Radiator Repair and Services

Radiator Repair and Services

When you are driving your vehicle, there are certain parts in your engine that create friction and that same friction generates heat. It can be quite a challenge to keep up with the cooling system maintenance of your vehicle. However, our friendly, trustworthy and professional team of certified technicians can evaluate your radiator and engine coolant system, and provide a recommendation for any needed services or repairs.  

The cooling system of your car is what keeps it from having a meltdown. All of the components in your cooling system join forces to meet one important goal, which is moving coolant around your engine, so that it can absorb and dissipate heat. The main purpose of the cooling system is to reduce temperature in order to help all other parts of the engine work properly.

The standard cooling system is made up of the following components:

  • Thermostat and housing
  • Thermo-time switch
  • Water pump
  • Electric cooling fan
  • Radiator and hoses

When our technicians perform radiator services or repairs, they will inspect:

  • Your fluid level
  • Signs of corrosion and oxidation
  • If all parts, including the thermostat and fans are working properly
  • Belts and hoses for signs of fractures or leaks
  • Fluids or deposit which might show indications of leaks or damages

It's important to make sure that you have proper levels of antifreeze in your vehicle when you drive in extremely harsh weather, in order to prevent your liquid coolants (and other liquids in your engine) from freezing.

After a certain period of time, the cooling system of your car will develop scale deposits that will limit the coolant flow. This is a certain sign that you're in need of a coolant system service. If you want your vehicle to stay effectively cooled down and to work for as many years as possible, you should let our certified technicians perform regular vehicle inspections. If you wish your car's cooling system to work properly, you are advised to bear in mind the following:

If you don't maintain your car's cooling system, this might result in serious damages or even a complete failure of your engine.

During every oil change, your coolant levels should be inspected as well.

Your coolant system and antifreeze have to be serviced every 2 years, or every 30,000 to 50,000 miles

Schedule your next radiator inspection and coolant system service with our team, and allow our certified technicians to assist you in keeping your car running years to come.
