How have I not found out about this service sooner? I've been so crazy busy lately and my car has fallen down on my list of priorities so to be able to come home and have someone fix my car while I get chores and dinner done, is amazing. Casey was really great. He didn't try to sell me anything. He left some feedback that I'll definitely look into but I appreciate he didn't try to push any sales. Very nice and did a great job. Thank you!

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.
