Radiator Flush Service

Running Hot Water Under the Hood?

Cooling system failure is the #1 cause of engine breakdowns on the highway. A little maintenance can go a long way to preventing a potentially expensive engine problem and a lot of inconvenience for you and your family.

Signs of Overheating

Keep an eye out for the following signs and symptoms; your car or truck may be telling you it needs a little cooling system care:

  • Dashboard temperature gauge shows the car is in the red or running hot.
  • Any colored fluid is leaking from the engine.
  • Steam is coming from the engine.
  • Car engine smells “hot”.
  • Engine belts and hoses are more than 5 years old or are showing signs of wear, such as cracking.
  • Auto manual recommends maintenance, such as replacement of anti-freeze.


The Diagnosis and Services

So what might be causing your vehicle to overheat? It could be any one of many cooling system components. Here’s what we’ll check:

  • Radiator

  • Water pump
  • Thermostat
  • Fan belts

Inspect system and pressure test for leaks
