Dan was great! He called me around 11 am to asked if he could come earlier, he arrived around noon and got the job done by 1:30. That included going to get a hose and installing it! I will definitely book future appointments to use Dan and I have already told all my friends! Great job and thanks for not giving me the run around like Pep Boys! They wanted to charge me $1012.52 to replace my whole cooling system when it was only a heater hose! Dan is a life saver and a wallet saver!

All about Car 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.
