Don't Get Heated: Service Your Car's Radiator

As a car owner, you understand that it is important to do routine maintenance on your car, and one part that needs to be taken care of is the radiator. Below is an explanation of what a radiator is and how to maintain it:

  • Radiator - The purpose of the car's radiator is to keep the engine cool and keep heat from causing damage to the engine.
  • Warning Signs - Some signs that the radiator is not working properly are engine overheating, leaking coolant, coolant is rusty or the color of oil. It is important to address these issues quickly before permanent damage is done to the engine.
  • Maintenance - Doing routine maintenance on your radiator will help extend the life of the radiator and prevent costly repairs. Be sure to check the coolant level; too little coolant will inhibit the removal of heat and cause damage to the engine. If the coolant level is low, check the reservoir to make sure it is not cracked or leaking and needs to be replaced.
