Radiator Repairs

Work With the Specialists in Radiator Repairs


Whoever coined the phrase “a little heat never hurt anybody” clearly never had their radiator break on them. Whilst the term car radiator certainly comes up a lot, it’s easy to forget just how essential they are to our vehicles, and how quickly things can go downhill when they start to show signs of wear and tear. At SSC Mechanics, we understand how necessary it is to be able to trust your car, which is why we are dedicated to maintaining an exceptionally high level of service across each and every vehicle that comes through our doors.

So, what do you have to look forward to with your radiator repair, and why is it always important to know where you can get a car radiator repaired near you?

What Does a Car Radiator Do?

Put simply, your car produces a lot of heat. Because of this, a number of cooling systems are put in place to ensure that your vehicle doesn’t overheat and break down. Your radiator is essentially the overarching cooling system for your engine, detecting when the thermostat reaches a certain temperature before releasing coolant and water through the system to absorb that heat before it becomes a problem. When this system isn’t working as intended, you can likely imagine how many issues can arise before you decide to get radiator repairs.

How Do I Know if I Need Radiator Repairs?

Whilst your radiator repairs should be part of your regular car maintenance checkups, it’s important to understand the signs of something going wrong. This is especially important for older cars, so if you have a vintage vehicle, it’s best to know the closest provider of classic car radiator repairs near you.

Signs that you’re in need of radiator repairs include:

  • Your Vehicle is Overheating – This is one of the more obvious ones, but if you find that your car is overheating during standard use, it’s likely a sign that you should get your radiator checked on for damages or faults.
  • You’re Noticing Leaks – As mentioned earlier, the radiator releases coolant to absorb the heat of the engine. So, if you’re noticing coolant leakage from your vehicle, it’s a sign that something has been damaged, and you’re unlikely to have a functioning cooling system.
  • Sludge in the Radiator – Over time, contaminants can build up in your coolant, leading to discoloured sludge. This will need to be removed, and a new coolant will need to be added to ensure that your system can work as intended.

With all this in mind, it’s always best to check on your various car components before issues arise. So, when you come in for your regular vehicle checkups and tuning, your radiator should be on the list of things to look out for.
