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.

Jose was very professional and figured out my issue quickly while also showing me why it was not what I thought it was. He advised me on the other minor or potential issues he found with my car (rear brakes) as well. Once I have the actual work performed(the inspection/diagnosis was all that was performed so far) I'm confident I will be able to provide another positive review.

I have a 2002 PT Cruiser (not a Ford Ranger). This is the first time I used YourMechanic.com and the work I wanted done was to replace the radiator that had a leak and the upper and lower hoses. The quote I got online was about $200 less than the auto repair shop and I was a little worried but went ahead with it anyway. I...am...impressed! Not only with the ease of the online system but with the mechanic. Jason was great-friendly, professional, extremely competent. He went above and beyond by explaining a variety of functions and when I told him I also planned to use YourMechanic after the first of the month after I got my retirement check to get the serpentine and timing belt replaced, he said he would check out their condition. When it was time to pay the bill it was even LESS than the online quote! Jason said the upper hose looked almost new, no wear and tear so he deducted the cost of the hose and his labor for that part from the online quote. AMAZING! As for the two belt replacements, he said they looked fine and were good for another 30,000 miles. Double AMAZING! Would I use YourMechanic and Jason again? YOU BET! In fact, when my son-in-law came by while Jason was working on my car he commented on the good job he was doing so I recommended he use YourMechanic and Jason when he needed any car repair.
