Automotive Cooling System Repair Service | Plainfield Naperville Bolingbrook
Is your vehicle over heating? Does your automobile run hotter than it use to?
Over at Last Chance Auto Repair For Cars Trucks we want you to know the importance of your cooling system. How it plays a critical role in the operation of your vehicle by transferring heat from engine to air around your vehicle. Otherwise your engine would overheat plus many of the moving parts could seize together. The engine runs optimally within a certain temperature range plus the cooling system needs to keep the engine within that range. That is where knowing proper cooling system maintenance helps save you money in the long run. The primary components in a vehicle cooling system are one radiator, thermostat & housing, water pump, cooling fan, radiator hoses plus heater hoses. Secondly but just as important heater tank, reservoir plus radiator cap. Always check your auto coolant level periodically and safely!

Auto Cooling System Repairs Plainfield Naperville Bolingbrook Illinois
You ever seen the inside of an aluminum engine water pump that was not adequately protected by the corrosion inhibitors in the coolant? Or a radiator or heater core that failed from the inside out because of internal corrosion? These kinds of auto part failures are all too common. Yet they can be easily be prevented by using the “right” coolant and changing the coolant before trouble starts to heat up. As they say follow the maintenance schedule. Doing something early is better than on time or late. We don’t think your auto requires a fashionably late maintenance.
Coolant – The main purpose of auto coolant is to carry heat to the radiator, prevent freezing and protect against internal corrosion. There are three types of auto coolant. Ethylene Glycol is your conventional green formulation, Dexcool red orange is an oat based antifreeze, Hybrid Oat known as Hoat or G-05 antifreeze. Hybrid Oat coolants add a small dose of silicates to provide added protection for aluminum. All coolants require maintenance changing also knows as a flush. Coolants get changed out at 5 years or 100,000 to 150,000 miles, which ever comes first.
Water Pump – The water pump plays a major role in your automobiles cooling system. It causes your water (coolant) to circulate, which in hand cools any components that require a cooling process. Most water pumps are mounted on your engine and are driven by a fan belt, alternator belt or overhead cam timing belt. Hence the importance of changing your belts according to your maintenance schedule. Most automobile water pump failures are usually caused by a bearing failure on the pump shaft accompanied by a water leak.
