WARNING: Never open a radiator cap unless you know for sure the engine has not been running!
The radiator is the center point of your vehicle’s cooling system. The radiator is what reduces the heat generated from burning gasoline, diesel and oil. The radiator circulates the coolant through your vehicle’s cooling system. To do its best job, the radiator must be clean and leak and blockage free. The coolant that circulates through the radiator, hoses, and engine block should be maintained and changed periodically. Over time coolant becomes acidic and degrades your cooling system. This can cause structural break-down of hoses, gaskets and belts. Old coolant can also lead to water pump failure. Leaky gaskets or hoses can start a chain reaction in your cooling system. Replacing gaskets and hoses can be less expensive than repairing entire cooling systems. Most of these issues can be avoided by performing radiator/coolant flushes at the intervals recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer.
Our professional technicians are certified to inspect and repair many problem areas of your cooling system including the radiator, thermostat, water pump, belts and more! Precision Automotive can pinpoint any issues that may exist within this complex system and provide solutions.
Here are just a few things we can do to help maintain your cooling system:
- Visual inspection of entire coolant system, including belts, hoses, caps, clamps, cooling fans, water pump and radiator
- Notation of any signs indicating overheating
- Perform a Combustion Leak Test designed to identify internal leak(s) in the combustion system which may not be visible upon inspection
- Oil and transmission fluid check to determine potential coolant leak in the engine
- Perform pressure test on radiator cap
- Top off coolant level, if necessary
- Injection of an ultraviolet tracer dye for a black light inspection of all coolant components to detect any leaks
- Multi-Point Inspection Give us a call at 253-759-2044 and let us help you.
