When Does My 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Radiator Need Service?

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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Hyundai recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Coolant Fluid Exchange

What happens during a radiator repair service? When you come to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we’ll begin your radiator repair with an in-depth inspection of the cooling system in your Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Of all the parts in your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport engine, the water pump is one that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. 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, we’re here to give your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport the top-notch service it needs. Every job we do is backed by our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Common Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Radiator Questions

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2017 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? 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!
  • Do Hyundai Santa Fe Sport radiators need to be cleaned? Cleaning your car shouldn’t be limited to the parts you can see. Regular cleaning is good for your radiator, too! When you take your Hyundai Santa Fe Sport in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
