Auto 101: Radiator Repair And The Cooling System

Radiator Repair


Fullerton Radiator Repair

Have your ever noticed that when you watch a movie with a car chase the car being chased usually overheats and suddenly there’s a bunch of steam coming from under the hood. This usually means that the vehicle has a damaged radiator due to being shot or pushing the vehicle past it’s limits. As we know, it’s just a movie. But the reality is radiators can be a fragile component of your engines cooling system and if not properly monitored and maintained it can fail.

The radiator is one of the elements of your vehicle’s cooling system, and if there’s a problem with it, the extremely high temperatures of your engine running will cause the vehicle to overheat and likely and if ignored for even a short time will fail. Moreover, your radiator prevents overheating by cooling the fluid that flows throughout your engine to dissipates your engine’s heat. 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.

Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton 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. Sometimes if you notice water or 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 and repairing the hoses or thermostat is usually a fairly simple process and shouldn’t be too expensive. 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 technician knows the repair will not last due to the circumstances at hand.
