What does the radiator do? The radiator plays a critical role in the overall operation of the engine. It keeps the engine from overheating. Coolant is circulated through the radiator to the engine where it absorbs the heat and then is returned to the radiator. The radiator cooling fans blow cool air over the radiator to lower the temperature of the coolant then it is returned through the engine to absorb more heat. The radiator has two tanks that are connected by brass tubes. These tanks are usually plastic and its common for it to crack over time causing fluid to leak. Engine overheating can cause serious engine damage. How do you know you need your radiator replaced? Radiator is leaking Engine is overheating How is the radiator replaced by a mobile mechanic?

"I'm a big fan of this incredibly convenient service! GoWrench staff do a great job and respect your time, unlike the nightmare that is involved in visiting the dealership/auto shop just to get your tires rotated or oil change. I shouldn't have to lose a day of work, two times a year, just for regular maintenance & tire swaps -- and with GoWrench, I never have to deal with the patronizing, dirty, and time-consuming service at the car dealership or auto shop, again!"
