Having radiator problems? Need radiator repair, replacement or service? Your search has come to an end. We are your local radiator expert, and we cover domestic and foreign radiators from A to Z.

Your vehicle's radiator is an important component of the cooling system and is made up of thin-walled tubes, metal fins and a metal or plastic casing. They are found on most vehicles on the road today and are used to cool and circulate water. The radiator functions as a heat exchanger. Its purpose is to transfer heat from the hot coolant flowing through it to the air blown by the cooling fan. Is your car overheating? Call L&D Auto Specialists, the radiator specialist. We've got you covered.

Radiator Repair Near Me

Radiators are typically made from a combination of materials such as plastic, copper and aluminum. The radiator in your vehicle is used to keep the engine cool. As a result, it is critical that your radiator is functioning properly. Radiators wear out in one way or another over time. However, the better you take care of them, the longer they will last. Therefore, maintenance of the cooling system (radiator included) is necessary. We commonly talk about a radiator flush and/or an engine coolant drain and fill service.

There are numerous reasons why a radiator may fail or stop working properly. Regardless of whether you are having radiator problems or if it is not functioning properly, you need to have it treated, serviced and fixed by a professional, such as the professionals at L&D Auto Specialists, as soon as possible.

Common Radiator/Cooling System Problems

  • A broken thermostat. When it comes to vehicles that overheat, the most common cause we see in our shop is a faulty thermostat. Thermostats are not part of the radiator, but they are an important part of the cooling system. It is a type of valve that regulates the amount of coolant going in and out of your vehicle's radiator. This, in turn, helps maintain optimum engine operating temperature. Is it time to replace the thermostat?
  • Radiator hose leak(s) Have you noticed any coolant leaking from your car? Is it the radiator or radiator hoses that are leaking the most? You're wrong if you guessed the radiator. Surprisingly, the most common leak we see in these two cooling system components is not the radiator, but the radiator hoses. The hoses connect the radiator and the engine, allowing coolant to flow between the two. Radiator hoses are considered wear parts in the service industry, which means they must be replaced regularly as preventive maintenance.
  • The cooling system contains air.
  • The radiator has a leak.
  • The water pump has failed.
  • Restriction in cooling system.
  • Faulty radiator fan.

L&D Auto Specialists is an expert in radiator installation, replacement and repair. So you could say that L&D Auto Specialists handles radiator services from start to finish. Proper radiator maintenance is critical to keeping your car's engine running at peak performance and avoiding costly engine damage caused by an overheating problem.
