Radiator Repair

The Orlando weather can get quite warm on occasions. This puts more pressure on a car engine to remain cool. The radiator works overtime, and if the cooling part of the engine has a problem, the car engine can quickly overheat.

If the radiator is unable to perform its duty correctly many problems can occur and boiling-over can be one of the smallest issues. Engine oil can overheat and lose its effectiveness, and over time engine wear can happen.

All of the cooling systems are monitored and controlled by thermostats that operate pumps and valves which all work together to keep the flow of coolant flowing around the engine. A skilled mobile mechanic will explain what can happen if this system breaks down, and a radiator repair might be the least of your problems.

Leaking Radiators in Orlando

On most occasions when a radiator springs a leak, it will be from one of three places. There are the fins that perform the cooling, and these can sometimes get punctured by a stick or a stone. The filler cap can leak if it becomes worn, and at the bottom where the bottom hose connects can corrode on older metal radiators.

A skilled mechanic in Orlando would check these three things because they are in close vicinity of each other. The problem is when the leak is in another area, and it requires some further investigation. Here is a rundown of where other cooling system leaks can occur.

  • Worn water pumps or external leaks
  • Engine block leaks, or head gasket leaks
  • Split or worn hoses
  • Thermostats sticking open, or not opening
  • Faulty temperature sensors
  • Serpentine belt or fan belts being worn or loose
  • Radiator fans broke or the motor damaged

All of these can prevent engine coolant not flowing as it should. In the case of thermostat problems, the engine doesn’t know when it should and shouldn’t be trying to cool itself.
