I like Alex - he works quickly, efficiently, and he's quite knowledgeable when it comes to autos and repairs.
Alex was timely and knowledgeable, and also kind enough to walk me through my vehicles problems and any other questions I had. I’d happily give him my business again.

Peter was very professional throughout the whole process. He explained a lot about what he was doing as he was working on my car. He gave recommendations on what I should get done in the future and how I can do it if need be. Peter made the whole idea of trying this website out much more easier on my mind and knowing that my vehicle would be fix.

Grzegorzs is the best mechanic in the Bay Area hands down! He went the extra mile (pun intended) taking care of my Kia spectra to make sure everything was working properly. I never felt taken advantage of or price gouged which unfortunately can happen with a lot of mechanics. Great work!

It seemed too good to be true. I just stumbled upon this website and punched a few keys, and within minutes I had a quote, an appointment, and a mechanic. The morning of, I received a text stating that Adam was on his way. Right on time, Adam got straight to work. It was very obvious that he had everything under control so I left him to his business. Before the kids were finished with breakfast, I saw that my new radiator was going in. Not long after he was refilling my car with coolant and in record time was finished. My mind was blown how fast this large task was made to look so small. A true professional. I would recommend Adams services and this website to anyone too busy to work on cars issues.

Car Radiator Replacement Service

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.
