When Does My 2016 Kia Forte5 Radiator Need Service?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Kia Forte5 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2016 Kia Forte5 is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. To keep your radiator functioning, Kia 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. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced 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.

Common Kia Forte5 Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 2016 Kia Forte5 radiator last as long as possible? Read on for answers to common questions, and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care when your engine shows any signs of a faulty radiator.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Kia 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!
  • When should my Kia Forte5 radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Kia Forte5 radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
