Fantastic mechanic. The cost of changing the oil at a Mercedes dealership was $283.00. He saved me over $190.00. He showed up on time, with a great smile. He sure knows his business. Did a great job!!!!!

A+ quality work, professionalism and friendliness. Enrique performed an initial inspection on my vehicle due to the temperature gauge light coming on. He arrived early and upon completion of the inspection provided me with very detailed information regarding the issue reported. I scheduled an appointment to perform the recommended work and let me just say Enrique is a jewel. Again, he arrived early he was friendly and courteous and described everything to me in detail. As soon as he completed the job, he explained what he did, why he did not have to perform certain other recommended repairs and the information was provided in such a way, that even me as a woman who knows nothing about cars could understand. I will definitely use Enrique in the future :-)

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.
