Why You Should Turn to Pros for Your Radiator Services

Monday, September 24th, 2018

Front view of truckWhether we’re talking about your car, truck, or tractor, there is one very important component that helps to keep vehicles cool enough to operate—the radiator. This radiator functions by removing heat from the engine through coolant, moving the coolant throughout a series of coils. This cooled air then flows back into your engine to keep it from overheating.

If your radiator is leaking, that means you’re losing coolant. This will cause your vehicle’s engine to overheat, and break down. Some individuals believe they can still drive with a damaged or malfunctioning radiator, but this really isn’t safe. A leaking radiator is one of the most common problems our mechanics get called out for—and you really should turn to a pro for this kind of problem.

The Importance of Professional Repair for Radiator Leaks

Monday, May 7th, 2018

Front view of truckYour tractor, truck, and/or automobile all have one very important component within them that helps keep their engine cool—the radiator.

Does Your Heavy Duty Radiator Need Repair?

Monday, September 12th, 2016

A radiator’s job is relatively straightforward: it is tasked with keeping a vehicle’s engine from overheating. Engines produce heat while they are running, and coolant absorbs this heat, and then passes it through the radiator, where it is cooled off. This coolant then must be circulated back to the engine.

Even though the process seems simplistic, the radiator plays a huge role, and it must be in good working condition in order to prevent overheating and related damages. Whether you have a truck or a tractor, you want to know that its radiator is functioning as it should. But how do you know when it needs repair?

Signs that Your Radiator Needs to be Repaired

Friday, July 11th, 2014

The radiator is an essential component in all internal combustion engines. Its purpose, as you probably already know, is to disperse the thermal energy generated by the engine during use. Coolant circulates through the engine block, absorbing the thermal energy, and then travels through the radiator where such energy is dispersed. The process continues in order to ensure an ideal temperature for fuel combustion and to prevent overheating that can ruin the engine. Whether you drive a tractor, truck or automobile, the radiator is one of the most critical aspects of your vehicle. It’s important that it be properly serviced as need be. As a leading provider of radiator services in the Austin, TX area, we’re happy to provide just that, but recognizing that you have a problem in the first place is up to you.

There are several indications that your radiator may need to be serviced by a trained professional. It’s important that such work be done by a specialist so that you can be assured that the root of the problem is discovered and that an adequate solution is provided.

Keep an eye out for the following:

  • Temperature gauge. Your engine is equipped with a temperature gauge that constantly monitors the heat of your engine and adjusts the cooling system accordingly. You have probably heard your radiator fan turn on during the summer while waiting for the light to change. If you notice that your temperature gauge has come on or it reveals that the temperature of the engine is out of control, then make sure you shut it down and get in touch with a professional. Ignoring the warning signs of an overheated engine can lead to exorbitant repair costs and even the replacement of your engine itself.
  • White smoke. The dreaded white smoke. When you have a coolant leak, the coolant can drip onto the hot metal of your engine and produce a white smoke emerging from underneath your hood. If you notice this coming out of your hood, then you’re definitely ready for radiator repair.
