Radiator & Cooling Systems Service & Repair

Your vehicle’s radiator and cooling system serve to keep your car’s engine temperature within working limits. A normal engine can produce combustion temperatures in excess of 1,000° C. That’s a lot of heat to deal with. If your engine is running hotter than normal, or you find antifreeze (coolant) pooled under your vehicle, it’s probably time to stop by Cowichan Auto Repair and let one of our highly qualified mechanics take a look.

Without a properly functioning cooling system, heat levels produced by your car’s engine are great enough to damage components within the engine itself. The head gasket can blow or an aluminum head can warp. The engines itself can seize. All of these are big ticket repairs that can usually be avoided with regular cooling system maintenance.
