Giving your car to service is in my mind the biggest hassle. Having said that, I have faced some bad experiences with simple things like Oil Changes @ Midas, and other corporate brands near my home. When my brother in law recommended me to Jason, I was in two minds, but I decided to give it a shot. Jason was fantastic. He was very detsiled, patient and helpful in explaining what oil changes are, how synthetic oils have evolved over the years, and which oils are best suited for my vehicle in today's times. I loved that knowledge he had. I will go to Jason for every car related service from this point on ! I would highly recommend him for any type of service you need.

David was prompt and knew what he was doing. He quickly assessed that an unknown problem existed that would need to be repaired before the scheduled items could be properly installed. He promised to get the part and return the next day. Although the repair proved to be difficult, he was determined to get it done and done correctly, which he did. He was professional and knows cars. I would definitely recommend him for your automotive repairs. It's nice that this service comes to you.

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.
