Contact Us

If it’s one thing we know about this pandemic, it’s that everything has been slowed down to a crawl – and in many cases, to a complete stop. Nothing has been able to progress as it used to, and with so many businesses closing shop – whether temporarily or for good – the reasons to drive around your vehicle may be less and less.

A lengthy downtime can impact your vehicle’s reliability and make it more likely that it will fail you when it gets back on the road. With the radiator being one of the most important (and one of the most susceptible) parts to the cooling system in your vehicle, you need to know what to do to handle your radiator repair services. Keep reading this article find out more!

1. Make Sure to Flush Your Radiator Fluid

Just like having your oil changed, your car’s radiator fluid also needs to be flushed out and replaced. The good news is that this process doesn’t have to happen nearly as much as your oil change does, but with your car sitting down it’d be wise to drain the fluid and replace it with a fresh supply. 

2. Check Your Temperature Gauge

Another reason for radiators failing to work properly is a failed temperature gauge. The temperature gauge helps you keep a check on the car temperature readings, and if the gauge fails to work you won’t know if there’s anything wrong with your radiator. Make sure your temperature gauge is in working condition to keep you and your car safe.

3. Check Your Water Pump and Radiator Hose

Your radiator is connected to a circuit that includes a water pump, radiator hose and heater hoses all of which help move the radiator fluid. With that said, you’ll want to check out both your pump and your hoses to make sure there aren’t any damages or leaks that could end up overheating your car’s components.
