I'm new to California and was nervous about having to find a new mechanic. Jeff worked on a very tricky maintenance task on my car, the wheel bearings. Let me tell ya, the wheel bearings are a BEAR of a job on a Mazda Tribute because they're not where they are on other cars. He had to tear into the axel to get to them. I know this because I was told all about it from my first mechanic who did the front while I was still living in Oregon. Jeff did a great job and I'm so glad I have a mechanic now that I can trust!

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.
