Radiator Repairs for when your car is not as cool as it should be!

Read customer reviews

Your engine can’t handle getting a little heated under the hood! A working car radiator often means the difference between an uneventful commute and being another vehicle parked on the side of the road, waiting for roadside assistance under a haze of engine smoke.

While we’re always here to help with simple and complex radiator repairs, preventing a breakdown with a radiator service and check will save you time, stress and money down the road. Why? Radiator issues become whole car issues if left alone, as regular exposure to the hot zone can dangerously impact your engine block and trigger a chain reaction of malfunctions across a range of systems.

Managing your radiator replacement cost

When calculating your radiator repairs cost, the final number depends on the make and model of your car, in addition to its body type (4WD, SUV, passenger car or light commercial vehicle) and the extent of the damage done by your malfunctioning radiator.

Sometimes, we aren’t able to assess your engine without first fixing initial leaks and little issues first, meaning early quotes can be difficult to accurately issue. Despite this limitation, you will be kept in the loop every step of the way. mycar prides itself on being transparent about price, so once we’ve made our diagnosis, you’ll receive a detailed quote, highlighting what repairs are necessary and the price of any replacement parts.

When do you need to book a radiator repair?

Radiators can be temperamental. Before you get steamed off with the weird bubbles and squeaks coming from your radiator, check the following list of complaints and issues.

  • Your car is overheating
  • Low Coolant levels
  • Coolant Leak
  • Your coolant is discoloured – if it turns a rusty or oil colour it is a sign of contaminant build up

If you are experiencing one or more of these, it is important to get your car in to be checked.

What is a radiator?

The radiator is an important part of an engines cooling system. The radiator is a heat exchanger used to transfer thermal energy from one medium to another. Vehicle radiators are constructed of a pair of metal or plastic header tanks, linked by a core with many narrow passageways, giving a high surface area relative to volume. This core is usually made of stacked layers of metal sheet, pressed to form channels and soldered or brazed together. Modern radiators have aluminium cores, and often save money and weight by using plastic headers with gaskets.

How does a radiator work?

Your car engine creates a lot of heat when working, the cooling system pumps coolant through the engine to prevent overheating. The radiator transfers the heat from the fluid inside to the air outside, thereby cooling the fluid, which in turn cools the engine. Radiators are also often used to cool automatic transmission fluids, air conditioner refrigerant, intake air, and sometimes to cool motor oil or power steering fluid. Radiators are typically mounted in a position where they receive airflow from the forward movement of the vehicle, such as behind a front grill.  If your radiator is malfunctioning this can cause the engine to overheat which can cause major damage to your car.
