This is my first time hearing of something like this. Patrick was very nice. I guess he had time available earlier than my appointment and asked if i would like it done sooner and I was like "yesss that would be great" .....i was able to drive my own car for lunch. Simple things in life to make my life easier is always appreciated.

Top-notch service. If there were 10 starts, I would gladly give him 10. Kept us well-informed before, during and after service. He detected couple of other problems but was honest about 1 of them not being high-prioirty fix. Absolutely amazing. Super friendly, knows what he's doing, super honest, etc..etc. Keep up the great work! Mark will be my mechanic for through YourMechanic.

Tom was friendly and professional. I was a few minutes late getting home, but he was very understanding and got straight to work as soon as I arrived. He did a great job with the oil change and left my driveway just as it was when he arrived. I loved the convenience of having him come to our house and will definitely be using YourMechanic 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.
