Radiator Repair and Cooling System Maintenance
Colorado’s Cooling and Radiator Experts Will Keep Your Car Driving at the Right Temperature
Overheating in the cooling system is the most common cause of mechanical breakdowns on the road, and that overheating can cause severe damage to both the engine and transmission. Nobody wants to have to visit a radiator repair shop, and the only way to ensure that is by taking good care of your vehicle.
Coolant (also called anti-freeze) protects your engine from freezing. Coolant’s effectiveness can diminish over time and it can lose many of its protective properties: in some cases causing your radiator to both rust and corrode. The cooling system can also become blocked with built-up deposits from oil, grease, scale, hose decomposition, and other materials. So we highly recommend getting your cooling system serviced and checked on at least once a year. Otherwise problems are undoubtedly going to arise in the future.
Coolant manufacturers recommend doing a coolant system flush every year, and some service manuals call for flushing and refilling your radiator every 24 months, regardless of mileage.
