Radiator & Hoses
|Do you have a Leaking Radiator?|
|Is your Engine Overheating?|
|Time for your Radiator to be Cleaned / Flushed?|
|Do you smell something burning or see steam from motor?|
|Time for you annual Cooling System Inspection?|
|Do you need your Radiator Pressure Tested?|
|Do you have a Leaking Radiator Overflow Bottle?|
|Is one of your cooling hoses leaking?|
Most common radiator problems are a result of your vehicle’s age. Common problems are leaks, low fluid flow due to plugging and crusty fittings. Since the radiator is made of several welded, soldered or glued parts, these joints are more likely to experience radiator problems over time.
Another contributing factor to radiator problem is the eventual deterioration of the solder that holds the hundreds of cooling fins to the core tubes. This causes them to become loose and create radiator problems. In fact, because these cooling fins are so thin and delicate, the environment can affect the fins more than any other radiator component and create the need for a radiator replacement.
WE ALSO REPLACE RAD HOSES AND CAPS
Your vehicle’s radiator hoses are responsible for transferring hot coolant from the engine to the radiator for cooling and then back to the engine again after the coolant temperature has been lowered.
Old and cracked radiator hoses are eventually going to leak. Generally when the radiator fails, it is a good idea to consider replacing both upper and lower rad hoses and rad cap when this repair is being done. Replacing the radiator hoses before they begin to leak can prevent an inconvenient breakdown and the potential for expensive related repairs. When cracks are visible or the hose swells or feels soft, it is a sure sign that the hoses are at the end of their life span.
