Cooling System

 

Your radiator protects your engine and air conditioning condenser from overheating. It also plays an important role with the computer controlled system. An engine temperature sensor actually tells the computer what the engine temperature is so the computer can adjust the air and fuel mixture and engine timing. The efficiency of the radiator directly effects the efficiency of your engine.

That's why flushing the cooling system and pH balancing the coolant is recommended at least once every two years.

Our coolant system power flush continuously forces fluid under pressure through the engine, radiator and heater core in both directions at different times to remove contaminates. We pressure test the cooling system for leaks, clean the recovery bottle and pressure test the radiator cap. The system is then refilled with the proper mix of coolant and water to reach the -35 degrees for winter protection.

Let our certified technicians perform this service today.

Weíre often asked questions about the cooling system Ė the system that cools your engine and keeps it at the proper operating temperature. Letís examine the topic in two areas: first the coolant itself and, second, the parts that make up the cooling system.

 

The coolant in your car or light truck is the mix of water and antifreeze that circulates through the engine to draw off heat. First, you need to have the proper amount. If you donít have enough coolant it canít keep your engine cool.

You also need the right kind of coolant. Different makes of sedans and other vehicles require different coolant formulation to protect against corrosion.

 

 Finally, your coolant needs to be fresh. Over time and miles, the anti-corrosion additives in the coolant are depleted and the coolant can actually start to eat away at the cooling system parts. Your ownerís manual and your Dan's Auto service adviser in Taberg New York can help you with the recommended coolant replacement schedule and make sure youíre getting the right type of coolant.

 

Now letís talk about the cooling system components. These will all eventually wear out and need to be replaced.

 

Starting with the radiator, we see them coming into the shop with leaks or clogged with deposits. Depending on the damage, we will clean, repair or replace. We also see radiator pressure caps that can no longer hold the proper Car overheatpressure. We recommend replacing pressure caps when you change your coolant to avoid this problem.

 

We see leaky water pumps and hoses in the Taberg area that need to be replaced, too. Thereís also a part called the thermostat that opens and closes to regulate the flow of coolant. Sometimes they stick open or closed and the cooling system wonít work properly.

 

Engine damage from overheating can be very expensive to fix so itís important to maintain your cooling system properly with scheduled coolant replacement and periodic inspections of the cooling system. Certainly come in if you suspect a leak and have us take a look.

A Long Lasting Cooling System For Taberg New York Driving

Our vehicles operate in a wide range of outside temperatures in New York. Thatís why vehicle manufacturers use testing grounds from the frozen tundra to the blistering desert. Your engine coolant must be able to perform in these extreme temperatures, even if we donít always get the extremes in Taberg, New York.

Coolant has to move heat away from the engine to prevent costly damage. Water does a very good job of holding heat, but it freezes at thirty two degrees (Fahrenheit).

Thatís why we mix anti-freeze with water Ė it lowers the freezing point of the coolant, and raises the boiling point as well. A fifty/fifty blend of water and antifreeze is the usual recommendation from Danís Auto Service.

And on top of that, coolant has to protect the components of the cooling system from corrosion. Your ownersí manual will tell you what kind of coolant you should use. Of course, your Danís Auto Service service representative in Taberg New York will know what to put in your car.

Coolant system failure is the most common mechanical problem people have. Much of that can be avoided by following factory scheduled service intervals. Check your ownerís manual or with your service advisor at Danís Auto Service for recommendations. We can also conduct a cooling system inspection to look for leaks, weak hoses or bad connections.
