When you drive your vehicle, the parts in your engine create friction and that friction generates heat. Keeping up with your vehicle’s cooling system maintenance can be challenging. Fortunately, the team of ASE-certified technicians at Jensen Tire & Auto specialize in auto repairs, including radiator flush and radiator repair, to can keep your vehicle in proper working order.
The cooling system reduces temperatures to help all other engine parts work properly. All parts of the cooling system work together to achieve one goal: move coolant around the engine so it absorbs and dissipates heat. Simply put, your vehicle’s cooling system keeps it from having a meltdown.
When driving in extreme temperatures, you need to be sure you have proper levels of coolant/antifreeze in your automobile to prevent over-heating or freezing.
Over time, your vehicle’s cooling system will develop scale deposits, which limit coolant flow. When this happens, it’s time for a radiator flush. Having a qualified service professional perform regular inspections will ensure your vehicle stays effectively cooled down and working properly for years to come. To keep your automotive cooling system in proper working order, keep in mind the following:
- Disregarding the cooling system may lead to serious damages and engine failure
- Antifreeze and coolant system need to be flushed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles or every two years
- Coolant levels should be inspected at every oil change
The basic cooling system is made up of the following components:
- Radiator and hoses
- Water pump
- Thermostat and housing
- Electric cooling fan
- Thermo-time switch
During a radiator flush and radiator repair, your Jensen Tire & Auto service technician will inspect:
- Hoses and belts, for leaks and fractures
- Fluid level
- Signs of oxidation and corrosion
- Deposit or fluids, for damage and leaks
- All parts, fans, and thermostat
