Car Radiator Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Radiator all about?

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.

Radiator

Keep in mind:

  • When replacing the radiator, it is best to also replace the radiator cap and thermostat.
  • After your radiator is replaced, it is best to have it checked for leaks, to assure that everything is in working order.
  • When the radiator is replaced, the entire cooling system should be checked, especially the radiator hoses.

How it's done:

  • Inspect radiator for leaks.
  • Pressure test cooling system.
  • Remove and replace the radiator.
  • Fill radiator with proper mixture of 50/50 coolant.
  • Recheck for leaks.

Our recommendation:

Follow the service maintenance schedule provided by the manufacturer to get the coolant replaced at regular intervals. It is a good practice to change the coolant every 25,000-40,000 miles. Replacing the coolant will ensure it is free of contaminants such as rust or scale that can block it from flowing through the radiator and engine. Given high engine temperatures, it is inevitable that the tanks in the radiator will eventually crack. The thermostat should be replaced when replacing the radiator as well as any necessary radiator hoses.The system should also be flushed out of all old coolant to remove any contamination.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Radiator?

  • Car is overheating.
  • Coolant (red, yellow, green fluid) is leaking.

How important is this service?

If a defective radiator is not replaced, the overheating of the engine can potentially lead to serious internal engine damage.

Honorio

My experience was dreadful and I am intending to YELP loudly. I scheduled my first appointment and one hour before Honorio was to arrive it was canceled because previous work took longer than expected. That should have been a red flag for me. Honorio is a good man but had no idea how to fix my drive door window. He was continually checked Youtube to guide him. He ended up bending the regulator (confirmed by the General Tire and Auto mechanics who fixed my driver door window) and his wife had to bring a spare one. He could not install it the regulator. He arrived two hours early and after 5 hours nothing was accomplished. He removed both the inner door and out drive door panels. When he attempted to reattach the outer door panel he left the door rivet inside the cavity of the door. When my son-in-law and I pointed that out to him he stated that there was no rivet, even after we showed him the one on the passenger side. We closed the driver side door several times so he could hear the rivet inside the panel bouncing around. I initially was going to keep the "new" motor, which is still in its box after Honorio removed it and put back in the original motor. I was told by your phone representative that Honorio (or his wife) would pick it up. They didnot pick it up and you charged me $73 for a new motor that you removed from the door. If you refund my money and pick up the motor I will refrain from YELPing. If you refund my money and pick up the motor I will not forward this email to the Bureau of Automotive Repair and just call it a bad day for all. Godspeed, Tom.

Though I have owned my car now for close to 20 years, this was my very first time using YourMechanic and I am extreeeemely impressed with the entire service I received today - online on the website, on the phone with customer service, and in person.with my mechanic Ricardo. Very pleased with how punctual, professional, courteous and, most of all, knowledgeable Ricardo was regarding issues with my 1999 Saturn SL (an older car and yet he was quite informed about the parts, the problems, and how to fix my speed sensor etc.). I will be not only using YourMechanic in the future for subsequent service to my car, but I will be specifically requesting Ricardo to be my mechanic!
