Timothy was terrific, highly knowledgeable and very personable. I had scheduled an appointment to have my daughter's O2 sensors replaced, but after he got here and assessed the situation, he said that we didn't need them replaced. He cleaned out a few areas that might have been causing the problem which reset the check engine light. I didn't get charged for anything except a diagnostic and the gas treatment he put in the car. The repair shop we had originally checked with had said the sensors needed replacing and quoted us $400 to do so and I'm sure if we had gone there instead of with Timothy, they would have been replaced without actually fixing the problem. Timothy was up front about everything he was doing in the car and gave us a list of possible upcoming maintenance items. I loved the service and will definitely use it 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.
