When Does My 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Hyundai Santa Fe radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2020 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. 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Radiator Repair Service for Your Hyundai Santa Fe

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 Hyundai Santa Fe’s cooling system.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too.

This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help make sure everything is in working order. From the radiator cap to the heater core, your 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Hyundai Santa Fe Radiator Q&A

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Hyundai dashboard on? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  •  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.
  • Do Hyundai Santa Fe radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Hyundai Santa Fe radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
