When Would You Need Radiator Repairs?
A cooling system that fails will result in an overheated car,causing tremendous damage to the engine. The cooling system consists of the radiator, water pump, and thermostat, in addition to a myriad of belts and hoses. Every car owner should look for the following signs that warrant cooling system repair:
- High temperature: You might notice that your car temperature gauge is showing high temperature. Don’t ignore it and shut off your engine immediately.
- Hood steaming: An overheating engine can also be recognised by a steaming engine hood. Contact your mechanic immediately once you stop the engine.
- Coolant Leak: If you notice a bright green liquid under your vehicle, call your auto mechanic right away.
What Is a Cooling System Flush?
A cooling system flush or a radiator flush is sort of a blood transfusion for your cooling system. It flushes newer and cleaner water and antifreeze through the system to get rid of the old ones and removes contaminants along the way. A full flush will remove all persisting contaminants and prevent the newer liquids from contamination. An overheating engine can suggest the need for a cooling system flush. Sometimes, your engine will overheat even when the coolant level seems normal, and in such a case, it is a good idea to flush the radiator.
