If overheating happens again


  • Contact a professional workshop or seek other qualified assistance. Kia recommends to call an authorised Kia dealer/service partner.

  • Whilst the engine is running, keep hair, hands and clothing away from the fan and drive belts to prevent injury.

  • Do not remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. This may result in coolant being blown out of the opening and cause serious burns.

  • Serious loss of coolant indicates there is a leak in the cooling system and this should be checked as soon as possible by a professional workshop. Kia recommends to visit an authorised Kia dealer/service partner.

  • When the engine overheats from low engine coolant, suddenly adding engine coolant may cause cracks in the engine. Add engine coolant slowly in small quantities to prevent damage.
