My Sportage began to leak radiator fluid underneath the car, destroying the under engine cover. My first thought was a bad thermostat, so I took it off and tested it in a pot of water, finding that it was good. I began to put everything back together, breaking the thermostat cover guessing the break derived from extreme temperature due to it being plastic.
I ordered one from my local dealership, it took two weeks to get it. After getting it back together, I started my Kia, revved the engine, seeing the antifreeze bubbling extreme in the fill reservoir. I then noticed the radiator was leaking and saw that the bottom of the radiator was bowed, not straight. I did not remember if it was straight when I bought it new, so I researched it and found it should be straight.
