Cooling System Repair Vancouver & Surrounding Areas

Your car’s cooling system helps keep your engine at optimum operating temperatures. Engines produce a considerable amount of heat which could warp or damage various components and systems – damage that results in very expensive repairs. If your engine is too cold, its components will wear out more quickly and it will tend to emit more pollutants. Your cooling system ensures that the engine heats quickly and then remains at a steady temperature thereafter for efficient performance. The cooling system’s primary objective, however, is to provide protection against engine overheating. Car engines produce a lot of heat, and the cooling system dissipates that heat into the air in order to keep your engine at a constant and optimal temperature.

Check Your Antifreeze & Radiator: Maintenance & Service

Regular maintenance of your radiator and antifreeze is a small investment that prevents major repairs. Your radiator should be cleaned of the deposits that may build up inside since these deposits can clog the hoses and other components of the cooling system and cause your engine to overheat. Engine antifreeze/coolant may also degrade due to high operating temperatures, becoming corrosive and lead to failure of hoses, thermostats, radiators, water pumps, and heater cores. Loss of antifreeze/coolant can cause engine overheating, and hence engine failure. Insufficient antifreeze strength can result in freezing ruptures and hard starting problems in the winter. Your Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centre mechanic will ensure that all components of your cooling system are clean and working correctly.

If your dashboard gauge shows your engine temperature running higher than normal or if you find puddles of antifreeze under your car, it’s time to visit Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres for cooling system repair at our Vancouver, BC, or Alberta-area garages. Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centre technicians are trained to inspect engine antifreeze/coolant quality and to diagnose any leaks and associated potential problems. Drive in to your nearest Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centre location for preventive maintenance, repairs and replacements of engine antifreeze/coolant and cooling system components.
