Is It Time for Service on My 2003 Volvo S60 Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Volvo S60 radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, 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.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2003 Volvo S60 is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Volvo recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled 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 leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

What to Expect from Volvo S60 Radiator Repair

What does radiator repair include? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Volvo S60 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.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. The water pump is one part on your 2003 Volvo S60 engine that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help make sure everything is in working order. From the radiator cap to the heater core, your 2003 Volvo S60 is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Volvo S60 Radiator Q&A

Wondering how to make your 2003 Volvo S60 radiator last as long as possible? Read on for answers to common questions, and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care when your engine shows any signs of a faulty radiator.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Volvo? 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? 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 Volvo S60 radiators be cleaned? To keep your Volvo S60 radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
