The job of your radiator is to keep coolant flowing throughout your engine. If there’s a block or a leak, your engine can quickly overheat and your vehicle will break down.
Coolant leaks are caused by cracked or ill-fitting hoses or a hole in the radiator itself. Radiator metal is thin and easily damaged, but the number one cause of coolant leaks is corrosion. The number one cause of corrosion is a lack of preventive maintenance.
We recommend having your coolant system professionally inspected at least once a year.
A flush and fill is a critical part of preventive maintenance. Antifreeze (coolant) is very caustic. Left in the radiator for too long, it will begin to corrode the metal, and cause a potentially disastrous leak.
