Blistering outside air temperatures can cause operating temperatures in your vehicle to rise quickly, and if your radiator is leaking, not filled properly, or plugged with contaminants, you are going to face overheating problems from soaring engine temperatures.
A radiator transfers heat from the engine to keep it within operating limits established by the manufacturer. If your cooling system isn’t working correctly, the engine will overheat, and there’s a real risk of damage to several components.
Our staff here at Millikan Battery and Electric want you to know the best way to keep your radiator and cooling system working efficiently so that you aren’t stranded by an overheating vehicle.
A visual inspection of all components is handy to spot leaks or bulges in hoses that could mean they are about to fail. Taking a look at the radiator itself is also an easy way to find leaks or damage. Don’t forget to look on the ground for evidence of leaking too.
For further investigation, it’s best to have your radiator, pressure cap, and coolant checked by experienced technicians. If you find that you need Apopka auto repair, choose a shop that has the skills you need to service and repair your cooling system.
