Noe was very professional and explained the entire process to me before he went about his work. He did a great job and was done quickly so my daughter and I were able to start our day earlier than I thought we would be. I also want to mention that he was genuinely nice and not condescending, which is not the common experience I've had with other mechanics. Overall the experience exceeded my expectations. Thanks Noe!

Not only did he show up on time, but finished the repairs faster than normal and fixed a couple extra things on top of it (flat tire, missing oil cap), and also diagnosed my vehicle to give me a rundown of what repairs and maintenance should be done next. Above and beyond!

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.
