Car Radiator Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Radiator all about?

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.

Radiator

Keep in mind:

  • When replacing the radiator, it is best to also replace the radiator cap and thermostat.
  • After your radiator is replaced, it is best to have it checked for leaks, to assure that everything is in working order.
  • When the radiator is replaced, the entire cooling system should be checked, especially the radiator hoses.

How it's done:

  • Inspect radiator for leaks.
  • Pressure test cooling system.
  • Remove and replace the radiator.
  • Fill radiator with proper mixture of 50/50 coolant.
  • Recheck for leaks.

Our recommendation:

Follow the service maintenance schedule provided by the manufacturer to get the coolant replaced at regular intervals. It is a good practice to change the coolant every 25,000-40,000 miles. Replacing the coolant will ensure it is free of contaminants such as rust or scale that can block it from flowing through the radiator and engine. Given high engine temperatures, it is inevitable that the tanks in the radiator will eventually crack. The thermostat should be replaced when replacing the radiator as well as any necessary radiator hoses.The system should also be flushed out of all old coolant to remove any contamination.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Radiator?

  • Car is overheating.
  • Coolant (red, yellow, green fluid) is leaking.

How important is this service?

If a defective radiator is not replaced, the overheating of the engine can potentially lead to serious internal engine damage.

This was my first experience with My Mechanic, and Steven represented the company well. He was timely, efficient and put us at ease. When I texted for a quote, the guy reported being from California and was very helpful and professional. He thoroughly explained the process and what to expect. I wasn't enthused about having to give my credit card number over the phone, but I suppose it is neccecary to avoid wasting time and gas for employee's if a customer flakes out. I was far less impressed with the office staff. I'd attempted to postpone the appointment, but was told there would be a late cancellation fee placed on my card. I believe $50. To avoid this, I had a friend wait at my house for the mechanic. I explained I'd be unreachable the following day and that my phone was being erratic about messages. I was assured someone would be here at the specified time. I'd explained I convinced a friend to sit at my house to meet the mechanic. She had things to do, however sat here for two hours, no one showed up. I called the following day to inquire as to what had happened and was not happy about the way the employee spoke to me. When I inquired as to why the mechanic hadn't shown up. I'm not difficult, and understand things come up. but she went straight into defensive, rude about having left a voicemail re. the mechanic not showing up. Ultimately, I ended up rescheduling. I am glad I did, as Steven was great. She'd been so indignant about the mandatory $50 fee when attempting to reschedule the dayvbefore, but I'm more concerned with the skill of a mechanic than whoever handles the phones. The rate was very fair and I will probably use Your Mechanic again.

Blake

Blake did a great job and explained many things to me since I at one time intended to do the work myself. He had unique solutions to certain problems such as an over tight axle bolt and was even willing to try minor suggestions when things didn't go a certain way. I was impressed by his enthusiasm, knowledge, experience and focus from start to successful test drive. Overall, because of Blake I found the YourMechanic.com experience very positive and will recommend the service to my friends. It saved me significant money from dealer and independent bids and it was quality work.
