You probably are not aware of the massive amount of heat your vehicle’s engine produces while traveling. Friction, moving parts, exhaust gases and even the temperature outside can make your car work under extremely hot conditions. Thus, it is important to keep your radiator and cooling system in top condition to prevent a catastrophic engine failure.
At Advanced Automotive / Advanced Automotive Consultants, we understand the importance of having a well functioning cooling system. Your radiator and cooling system keep the heat from increasing to harmful levels. There are even some engine parts that cannot handle the excess heat and will fail if they become overheated. Your cooling system dissipates the heat through a system of hoses and the radiator to keep the heat manageable. With computerized systems onboard your vehicle, it is important to protect the multiple sensors, wires and plastic components from excess heat.
Contrary to widespread belief, the cooling system does not consist solely of your radiator. The key parts of your car’s cooling system include: the radiator, radiator cap, radiator hoses, radiator fan, fan clutch, water pump, thermostat, anti-freeze, fan belts, serpentine belt, heater core, temperature sensor, heater hoses and the cooling sensor. You will find that some vehicles have more sensors and computerized components, but the items listed above are standard for every vehicle. With several parts playing a crucial role in the cooling system, it is important to make sure each, individual part is functioning properly.
Advanced Automotive / Advanced Automotive Consultants and our team of expert, certified technicians can evaluate your car’s cooling system and determine if any components are in need of repair, replacement or service. Advanced Automotive / Advanced Automotive Consultants follows the manufacturers recommended settings on anti-freeze and fluid replacement. Our shop recommends that you go ahead and get a full system cleaning and flush when it is time to replace your anti-freeze. A cooling system flush includes a full inspection, full sealant and lubricant added to the system, cleaning additives to remove sediments or other harmful particles and a full pressure test for leaks.
Advanced Automotive / Advanced Automotive Consultants will also make sure the proper anti-freeze for your vehicle is added to the proper level.
