First off, I don't ever write reviews for anything but Ben did such an incredible job that I had to. He came early, and was very polite. He was very professional and clearly knew what he was talking about. Since I have a VW Beetle, its hard to find a mechanic who knows about these cars. He explained everything he was doing in order to find the problem, and it only took him about 15 minutes. Very fast and experienced. I booked my service appointment with him too because I know he will do a great job. Overall great experience with Ben and would definitely recommend him to my friends.

Best. Wouldn't trust anyone else with my car except for "Ricky". He knows what he's doing, gets to the point and wants to get your car up and running. Very friendly and understanding, very clear when it comes to explaining your car. I highly recommend him to anyone with car issues. I am extremely satisfied with his service.

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.
