Casey was very friendly communicative and helpful. While doing the oil change, he gave me several tips on doing the oil change at home myself and explained every steps. He gave me a call before his departure to let me know that he has left the place, but due to the traffic he arrived at my office 45 mins later to the appointment time. It would have been nice if I had some heads up about it before I called him 5 mins after the appointment time to see where he was at. During the call he let me know that he'd get to my office in 20 min, and arrived 40 min after that call. Well, I guess to be fair there was bad traffic and he had left his place 40 min prior to the appointment time and the office building was a little bit tricky to find. Anyways, after his arrival the oil change was completed in timely manner and overall everything else was very satisfactory.

All about Car 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.
