Comprehensive Cooling System Repair Assessment
The radiator is the center of your cars cooling system. Responsible for reducing the heat generated in the coolant circulating through your cars cooling system, the radiator has to be clean and flow free, full of coolant and clear of blockages. Coolant which isn’t drained and refilled becomes stagnate and contaminated over time and can corrode the internal components of your cooling system. This corrosion leads to the structural break-down of hoses, gaskets and straps. Contaminated coolant may also result in premature water pump collapse caused by deteriorated seals. This usually means the leaky gasket or hose which you repair today may be the weakest of several weak points on your cooling system. Repairing these one-off leaks could only be a brief term remedy for a far bigger issue. The fantastic news is that these issues can be prevented by performing coolant flushes at the intervals recommended by your car’s manufacturer. At KD Automotive in Redmond, our mechanics are trained to identify and treat problematic issues and prevent corrosion of the system parts.
