If your car runs hot, you may need to have your cooling system serviced. The most important and effective way to ensure your cooling system stays in top shape is to make sure the system is clean. Here at Durham's Automotive, we can clean your cooling system to help it run cool.
Over time, your vehicle’s radiator can build solid deposits which can result in clogged pipes and lines within the cooling system. A quick radiator flush at Durham's Automotive can solve this problem and keep your cooling system in shape.
Another component within your cooling system is antifreeze. It is important to remember to change your antifreeze seasonally. The experts at Durham's Automotive can help you change your antifreeze to ensure your vehicle’s system does not freeze up with cold weather strikes.
If a problem with your cooling system extends beyond a simple flush or replacement, our team can diagnose the problem. We can perform a pressure test to determine if your radiator’s pressure is correct. If the pressure test determines that it is not correct, we will check your cooling system’s caps, hoses and connections to determine if any of these components need to be replaced or repaired. If we determine that they do need to be replaced or repaired, we can give you a fair, honest quote on parts and labor.
From simple pressure tests to full radiator replacements, you can trust the team at Durham's Automotive for excellent cooling system service.
