Keeping your cool is easier when your engine is cool. Schedule your 2012 Kia Forte radiator repair or service today.
Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Kia Forte radiator serviced, but it’s vital to know what to look for. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. So, what happens when the radiator isn’t working quite like it should? You guessed it – your engine overheats, and it may even break down completely.
Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2012 Kia Forte is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Kia recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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 does radiator repair include? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Kia Forte cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.
If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Some services for your 2012 Kia Forte engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. 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 ensure everything is operating as it should. When it comes to radiator service and repair, your 2012 Kia Forte is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Every job we do is backed by our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.
