How often should your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee radiator be serviced?

When to Service Your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Jeep Grand Cherokee radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. 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 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Jeep recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific 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.

Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to ensure everything is operating as it should. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Radiator Q&A

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 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 an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Jeep? 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? 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!
  • Can Jeep Grand Cherokee radiators be cleaned? To keep your Jeep Grand Cherokee radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
