Cooling Systems Repair & Services
Without a way to cool off your engine, your vehicle wouldn’t be able to perform properly. By itself, an engine would become too hot and wouldn’t function due to the extreme heat it produces.
Antifreeze is combined half and half with water and flows through your radiator and engine to help keep everything at the right temperature. However, like all liquids, antifreeze will eventually break down. This is why Silvhorn recommends you change your antifreeze every two years or 26,000 kilometres. This is often called a flush and fill.
Your cooling fan is responsible for pumping air throughout the radiator so it can release hot engine heat into the surrounding air. If your fan ever malfunctions or stops, your engine can quickly overheat, resulting in serious engine problems. At Silvhorn Automotive, we inspect your cooling fan to make sure the drive belt or fan belt is working properly and isn’t loose or cracked.
The pressure cap also known as the radiator cap is located on the radiator or coolant reservoir. Your pressure cap should be checked at least once a year for cracks and should be performed by a trained mechanic.
The coolant reservoir checks the levels of coolant in the system. This should be checked every time you come in for an oil change.
Your thermostat is a gauge that regulates the flow of coolant due to coolant temperature. A thermostat that doesn’t work properly can result in your engine overheating without you realizing it.
