Radiator Repair in Middleton, WI
Your vehicle’s engine creates a great deal of heat while running, which is why your car is equipped with a cooling system. This cooling system helps to regulate the temperature of the engine to prevent it from overheating and protect engine parts from damage. The radiator is the part of the cooling system which helps to dissipate heat that the coolant picks up from the engine and releases that heat so that the engine stays at the right temperature.
If an issue with the radiator occurs, the cooling system will fail which will cause your engine to overheat. Engine overheating can lead to severe engine damage and part corrosion, which is something you want to avoid. That is why it is so important to get your vehicle into the professionals here at Aeschbach Automotive as soon as you suspect an issue with the radiator or cooling system. Our ASE certified technicians will perform a full inspection of the cooling system to determine the problem and identify any repairs that may be needed to get your cooling system working properly again.
The main symptom of a radiator issue is an overheating engine. If your engine is running at a higher temperature than usual or is completely overheating, we recommend coming by our shop as soon as possible. The longer you drive with a failing cooling system, the more damage that will occur to the engine that will need to be repaired.
A radiator repair or flush at our shop will include an inspection of the following:
- Coolant fluid level
- Signs of corrosion and oxidation
- Thermostat, fans, and other parts for proper working order
- Belts and hoses for signs of fractures or leaks
- Fluids or deposit which might show indications of leaks or damages
Over time, the cooling system can begin to develop deposits that can limit coolant flow. This requires a radiator flush service which we can perform here at our shop. This will consist of our experts flushing out the cooling system, removing all old fluid and deposit build-up, and replacing it with fresh coolant.
