Nelson is a superstar. He was running a bit late - But called me in advance to let me know he was a bit behind schedule (From experience - This is the hard part of ANY travelling discipline). The work was done expertly and quickly. Will definitely book with Nelson again.

Brandon was very personable and got the job done. He called ahead of time indicating his arrival time would be a little later due to a previous appointment (it was late in the day). I needed the starter replaced and he brought the part with him. When he got to the point of installing the new part, he realized it was defective before he put it on as on of the bolts was shorter than it needed to be. He was quickly able to find a replacement part at a nearby shop and finished the job. The car starts wonderfully now. Brandon was very courteous and answered all the questions I had. Would use him again.

All about 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.
