Check Your Car’s Coolant System Before it’s too Late
Most of the time people don’t really think to check their vehicle’s cooling system. Your cooling system, or radiator and other components, is very important in making sure nothing overheats under the hood. Depending on your make and model, you may not always get a warning sign or check engine light if something is wrong with the cooling system which is why it’s very helpful to have an idea of what to look for if you think there could be a problem.
One or more of the following could mean you have a problem with your heating or coolant system:
- Seeing a leak underneath the front of the car
- Vehicle is overheating
- The heater or air conditioner isn’t working
These problems could easily be avoided if you make sure to have your heating and coolant system checked every time you get your oil checked. The mechanics at 2J’s Automotive can make sure everything is running the way it should be giving your automobile a free diagnostic test ($80 value) and find out what exactly is wrong with it.
There are a number of different components that need to be checked when it comes to the cooling system. The radiator, water pump, hoses, transmission cooler, and coolant levels are all checked to make sure they are working the way they should be.
Note: Most of the time the issue is low coolant levels and it is an easy fix. However, if there is serious damage or buildup then a coolant flush may be necessary.
There are a number of different risks that go into flushing a coolant system so it’s best to let the professionals at 2J’s Automotive take care of it for you. After the initial repair they can also check anything else you may have a question about just let them know.
