It can be tough to know when to have your Kia Forte5 radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, 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. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.
Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2017 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 you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. 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. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
What’s included in a radiator repair service? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Kia Forte5’s 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 2017 Kia Forte5 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 isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help make sure everything is in working order. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that we’re here to give your 2017 Kia Forte5 the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.
