Radiator Repair and Services

Radiator Repair and Services

When your car's engine is running there are a few components that create friction and that same friction generates a surprising amount of heat. In today's busy world 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 overall, and provide a recommendation for any needed services or repairs that may be required in order to keep it running at peak performance. 

Since the cooling system of your car is what keeps it from having a meltdown, it's important that all the different components be attended to and routinely inspected so that any possible issues can be addressed in a timely manner.  This will help to avoid costly repairs and annoying inconveniences.

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 standard cooling system is made up of the following components:

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

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

  • Your fluid level and condition
  • Signs of corrosion and oxidation
  • All the different components (including the thermostat and fans) to ensure they are working properly
  • Belts and hoses for signs of fractures or leaks


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

It is not uncommon after a certain period of time, for the cooling system of your car to develop scale deposits that limit the coolant flow. Evidence of these deposits is a certain sign that you're in need of a coolant system service.

If your desire is that your car's cooling system works properly, you are advised to keep the following in mind:

  • If you don't maintain your car's cooling system, this might result in serious damages or even a complete failure of your engine.
  • Your coolant system and antifreeze have to be serviced every 2 years, or every 30,000 to 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.


If you want your vehicle to stay effectively cooled down and to work for as many years as possible, you should be sure to have our certified technicians perform regular vehicle inspections.  We encourage you to schedule your next radiator inspection and coolant system service with our team today and allow our certified technicians to assist you in keeping your car running for years to come.
