Robert is THEEEE abbbb' like'soooo'lute best and coolest mechanic I have met and dealt with, EVER! If he were surgeon I'd trust him with my life w/o a second thought. No one enjoys having problems with their cars, but if you have one, count yourself blessed and lucky if Robert shows up to get things back to running and ship shape. Nothing less than a five in my book, and six if it were possible to add one more. ^5 Robert!

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.
