2016 Honda HR-V Radiator Service

Is It Time for Service on My 2016 Honda HR-V Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Honda HR-V radiator serviced. Nonetheless, 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 2016 Honda HR-V is essential for long-term engine health. Honda 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. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

What to Expect from Honda HR-V Radiator Repair

What happens during a radiator repair service? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Honda HR-V’s cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Some services for your 2016 Honda HR-V engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you can't put off repairing or replacing. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to ensure everything is operating as it should. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that your 2016 Honda HR-V is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We stand behind our work with our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Honda HR-V Radiator Q&A

Take care of your 2016 Honda HR-V radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Honda radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • What does the coolant light on my Honda dashboard mean? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  •  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 Honda HR-V radiators be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Honda HR-V radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
