Cooling System Service

Your vehicle’s cooling system is a vital component for maintaining the health of your engine. Overheated parts can cause damages, including total engine failure which can lead to costly repairs.

Don’t Ignore the Symptoms

Pay close to attention when your temperature gauge reads hotter than usual temperatures. Whether it heats up quickly after starting your car, or gradually climbs as you drive. These are warnings that your engine’s temperature is not being regulated properly.

You may also notice a maple syrup like smell, and/or notice orange or green fluid accumulating beneath your vehicle.

Cooling System Maintenance

Maintaining the levels of your cooling fluid is an important part of the overall maintenance of your vehicle. However sometimes minor damages can occur in the system preventing the fluid from reaching all the areas it is supposed to. Overheating can damage your gaskets, heads, or even cause total engine failure if not avoided in time. So regularly checking your fluid levels and keeping an eye out for the symptoms of cooling system issues can help prevent costly problems down the road.
