Cooling Systems Tempe and Scottsdale AZ
The cooling system, as you might presume, cools your engine and keeps it at the proper operating temperature. The coolant in your car is a mix of water and antifreeze circulating through the engine to draw off heat. For your cooling system to work correctly, it needs to have the right kind of coolant and the proper amount. Different makes of cars require different coolant formulations to protect against corrosion — and corrosion can be very damaging to your engine.
Your coolant needs to be fresh to work properly. Over time and miles, the anti-corrosion and antifreeze additives in the coolant are depleted, which can cause the coolant to actually start eating away at the cooling system. Cooling system failures can occur in radiators, radiator pressure caps, water pumps, radiator hoses, thermostats, cooling fans and more.
According to AAA, cooling system failures are one of the leading causes of vehicle breakdowns on the highway. That’s especially true here in Tempe, Scottsdale, and Phoenix, where we experience severely high temperatures throughout the summer. However, most of these breakdowns can be prevented through preventative maintenance and repairs we provide at We-Fix-It Auto Repair. Our service includes:
