Radiator Repair Jonesville, NC

There are several reasons your radiator may need repair that you or your mechanic could identity before a catastrophic failure:

  • Thermostat Failure: Helping regulate your engine temperature, the thermostat tells your radiator what to do. When it fails, the temperature will rise. If your engine temperature rises too high, your radiator will fail.
  • Radiator Leaks: Tiny holes in your radiator that can be caused by something simple as a bouncing rock can cause coolant to leak and your radiator to fail. If your radiator is leaking, have it repaired immediately.
  • Hose leaks: If your radiator hoses are leaking, you will lose fluid and your radiator will eventually fail.
  • Water Pump failure: If your water pump fails, your engine temperature will rise. Replacing the water pump is one expense, but if you keep going, it could lead to your radiator failing as well.
