Keeping your cool is easier when your engine is cool. Schedule your 1996 Kia Sportage radiator repair or service today.
It can be tough to know when to have your Kia Sportage 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.
Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1996 Kia Sportage is essential for long-term engine health. Kia recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. 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. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Kia Sportage cooling system. Then, we’ll move on to a machine-powered coolant exchange. Finally, we’ll refill the flushed sealants, lubricants and chemicals, then do a pressure check to catch any possible leaks.
Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Some services for your 1996 Kia Sportage engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you can't put off repairing or replacing. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to ensure everything is operating as it should. From the radiator cap to the heater core, we’ll take excellent care of your 1996 Kia Sportage at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We stand behind our work with our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.
