San Antonio Radiator and Cooling System Repair and Maintenance
Engines get hot. Burning fuel and moving parts building friction adds together to build a large quantity of heat in the engine bay. The cooling system keeps that heat in check, so proper maintenance of the cooling system keeps the engine happy. Our team of top-notch technicians specialize in various auto repair services, including radiator and cooling system repair and maintenance.
Your engine is made of metal, plastic, and rubber parts. A working cooling system keeps everything from melting down by moving coolant around so it can absorb and dissipate heat. Many components work together to reduce the temperature, and they include:
- Thermostat and housing
- Water pump
- Electric cooling fan
- Radiator and hoses
When you bring in your vehicle for any service, our technicians will check:
- Your fluid level
- Signs of corrosion and oxidation
- Fluids or deposits which might show indications of leaks or damages
When our technicians conduct a cooling system repair, they'll also check:
- If all parts, including the thermostat and fans, are working properly
- Belts and hoses for signs of fractures or leaks
The cooling system effects every part of your engine, so a lack of maintenance can result in serious damage or even a complete failure of your engine. A flush of the coolant is recommended every 2 years or every 30,000 to 50,000 miles.
