Within one day of the quote, he arrived on time to replace the serpentine belt on my van, but diagnosed a bigger problem which was why it broke in the first place. He had to come back two additional times, but arrived on time each time. The overall cost, while three time more than quoted, was still much cheaper than I would have paid at the shop. He left the area clean and we are completely satisfied. Would definitely use him and this service again.

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.
