Enrique

Enrique is very professional, courteous, and thorough. He was fully prepared and equipped for the job, and was very well organized. He performed the work in a timely manner. A more serious, deeper problem within the engine remained after he was done, and will require significantly heavier maintenance which is beyond the scope of this company and service. Nevertheless, I highly recommend Enrique, and will use him and YourMechanic again in the future, if I have other maintenance needs on this car or my other car. He is a good man.

All about Car Radiator Replacement

The radiator performs a critical function; it keeps the engine from overheating. While running, the engine produces heat. Coolant flowing through the system absorbs and removes extra heat from the engine. The coolant then passes through the radiator where it cools off and is later circulated back to the engine to absorb heat again. A radiator has two tanks that are connected to each other through aluminum or brass tubes. When the coolant passes through these tubes, the radiator cooling fan blows air across the radiator to lower the temperature of the coolant. The tank is usually made of plastic, and it is common for it to crack and start leaking coolant. If the tank or the tubes crack, coolant will leak , the vehicle will overheat and could cause severe engine damage. Radiators also tend to clog over time. When this occurs, not enough coolant flows through the radiator leading to heat build-up, causing the engine to overheat.
