Honda Radiator Service

What Is Involved with Repairing or Replacing a Radiator

Although your car's radiator is designed to withstand the rigors of the road, there can be situations in which a small hole develops and the engine coolant can escape. The cooling system is an integral aspect of the engine's performance, as without cooling being available the engine will overheat, essentially cooking the oil that is used for lubrication of moving parts. Without such lubricant, the parts will seize and the engine won't run.

When and Why Radiator Repair Must Happen

If the coolant is leaking, a thorough inspection is required to determine if perhaps the radiator cap simply needs to be replaced, if a hose is broken, if there is a single hole in the radiator or multiples points of damage. A single hole might be patched with solder, depending on the size and location of the hole. If there are multiple holes or if the radiator has already been patched before, it's probably just time to replace the radiator and prevent the problem from occurring again and potentially leaving you stranded with a breakdown.

The Consequences of Not Having a Damaged Radiator Repaired

The fact is, it's nearly impossible to predict when a radiator repair might be needed. Some cars can go their entire life and never have a problem, while others seem to have bad luck with the radiator. Much the same as most other repairs, it depends on the driving style used along with local conditions under which the car is driven. The worst consequence of not having a radiator repaired in a timely fashion is that of breaking down on the side of the road. The vehicle may be able to have coolant added as a roadside repair or might need a tow. Either way, outside of the inconvenience it's never a safe situation to break down in traffic.

Using an Authorized Dealership

For a radiator repair or any other maintenance your car might need, it's important to consider a licensed and authorized car dealer's technician staff such as provided by Rolling Hills Honda in St. Joseph, MO, and serving the surrounding areas of Savannah and Elwood. A dealership has trained technicians who understand the needs of specific makes and models of cars, and use only the appropriate parts as recommended by the manufacturer the performance and life of your vehicle.
