Questions About Volvo 960 Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 1993 Volvo 960 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 the coolant light on my Volvo dashboard mean? 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.
  • 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.
  • Do Volvo 960 radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Volvo 960 radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
