2016 Kia Sorento Recommended Service Schedule

When do 2016 Kia Sorento radiators need service or repair?

Is It Time for Service on My 2016 Kia Sorento Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Kia Sorento radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it's still extremely important. 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.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2016 Kia Sorento is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Kia recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

What to Expect from Kia Sorento Radiator Repair

What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Kia Sorento 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. Of all the parts in your 2016 Kia Sorento engine, the water pump is one that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to ensure everything is operating as it should. When it comes to radiator service and repair, your 2016 Kia Sorento is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We stand behind our work with our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Common Kia Sorento Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 2016 Kia Sorento 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.
  • 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.
  • Do Kia Sorento radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Kia Sorento radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
