Radiator Service & Repair for 2018 Honda HR-V

When Does My 2018 Honda HR-V Radiator Need Service?

It can be tough to know when to have your Honda HR-V radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it’s vital to know what to look for. 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2018 Honda HR-V is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Honda recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled 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 notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

What to Expect from Honda HR-V Radiator Repair

What’s included in 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. Then, we’ll move on to a machine-powered coolant exchange. Finally, we’ll refill the flushed sealants, lubricants and chemicals, then do a pressure check to catch any possible leaks.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Some services for your 2018 Honda HR-V engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you can't put off repairing or replacing. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to ensure everything is operating as it should. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 2018 Honda HR-V 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

Wondering how to make your 2018 Honda HR-V 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.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Honda dashboard on? 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? 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.
  • When should my Honda HR-V radiator 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.
