Common Radiator Problems

The radiator is an important part of your cooling system. It contains the coolant you need to help pull heat from the engine. Without it, your engine would overheat and that could lead to warped components or even a fire. Don’t let it get that far. To ensure your radiator is healthy, inspect your vehicle from the outside and look under the hood every now and then. Not sure what signs to look for? Here are a few early warning signs that indicate something is wrong with your radiator:

  • Coolant leaking
  • Overheating
  • Low coolant level
  • Discolored or dirty coolant
  • Clogged radiator
  • Interior heater stops working
  • Visibly damaged radiator
  • Smoke under hood

If your vehicle is displaying any of these signs, or a combination of these symptoms, you need to call Team Automotive immediately. One of our ASE-certified mechanics will diagnose the issue. Expect radiator repair, maintenance or replacement options at a fair price from our friendly, professional and knowledgeable car and truck mechanics.
