Cooling System Service and Repair
When you drive your vehicle, the parts in your engine create friction and that friction generates heat. Keeping up with your vehicle’s cooling system maintenance can be challenging. Fortunately our technicians at J&R Automotive Service specialize in vehicle maintenance and repair, including coolant system flushing and can keep your vehicle in proper working order.
Your vehicle’s cooling system is what keeps your vehicle from having a meltdown. All of the parts of your cooling system work together to meet one goal: moving coolant around the engine so it can absorb and dissipate heat. Cooling Systems reduce temperatures to help all other engine parts work properly.
The basic cooling system is made up of the following components:
- Radiator and hoses
- Water pump
- Thermostat and housing
- Electric cooling fan
- Thermo-time switch
During your Cooling System Service and Repair, J&R Automotive Service technicians will inspect:
- Hoses and belts for signs of leaks or fractures
- Your fluid level
- Signs of oxidation and corrosion
- Deposit or fluids which may show indications of damages or leaks
- If all parts, fans, and the thermostat are working effectively
When driving in extremely cold weather, you need to be sure you have proper levels of antifreeze in your vehicle to prevent freezing your liquid coolants and various other liquids in your engine.
Over time your vehicle’s cooling system will develop scale deposits which limit coolant flow. This means it’s time for a radiator flush. Having a qualified professional carry out regular inspections will ensure your vehicle stays effectively cooled down and working for many years to come. To keep your vehicle’s cooling system in proper working order, it is important to keep in mind the following:
- Disregarding your cooling system may lead to serious damages as well as complete engine failure
- Your antifreeze and coolant system need to be flushed as per manufacturers specification
- Your coolant levels must be inspected throughout every oil change
