Car Radiator Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Radiator all about?

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.

Radiator

Keep in mind:

  • When replacing the radiator, it is best to also replace the radiator cap and thermostat.
  • After your radiator is replaced, it is best to have it checked for leaks, to assure that everything is in working order.
  • When the radiator is replaced, the entire cooling system should be checked, especially the radiator hoses.

How it's done:

  • Inspect radiator for leaks.
  • Pressure test cooling system.
  • Remove and replace the radiator.
  • Fill radiator with proper mixture of 50/50 coolant.
  • Recheck for leaks.

Our recommendation:

Follow the service maintenance schedule provided by the manufacturer to get the coolant replaced at regular intervals. It is a good practice to change the coolant every 25,000-40,000 miles. Replacing the coolant will ensure it is free of contaminants such as rust or scale that can block it from flowing through the radiator and engine. Given high engine temperatures, it is inevitable that the tanks in the radiator will eventually crack. The thermostat should be replaced when replacing the radiator as well as any necessary radiator hoses.The system should also be flushed out of all old coolant to remove any contamination.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Radiator?

  • Car is overheating.
  • Coolant (red, yellow, green fluid) is leaking.

How important is this service?

If a defective radiator is not replaced, the overheating of the engine can potentially lead to serious internal engine damage.

Tien

I made an appt. for Tien to come by and replace the fuel pump for my no start diagnosed by him through the inspection I had a few weeks earlier. Tien got to work on the car immediately on arrival. As in many if not all jobs, it turned out to be a more complicated than expected. In the process of changing the fuel pump, he discovered that the new fuel pump was slightly different than the one being replaced and the wiring would need to be adjusted somehow to be able to use the new one. It was amazing to see as he used his knowlege and experience to make the necessary adjustments to make the part work! He could have taken the "shortcut way" which a lot of mechanics would have done. When he removed the old fuel pump, it seems that only the fuel hose part was damaged beyond repair, but the rest of the unit was intact and probably still working. He could have maybe just changed the hose part and left the rest of the old unit as is, but decided to replace the whole unit if he could, pending the wiring adjustment mentioned above. Thanks Tien for a great job highly recommend you to everyone!

I was quite satisfied with the fact tha Jeff left the bedside of his wife to attend to fixing the problem with my vehicle. He was appropriately apologetic and pleasant. Time will tell if the service holds up.

Casey was fantastic! He arrived on time, got right to work, and was humorous and friendly even when my Escalade was being a butthead. Casey was patient but also reminded the Escalade that he was in charge. The brakes work great and I couldn't ask for a better job. The only thing I would ask is that he wear a cape, he's that good!
