Three Signs Your Radiator Needs Service/Repair

1. ENGINE OVERHEATING

Overheating can cause your engine to ping and lose power. It can also damage the rings, pistons and rod bearings. If this causes pistons to swell, your cylinders can also be damaged possibly leading to you needing to replace your engine.

2. LEAKING UNDER CAR

If you find coolant under your car, chances are you have a problem with your radiator cap, a leaky radiator, or a head gasket problem. You should also be concerned if you are constantly having to top off your coolant even if your car is not overheating.

FLUSH EVERY TWO YEARS

COOLANT LOSES PROTECTIVE PROPERTIES AFTER 24 MONTHS

Your car's coolant is vital to its efficient operation and longevity. Overtime the cooling, lubricating, and ant-corrosion capabilities of your antifreeze slowly degrade. Whether you know it or not, your car's protection is fading away everyday that you drive it. So, just like occasionally changing your oil, oil filter, and air filter, you must also replace your coolant.

Regularly flushing your radiator coolant at a minimum of every two years is an excellent way to improve your car's efficiency while extending the life of your radiator, water pump, and engine. Failure to renew the protective properties of your radiator's coolant can lead to costly radiator repairs, water pump replacement, and even engine failure.

PROTECT YOUR CAR BY FLUSHING YOUR RADIATOR

3. CORROSION IN RESERVOIR

Your antifreeze does much more than cool your car. It helps prevent wear and tear on bearings and other auto parts by providing lubricants and anti-corrosion capabilities. But, over time the anti-corrosion properties of your antifreeze become less effective. Parts that it is intended to protect start to corrode and you begin seeing corrosion in your radiator's reservoir.
