With cooler days approaching fast, make sure your radiator is working properly.
[space_20] Thermostats need to be replaced along with a coolant flush or water pump replacement. The thermostat controls the temperature of the coolant by opening and closing allowing the engine not to overheat. [space_20] Water pumps can also leak due to age, or dirty, nasty coolant flowing from them. [space_20] Radiator hoses, bypass hoses and heater hoses, should all be checked for corrosion, and deterioration, so they won’t burst on you this winter. They should be replaced every 30,000 miles. [space_20] Coolant temperature sensors should also be replaced. [space_20] Don’t let your vehicle let you down, this winter, now is the time to check, flush your heating system, or replace necessary parts, so they won’t cause you a problem with cooler weather ahead.
