Have you ever seen one of those unfortunate people on the side of the road, fanning steam out of their face as they open the hood of their car? That is the stereotypical image of someone who is dealing with a radiator issue. The radiator is a very important part of any vehicle. It is responsible for pumping water and antifreeze through the engine block to absorb excess heat and prevent your engine from overheating. After the coolant mixture has been pumped through the engine, it returns to the radiator, where it is cooled off by a fan and by the air that moves over the grill of your car while you drive. If your radiator is working like it should, the engine coolant cools down enough in the radiator to be pumped back through the engine, repeating the cycle. If your radiator is clogged, contains no coolant or has a cracked or leaking hose, then no coolant mixture will reach your engine. This can result in rapid engine overheating, and if your engine is allowed to get hot enough, it can result in total engine failure as well. Needless to say, repairing an issue with your radiator or radiator hoses is a lot more affordable than dealing with an engine problem. At K&M Auto Service in Portland, we know exactly where and what to look for when determining if your radiator is damaged or in need of repair. We can replace leaky radiator hoses, fix radiator leaks, repair broken fans and perform complete radiator flushes. Basically, if there is an issue with your radiator, we will find it and get it back to full functionality as quickly as we can.
