Radiator Repair in Mira Mesa, CA

car-radiatorDo you smell a sickly-sweet, burnt sugar odor from your engine? Do you notice a green or orange drip under the front of your car? Do you notice the temperature gauge climbing dangerously high when you’re driving, particularly when stuck in Mira Mesa traffic? It could be your radiator.

What Does the Radiator Do?

Your radiator is the backbone of your vehicle’s cooling system. It dissipates heat from the coolant that circulates through the engine. If it leaks fluid or becomes plugged, severe engine damage can be the result of overheating. Scheduled cooling system maintenance can help prevent failures, however some circumstances can’t be avoided. A stone or other debris can impact the radiator, causing a leak, or environmental elements may contribute to premature failure.

Flushing the Radiator

Coolant should be changed every 5 years or 100,000 miles. Neglected coolant can cause mineral deposits in the radiator core or acidic properties in the fluid can corrode the core. Avoid costly repairs by performing preventative maintenance on your cooling system. Be sure to consult your owner’s manual for flush and fill recommendations. If you do not have an owners manual, feel free to contact us for the specific information about your vehicle’s cooling system.
