Radiator Service

cooling_system

The main functions of the Engine Cooling System are to carry heat away from the engine and maintain the correct operating temperature. The system accomplishes this by circulating antifreeze/coolant around the components where heat is generated and carrying it to the radiator to be cooled.

In the engine cooling system, an appropriate amount of an antifreeze/coolant and water mixture is necessary to help reduce the risk of the engine overheating and freezing. Another important feature of antifreeze/coolant is that it inhibits rust and corrosion in the cooling system.

Our service includes:

  • Visually checking the radiator and radiator hoses for leaks
  • Evacuating the old antifreeze/coolant
  • Refilling the cooling system with the appropriate type and amount of antifreeze/coolant

RADIATOR CAP REPLACEMENT SERVICE

A Radiator Cap, also known as a “pressure cap”, controls pressure in the cooling system. The cap may be mounted on the radiator filler neck or on top of the coolant reservoir.

Our service includes:

  • Visually inspecting for antifreeze/coolant leaks and/or damage at the radiator/pressure cap to filler neck or reservoir seals
  • Visually inspecting the radiator/pressure cap for cracks, seal or thread damage, tab retention damage
  • Pressure testing the radiator/pressure cap to ensure it holds the proper pressure as designed
  • Replacing the radiator/pressure cap with a new cap that meets OEM specifications
