How often should your 2020 Kia Sorento radiator be serviced?

When to Service Your 2020 Kia Sorento Cooling System

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Kia Sorento 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 2020 Kia Sorento is essential for long-term engine health. Kia recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain 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 notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. 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 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 Sorento’s cooling system. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Some services for your 2020 Kia Sorento 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 technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help make sure everything is in working order. When it comes to radiator service and repair, we’re here to give your 2020 Kia Sorento the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Kia Sorento Radiator Q&A

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2020 Kia Sorento radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • What does the coolant light on my Kia dashboard mean? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? 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 Sorento radiator 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.
