Your automobile’s cooling system is one of the most important systems in your car. If your cooling system is malfunctioning, your car is in danger of overheating. A car that is overheating can cause major engine damage if it gets too hot, or is hot for a long period of time.
There are many reasons why your cooling system might not be working. You may need a radiator repair, or a radiator hose may have burst or come apart. A Water Pump that is leaking, or has failed can also cause your car to overheat. There are many components in your cooling system that must be checked to determine why your car has overheated.Some common services and repairs related to your cooling system include:
- Radiator Repair
- Radiator Leak Repair
- Radiator Cap Replacement
- Radiator Hose Replacement
- Water Pump Replacement
- Head Gasket Repair
- Cooling System Flush
When Boulder Auto Service and Repair does a cooling system diagnosis, we pressure test your entire cooling system and check for leaks or other problems that are causing your car to overheat. During the pressure test we check your radiator to rule out the need for a radiator leak repair or a radiator replacement. We will also check the condition of the coolant in your radiator. We test the Ph, and the condition of the fluid (dirty fluid or incorrect Ph would indicate that you might need a cooling system flush). We also check to make sure that your antifreeze is strong enough to protect your car to -35 degrees, which is the recommendation for our climate here in the Denver/Boulder area.
If you ever notice the temperature gauge of your car inching up, or actually in the red range, do not ignore the problem. This indicates that you have a situation that must be dealt with immediately to prevent engine damage.
