How often should your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee radiator be serviced?

When Does My 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Radiator Need Service?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Jeep Grand Cherokee radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. 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 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. To keep your radiator functioning, Jeep recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled 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 notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

What to Expect from Jeep Grand Cherokee Radiator Repair

What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Jeep Grand Cherokee cooling system. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. The water pump is one part on your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee engine that you can't put off repairing or replacing. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to help make sure everything is in working order. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 2017 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

Take care of your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Jeep radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • What does the coolant light on my Jeep dashboard mean? 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.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on 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.
