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.

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.
