So, what exactly makes up a car’s cooling system? Well, picture this: a cooling fan, water pump, thermostat, radiator, heater core, heater valve, and a bunch of other components working together to keep your engine from overheating. Essentially, the cooling system’s job is to kick out all that excess heat your engine generates during its heroic feats on the road.

Now, here’s the breakdown of how it all works: When your engine hits peak temperatures, the thermostat springs into action, releasing antifreeze from the engine to the radiator. This magical liquid absorbs all that extra heat, making sure your engine stays as cool as a cucumber. Plus, it prevents other engine fluids from boiling or freezing.

After the antifreeze does its job, it heads back to the radiator where it sheds all that heat like a champ, thanks to the cooling fan. Once it’s cooled down, it’s ready to jump back into action and keep your engine running smoothly.

Now, why should you care about maintaining this system? Well, your cooling system needs a little TLC too. Over time, that trusty antifreeze loses its effectiveness and can lead to corrosion if left unchecked. That’s where our team comes in handy. With a cooling system flush and fill, we’ll give your system the spa treatment it deserves, ensuring it stays in tip-top shape.

Your cooling fan is like the gatekeeper of coolness for your engine. If it decides to take a vacation, your engine could end up feeling the heat – literally. That’s why we make sure to check it for any signs of wear and tear during our inspections.

Let’s not forget about the radiator. It’s like the unsung hero of the cooling system, quietly working away to keep things running smoothly, if it springs a leak or decides to call it quits, it could spell trouble for your engine. That’s why we perform radiator pressure tests to catch any potential issues before they escalate into something major.

Here are some signs that your vehicle’s air conditioning might be on the fritz: lukewarm air blowing out, bad odors/smells, or a defroster that’s taking forever to kick in. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it might be time for a check-up.
