Cooling System Service & Repair

Is Your Vehicle Running Hot?
Is your car's temperature gauge showing in the red? Overheating is the most common cause of mechanical breakdowns on the road. When your car overheats, it causes severe damage to the engine and the transmission. Maintaining your vehicle’s radiator, fluids and cooling system is essential to keeping you on the road and preserving the life of your car.

Anti-freeze protects your engine from overheating and freezing. Coolant's protective properties break over time and can cause your radiator to rust and corrode. Over time, your cooling system can get clogged with built-up deposits from oil, grease, scale and hose decomposition. Your anti-freeze should be changed once a year, and some makes and models recommend flushing and refilling your radiator every two years, regardless of mileage.

Signs You Need To Have Your Cooling System Inspected

  • Your vehicle has recently overheated.
  • Your coolant or temperature light comes on.
  • Your temperature gauge reads higher than normal.
  • Your heater does not work.
  • Your car is leaking green fluid.
  • The vehicle's belts and hoses have not been replaced in the last 4 years.

Cooling System Repair

We'll diagnose your car or truck cooling system's problems and inform you of how well it is operating. Most vehicles will require a coolant flush and belt or hose replacement every few years. On older vehicles, we may need to replace cooling system components like radiators, water pumps or thermostats. If we detect failure of any of the parts of your cooling system during our diagnostic check, we'll recommend replacement with our NAPA guaranteed parts.
