Cooling System and Radiator Repair in Greenville
Your car’s cooling system is designed to keep your engine from melting, or more accurately, keeping your cylinders or engine block from cracking.
So, yeah, it’s pretty important because a malfunctioning cooling system can lead to a total engine replacement.
A large part of enjoying your car for as long as possible is taking care of each component as needed. One of the most important systems to maintain is the cooling system in your car. The cooling system maintains the temperature of your engine and regulates the flow of coolant through the engine block.
Did you know that overheating is the most common cause of mechanical breakdowns on the road?
And that overheating can cause severe damage to the engine and the transmission? Maintaining your vehicle’s radiator, fluids and entire cooling system, including thermostats is essential to keeping you and your vehicle on the road to your destination, not on the phone with a tow truck company.
Cooling System and Radiator Repair in Greenville – AAMCO
Like all items on a car, the thermostat wears a little bit with each use. The continual opening and closing of the thermostat will eventually cause it to wear out. Coolant needs to be replaced. All this is not to extract money from unsuspecting car owners – it’s designed solely to keep you ON the road, NOT on the shoulder waiting in the summer heat for a tow truck.
Most drivers know it’s recommended that a vehicle’s oil should be changed at regular intervals. Drivers typically don’t realize, however, about the proper intervals for changing their vehicle’s other vital fluids. For the cooling system, check your car’s owner’s manual to see the recommended interval for changing the coolant in your vehicle but you’ll want to come to AAMCO now if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Your vehicle has recently overheated
- Your coolant or temperature light comes on
- Your temperature gauge reads higher or lower than normal
- Your heater does not work
