2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Radiator Service

Recommended Maintenance Intervals for 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

How often should your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport radiator be serviced?

When to Service Your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Cooling System

It can be tough to know when to have your Hyundai Santa Fe Sport radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. Hyundai 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 notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Some services for your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature.

Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Radiator Q&A

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 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 Hyundai 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.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? 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 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Hyundai Santa Fe Sport radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
