I gota say, I dont see myself ever going back to a shop for services or repair. This was my first experience with YourMechanic and was fortunate to have Chris diagnose and repair my truck. Chris calls to let you know he is on his way. No bad vibes with Chris, he talks to you to explain whats going on and to get more information from you, and then he gets down to work. He made 2-trips, one for the diagnostics and the other for the repair because I requested him for it. Both times he was running early and called to ask if he could swing by and one time I said I couldnt but he was very cool about it and still worked with me on a new time. YourMechanic allows you to request the same or a different mechanic and the absolutely best part of it all is you can provide your own part. Oh and the diagnostic cost was credited to the cost of labor. I know some shops do that, but you're gona pay half with these guys and you cant beat the convenience. Anyways, Chris did a great job with my fuel pump replacement, truck sounds beautiful when it starts man and feels like new. Thank you Chris!

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.
