The cooling system in your vehicle has a very important job - it helps to regulate heat generated from the engine by circulating coolant. Coolant has heat absorbing properties and also helps to keep your engine clean and prevent metal to metal contact between moving parts. The engine is a vital component when it comes to your vehicle’s operation, and a faulty cooling system can lead to engine overheating, damage, corrosion, and other costly repairs.
As soon as you suspect that you have a cooling system issue or you notice that your engine is constantly overheating, bring your vehicle into our professionals. At Coventry Motors in Huntington Station, our ASE certified technicians are experienced and trained to work on cooling systems on all makes and models of vehicles. You can trust that our mechanics will pinpoint the issue quickly and get you back on the road with a reliable vehicle in a timely manner.
A cooling system problem left unnoticed can be a silent killer of your engine. This is why we recommend that your engine and cooling system parts are inspected once a year at the least. During this inspection, we will check all components of your cooling system, fluid levels, inspect for leaks, and look over the engine for signs of damage or corrosion. If necessary, our mechanics will perform a cooling system flush and fill to replace oil fluid and clean vital components to keep fresh, clean coolant running through your vehicle.
The most common issues that can occur with the cooling system are a blown head gasket or a radiator leak. A blown head gasket will cause coolant to leak from below the exhaust manifold, which leads to low coolant. The radiator can also leak or overheat, which can cause low coolant or an issue with coolant circulation.
Other cooling system issues include a bad water pump, faulty cooling fan, a broken fan belt, bad thermostat or a clogged radiator. In order to determine if any of these issues are the cause of your overheating, our mechanics will perform a cooling system pressure test which will help simulate the engine getting hot and allow us to determine the problem.
