Keeping Your Car’s Heat Inside the Engine Cooling System
When you call us requesting a cooling system repair you most likely know your vehicle has problem. Good for you! Being proactive with cooling system issues is smart because postponing action can lead to a need for major engine repairs, the most common of which is engine cylinder head or gasket damage. The cost to fix a failure like this could easily reach the $2000 mark. That’s why extra effort to monitor your cooling system can pay off big.
That low level in the coolant reservoir or the small puddle of coolant you see on the ground could signal a radiator leak or water pump leak on your GM or Mazda SUV. It could quickly transform into a major engine repair expense. Letting it go on too long could risk an overheat situation and potentially damage to your automatic transmission. That excess heat can reduce the transmission oils ability to lubricate and cause premature transmission failure.
Another symptom you may notice with a cooling system problem is a gurgling sound from under the dash, your heater intermittently not blowing hot air, or a cooling fan that runs longer than normal. Of course, the most important indicator is that your dash temperature gauge is running higher than normal.
