Your Mechanic is excellent!! After calling several mechanics and garages for quotes about replacing a radiator, I tried Your Mechanic. I received a quote within 2 hours that was considerably less than every place I had called AND the mechanic (Joshua Floyd) came to my house to do the work! Mr. Floyd did an excellent job of explaining to me what the job entailed, how long it would take, and how my truck should run after he was done. Less than an hour later my truck had a new radiator and Your Mechanic (and Joshua Floyd) has an extremely happy customer! I will definitely use them 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.
