When Does My 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Radiator Need Service?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Hyundai Santa Fe radiator serviced. Nonetheless, you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. 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 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe 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.

What to Expect from Hyundai Santa Fe 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 Hyundai Santa Fe’s cooling system. 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. Some services for your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you can't put off repairing or replacing. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that we’ll take excellent care of your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Common Hyundai Santa Fe Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe 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 Hyundai dashboard on? 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!
  • When should my Hyundai Santa Fe radiator 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 in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
