Description of Cooling System Repair

The cooling system consists of a cooling fan, water pump, thermostat, radiator, heater core, heater valve, and various other parts that primarily work together to dissipate and remove heat from a vehicle’s engine. Your vehicle’s cooling system is responsible for reducing the temperature inside your engine and preventing possible overheating. Excess heat can build in a variety of places in your vehicle’s engine. When the engine reaches maximum operating temperatures, the thermostat opens and releases antifreeze from the engine to the radiator, which initiates the circulatory flow to absorb excess heat. The antifreeze is also responsible for keeping other engine fluids from boiling or freezing. After the antifreeze flows through the engine, it cycles back to the radiator, where the excess heat escapes through the radiator’s walls. The antifreeze is cooled by the cooling fan and readied to be re-released into the engine to dissipate additional heat.

Benefits of Cooling System Repair

Over time, antifreeze breaks down and loses its efficiency. If not drained and replaced, old antifreeze can lead to corrosion. During a cooling system flush and fill, our staff will drain the antifreeze from the radiator, flush the cooling system, and fill the radiator with new antifreeze. The cooling system’s cooling fan circulates air through the radiator and passes excess heat out of the engine. If the cooling fan malfunctions, your vehicle’s engine will overheat. During an inspection of the cooling system service, our experts will check the cooling fan for damage and the fan belt for cracks. Because the radiator is responsible for cooling the antifreeze as it circulates throughout the cooling system, a leak or a broken radiator hose can lead to major engine failure. A radiator pressure test is one way we can check for potential leaks or radiator damage. Ultimately, neglecting basic cooling system and radiator maintenance can lead to a potential radiator replacement and major engine or radiator repairs down the road.

The Basics Behind Cooling System Pressure Test Services 

In a vehicle with a combustion engine, fuel is converted into heat energy, which means the vehicle can get very hot very quickly. The cooling system reduces internal engine temperatures and prevents possible overheating by dissipating and removing heat from the vehicle’s engine. Cooling systems use antifreeze to control the internal temperature of the vehicle. Engine coolants, like antifreeze, have to withstand low temperatures without freezing and high temperatures without boiling. The antifreeze in your cooling system is composed of ethylene glycol and water. This mixture improves the boiling and freezing points of antifreeze and makes it effective at controlling a vehicle's temperature. Aside from keeping your engine cool as it circulates throughout the cooling system, antifreeze also prevents corrosion and helps lubricate the engine to keep it in proper working order. If your cooling system experiences a leak, it’s crucial that you get it checked out sooner rather than later.


 

Why Should You Have Cooling System Pressure Test Services Performed at Auto Pro Tires and Service?

The cooling system plays a very important role in regulating the internal temperatures in your vehicle. Unfortunately, cooling systems are not impervious to damage. Leaks can occur when corrosion is present, and these leaks may be hard to find. Because antifreeze helps maintain consistent internal temperatures while preventing corrosion and lubricating internal components, a cooling system leak left untreated will eventually lead to bigger problems. If you spot a leak, be sure to visit us for a cooling system pressure test. Our pressure test can locate the source of the leak. Once a leak is identified, a member of our service staff can determine the proper repair procedure. Our cooling system pressure test is effective and dependable, and we are confident that we will be able to make the cooling system repairs that your vehicle requires.

The Basics Behind Replace Radiator Services at Auto Pro Tires and Service

The radiator on your car helps keep your engine cool. An overheated engine will lead to a breakdown, so radiator maintenance is very important to the overall functionality of your vehicle. The radiator sits at the front of the engine bay and is constructed with slim, hollow channels that run from the inlet tank to the outlet tank. Liquid coolant gets pumped through a sequence of tubes to the engine, where the liquid is warmed by the working engine. After the coolant passes through the engine, it makes its way to the radiator, which is constructed so that the flowing liquid is cooled by air passing through the radiator. The air is allowed in through the grill on the front of the car. Once the liquid is cooled down again, the coolant cycles back through the engine to absorb more heat in a continuous cycle to keep the engine working at optimal temperatures.

Why Should You Have Replace Radiator Services Performed at Auto Pro ?

It’s extremely important to repair or replace your radiator if it isn’t working properly. If you think your radiator is malfunctioning, there are signs that might help you determine the appropriate time to schedule a service. One sign that your radiator isn’t working could be an elevated temperature gauge, which is an indication that your engine may be overheating. Another sign of a malfunctioning radiator is a green, yellow, or orange puddle of coolant under your car, which may point to a radiator leak. Radiators spring leaks due to corrosion. If you notice problems with your radiator, contact us and we’ll determine if your radiator needs to be repaired or replaced.
