Is It Time for Service on My 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Jeep Wrangler JK radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. 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 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. 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 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.

Jeep Wrangler JK Radiator Q&A

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK 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 Jeep 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!
  • Do Jeep Wrangler JK radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Jeep Wrangler JK radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
