Long Beach Bixby Knolls Radiator Repair
Have you ever noticed that whenever there’s a car chase in a movie that the car being chased seems to always overheat followed by a stream of steam coming from under the hood? This is generally a sign that the vehicle has a damaged radiator or cooling system due to being shot or pushing the vehicle past it’s limits. As we all know, that’s just a movie. The reality about radiators is they can be a fragile component of your engine, and if not properly monitored and maintained it can fail and lead to additional costly engine repair. If you see steam coming from the radiator it is an indicator just like in the movies that your radiator has not been able to do it’s job and it can quickly lead to additional costly repairs if you continue driving.
The radiator is a component of your vehicle’s cooling system, and if it has a problem, the extremely high temperature of your engine running will cause your vehicle to overheat and likely, if ignored for even a short period it will fail. Additionally, your radiator prevents overheating by cooling the fluid that flows throughout your engine to dissipate engine heat.
Orozco’s Auto Service of Long Beach Bixby Knolls provides quality radiator repair and service. We can fix many types of leaks, radiator hoses, even replace with a new radiator from our 1,000’s of in-stock radiators. Occasionally you may notice water or a bright green or red colored antifreeze leaking under the vehicle this may mean there is a leak in either the radiator, the water pump, the thermostat, or one of the hoses.
Replacing the thermostat or repairing hoses is usually a fairly simple job and shouldn’t be too expensive. On the other hand repairing a radiator or water pump can be a bit more tricky depending on their location. Water pumps usually need to be replaced opposed to repaired. Radiators can be either repaired or replaced depending on the damage and area of the damage. There are sometimes instances where the radiator can be repaired, but the repair will not last and you should be cautious and get it replace as soon as possible.
