The hot summer heat is never easy on a vehicle and can lead to overheating and damage to your radiator and engine if not taken care of properly.

Your vehicles cooling system is what keeps your engine at the proper temperature. If the engine is too cold, it emits more pollutants and engine components can wear out quicker. If the engine is too hot, it can cause serious damage, or even stop working completely.

Visit Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center today for your FREE COOLING SYSTEM INSPECTION before the heat wave hits ($27 Value). Offer ends July 31, 2014.

At Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center, one of our ASE certified technicians can thoroughly inspect your cooling system for any malfunctions. If any parts are worn out or need replacement, our technicians can quickly and efficiently take care of that for you.

Description of Cooling System

The cooling system primarily consists of:

  • Cooling Fan
  • Water Pump
  • Thermostat
  • Radiator
  • Heater Core
  • Heater Valve

and various other parts that primarily work together to dissipate and remove heat from a vehicle’s engine.

The antifreeze is also responsible for keeping other engine fluids from boiling or freezing. After the antifreeze flows through the engine, it cycles back to the radiator, where the excess heat escapes through the radiator’s walls. The antifreeze is cooled by the cooling fan and readied to be re-released into the engine to dissipate additional heat.

Benefits of Cooling System Repair

Over time, antifreeze breaks down and loses its efficiency. If not drained and replaced, old antifreeze can lead to corrosion.

During a cooling system flush and fill, our staff will drain the antifreeze from the radiator, flush the cooling system, and fill the radiator with  new antifreeze.

Proper cooling system maintenance will help keep your vehicle running cool all Summer long.

Cooling System Inspection Includes: 

During an inspection of the cooling system service, our experts will check the cooling fan for damage and the fan belt for cracks. Because the radiator is responsible for cooling the antifreeze as it circulates throughout the cooling system, a leak or a broken radiator hose can lead to major engine failure.

A radiator pressure test is one way we can check for potential leaks or radiator damage.

Ultimately, neglecting basic cooling system and radiator maintenance can lead to a potential radiator replacement and major engine or radiator repairs down the road.
