Your vehicle’s radiator can go south for a number of reasons: brittle hoses, damaged water pump; weakened solders; leaky fittings; malfunctioning thermostat; rusting, and more.
Without a well-functioning radiator, your engine can’t survive the super-heated environment that is caused by liquids that course through it as a result of the friction that is produced when so many moving parts rub against each other. That’s why it’s crucial to keep your radiator in good working condition.
The older the radiator, the more likely it is to begin to experience problems. Vehicles older than five years are the ones we see coming in most often for radiator work. When radiator symptoms are spotted and reported we carefully scrutinize the entire system to find whatever is amiss: old hoses, restricted water flow, leaks, fitting failures, crack in plastic tanks, etc.
