Cooling System

 

Radiator & Cooling System Service

Your radiator protects your engine and air conditioning condenser from overheating. It also plays an important role with the computer controlled system. An engine temperature sensor actually tells the computer what the engine temperature is so the computer can adjust the air and fuel mixture and engine timing. The efficiency of the radiator directly effects the efficiency of your engine.

 

That's why flushing the cooling system and pH balancing the coolant is recommended at least once every two years.

 

Car Over heatingOur coolant system power flush removes contaminates. We pressure test the cooling system for leaks, clean the recovery bottle and pressure test the radiator cap. The system is then refilled with the proper mix of coolant and water for optimal protection.

 

We’re often asked questions about the cooling system – the system that cools your engine and keeps it at the proper operating temperature. Let’s examine the topic in two areas: first the coolant itself and, second, the parts that make up the cooling system.

 

The coolant in your car or light truck is the mix of water and antifreeze that circulates through the engine to draw off heat. First, you need to have the proper amount. If you don’t have enough coolant it can’t keep your engine cool.

You also need the right kind of coolant. Different makes of sedans and other vehicles require different coolant formulation to protect against corrosion.

 

Finally, your coolant needs to be fresh. Over time and miles, the anti-corrosion additives in the coolant are depleted and the coolant can actually start to eat away at the cooling system parts. Your owner’s manual and our service adviser can help you with the recommended coolant replacement schedule and make sure you’re getting the right type of coolant.

 

Now let’s talk about the cooling system components. These will all eventually wear out and need to be replaced.

 

Starting with the radiator, we see them coming into the shop with leaks or clogged with deposits. Depending on the damage, we will clean, repair or replace. We also see radiator pressure caps that can no longer hold the proper Car overheatpressure. We recommend replacing pressure caps when you change your coolant to avoid this problem.

 

We see leaky water pumps and hoses in our area that need to be replaced, too. There’s also a part called the thermostat that opens and closes to regulate the flow of coolant. Sometimes they stick open or closed and the cooling system won’t work properly.

 

Engine damage from overheating can be very expensive to fix so it’s important to maintain your cooling system properly with scheduled coolant replacement and periodic inspections of the cooling system. Certainly come in if you suspect a leak and have us take a look.

 


 

Summer Can Be Tough on Cars

 

The cooling system works harder during hot temperatures to prevent overheating of the engine. To keep the cooling system working effectively, the coolant and distilled water mixture for a vehicle’s radiator should be 50:50. As a reminder, never open a hot radiator cap when checking the coolant level in the reservoir.

As a rule of thumb, the coolant should be changed annually on most vehicles. This will keep the cooling system fresh and clean inside, which helps prevent corrosion and assures that the coolant has the proper boiling point and protection. A pressure test, thermostat test, a cooling fan test and a visual inspection for leaks and corrosion should also be done annually. Hoses and drive belts should be checked for cracks, bulges or frayed edges.

The radiator should be kept clean by periodically using a garden hose and a soft brush to carefully remove bugs, dirt and debris.

 


 

 

THE BASICS BEHIND COOLING SYSTEM FLUSH & FILL SERVICES NEAR BRUNSWICK OHIO

In your vehicle, fuel is converted into heat energy, which means the internal temperatures in your engine compartment can increase dramatically in a short period of time. If your engine overheats, it can cause major damage to various components and cost you a significant amount of time and money to fix. The efficiency of a cold engine is low in comparison to a warm engine, and cold engines are prone to pollution. Your vehicle’s cooling system helps maintain a constant internal temperature. Ethylene glycol is mixed with water to make antifreeze, which is used in cooling systems to regulate your engine’s temperature. Your engine’s coolants must be capable of withstanding cold temperatures without freezing and warm temperatures without boiling. Aside from maintaining constant engine temperatures as it passes through the cooling system, antifreeze prevents corrosion and lubricates engine components to ensure that everything moves and performs properly. A cooling system flush is necessary for maintaining proper performance levels.

 

WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE COOLING SYSTEM FLUSH & FILL SERVICES PERFORMED NEAR BRUNSWICK OHIO

Since antifreeze helps regulate your engine’s internal temperature, it is important to check antifreeze levels often. Coolant levels should only be checked when the engine is completely cool, because engine coolant can be hot enough to burn. Significantly lowered coolant levels usually mean you have a leak, or your engine is running too hot. Driving your vehicle on old engine coolant is a leading cause of cooling system failure. The purpose of any cooling system flush is to rid your vehicle of its old antifreeze. Our service staff can drain antifreeze from your radiator, flush out your cooling system, and add new antifreeze to your radiator. We are happy to do cooling system flushes on vehicles of all makes and models, and our knowledgeable service staff will approach your cooling system flush and fill with complete competence to deliver quality repairs.
