Jose

I was a bit skeptical using an internet auto mechanic, but I am so glad I did. Jose arrived on time, introduced himself, tested the system, then went right to work. He put me at ease right away, was professional and did not "talk down" to me. He patiently answered all of my questions and never made me feel like he was in a hurry to get out of here. He made the repair and the bill was less than anticipated. I will definitely use this service and Jose again.

Ben

Great experience. I had ordered the wrong part originally (the Buick engine is crazy, what I thought was the front was actually the side. Go figure. That's why my battery is under the passenger seat in the back.) Anyway, Ben rescheduled the appt and he called me to let me know that he had the correct parts. He showed up on time (a little early) at my work-site. He is very professional and took the time to show me the malfunctioned parts. The quote was perfect. I had checked at a couple of garages beforehand and the price was a couple of hundred higher. I need a couple of other things done and will defiantly be scheduling with Ben again!!

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.
