The cooling system consists of a cooling fan, water pump, thermostat, radiator, heater core, heater valve, and various other parts that primarily work together to remove heat from your vehicle’s engine. Your cooling system reduces the temperature inside your engine and prevents possible overheating. When the engine reaches maximum operating temperatures, the thermostat opens and releases antifreeze from the engine to the radiator, which starts the circulatory flow to absorb excess heat. Antifreeze is also used for keeping your other engine fluids from boiling or freezing. When the anti-freeze is done flowing through the engine, it cycles back to the radiator, where the excess heat escapes through the radiator’s walls. The antifreeze is cooled by the cooling fan and readied to be re-released into the engine deplete additional heat.

Benefits of Cooling System Repair & Maintenance

Over time, antifreeze loses it’s efficiency. If you don’t drain & replace your old antifreeze it can lead to corrosion. During a cooling system flush and fill, our technicians will drain the your radiators antifreeze , flush the cooling system, and fill the radiator with new antifreeze. The cooling fan circulates air through the radiator and passes excess heat out of the engine. If the cooling fan malfunctions, your engine will overheat. During an inspection of the cooling system, our experts will check the cooling fan for damage and the fan belt cracks, wear and tear, if we find anything that needs repairing or replacing we will let you know, The radiator is responsible for cooling the antifreeze as it circulates throughout the cooling system, if you have a leak or a broken radiator hose this can lead to major engine failure. To avoid any major engine failure, we will run a radiator pressure test, this checks for potential leaks or radiator damage, if we find any damage we can suggest to you any repairs needed. In the end, if you neglect basic cooling system and radiator maintenance you put your vehicle at risk of potential radiator replacement and major engine or radiator repairs down the road.
