Radiator Service & Repair for 2018 Kia Niro

2018 Kia Niro Recommended Service Schedule

How often should your 2018 Kia Niro radiator be serviced?

When to Service Your 2018 Kia Niro Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Kia Niro radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2018 Kia Niro is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. Kia recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain 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 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.

Radiator Repair Service for Your Kia Niro

What happens during a radiator repair service? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Kia Niro’s cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. The water pump is one part on your 2018 Kia Niro engine 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. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to ensure everything is operating as it should. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 2018 Kia Niro at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Every job we do is backed by our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Common Kia Niro Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 2018 Kia Niro 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? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? It's better to get it fixed sooner than later. Antifreeze is toxic if consumed, but its smell can attract cats and dogs. Keep your whole family safe by repairing antifreeze leaks ASAP and thoroughly hosing down your parking spot to get rid of any lingering residue on the ground.
  • When should my Kia Niro radiator be cleaned? Cleaning your car shouldn’t be limited to the parts you can see. Regular cleaning is good for your radiator, too! When you take your Kia Niro in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
