Do You Offer Radiator Inspections?
Before providing rebuilding and repairing work on your radiator, many mechanics can take a look at your radiator, heating elements and transmission, troubleshoot the issue, then give you a verbal or written estimate of the financial cost to you. This allows you to shop around for the best rate before committing to a rebuild. You may find that it will cost too much to rebuild or repair it and you may want to replace the whole thing.
Do You Provide Radiator Repair Kits?
If you’re handy in the automotive field, you may want to take on a repair job yourself. For this, look for radiator repair kits, which you can find online and within home improvement stores or automotive supply shops. In the kits, you’ll find a type of resin designed to harden quickly after you have filled in any cracks in the hose or compressor. This fix-it move could save you a few bucks over the alternative.
Do You Offer Radiator Maintenance and Cleaning?
Regular cleaning and overall maintenance of radiators is a wise idea, in order to keep your radiator and related systems working properly. This may help avoid a clog or other problem later on. Look to your mechanic to provide this service. Your mechanic will remove the radiator cap, open the petcock and drain plug, refill with radiator fluid, add antifreeze, then flush the whole system out.
