Recommended Maintenance Intervals for 2019 Subaru Forester

When do 2019 Subaru Forester radiators need service or repair?

Is It Time for Service on My 2019 Subaru Forester Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Subaru Forester radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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 2019 Subaru Forester is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Subaru recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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.

Some services for your 2019 Subaru Forester engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you can't put off repairing or replacing. 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.

Subaru Forester Radiator Q&A

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2019 Subaru Forester 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 Subaru dashboard mean? 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? 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 Subaru Forester radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Subaru Forester radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
