Jose is your guy. Has great experience, worked quickly, thoughtful with his calls about his arrival time, and happy to chat, and let me hang out and learn from his work with my car. At one point, a small, rice sized piece of the carburetor system was dropped, and he persistently looked for it throughout the engine and garage until we found it. I think most mechanics would give up and have to delay the repairs until a new one could be ordered. Jose restored life within an hour to my 30 year old Jeep that had not been operational for over 3 years, and now it's running like new. I'll definitely request Jose next time I need help with my rig.

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.
