It was a great experience. Lucas DeBarros was on time. He also called ahead of time to let me know that he would be there. He had great customer service skills, and he made me feel very confident that he would solve my car challenges. He was so pleasant and happy that I almost didn't want him to leave. He showed a genuine concern for my car problem and he was fast and efficient! With my next car challenge the awesome service of Your Mechanic and the happy smiling Lucas DeBarros will inevitably pop into my mind, and I will contact them.

This is the second time I have had Chet come and work on my car. He is such a friendly person I recommend him to everyone! I am not the brightest when it comes to cars and Chet is able to explain things to me in a way that I am able to understand. He saved me money twice now and I will continue to book him for maintenance on my car.

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.
