I received a text alert from Rod letting me know that he was on the way to my house. Upon arriving he introduced himself and went right to work on my truck. Rod had all of the necessary tools and the new parts to do the job. He was very knowledgeable,fast and clean. When Rod finished the job. He double checked all of his work, took pictures and then took my truck for a test drive. I was very impressed with Rod. He is a first class professional, who truly has a passion and cares for what he does. I will definitely use Your Mechanic and Rod again in the future. Thanks again Rod.

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.
