My First time using "YourMechanic" and I was not sure what to expect. I was more than satisfied with the experience. I had a serious issue with my 2006 Mazda tribute, but didn't know how serious. The car is not safe to drive and I was looking at Nearly $100 Rnd trip to get it to a mechanic at a shop to be diagnosed. Then i was concerned about being a hostage to that shop. Dwight was incredible...knowledgeable (extremely), personable, professional...all the superlatives. The bottom line was that my car needs a new engine, which is not within the scope of the work "YourMechanic" does. No worries, Dwight made some recommendations and offered to look into some reputable shops that do this type of work. It wasn't good news by any means, but it was credible and not as bad as I had feared. Great job Dwight! It was a pleasure meeting you today.

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.
