Should You Repair or Replace Your Auto Radiator?

Preventative car maintenance and taking proper care of your auto radiator will prolong its life.

As you use your car, your radiator will take some damage. An auto radiator will probably need to be repaired at least once in your car’s lifetime. However, preventative car maintenance and taking proper care of your auto radiator will prolong its life. 

What Causes the Need For An Auto Radiator Repair?

One of the main causes for an auto radiator repair, and other auto parts, is corrosion. Auto radiators are made of metal that can bend, create pinholes, and other dents over time. Metal oxidation from heating and cooling over time will also cause damage like cracks and pits. These holes that develop over time can lead to low coolant levels, dramatically ruining your radiator’s functioning. Corrosion is not the only issue that affects the car radiator. Front-end damage also harms your car’s radiator. Unfortunately, radiators can become clogged with random debris from your car engine, like material from DIY leak stoppages, decaying hoses, and other things can harm your radiator’s ability to function. It is possible to repair most damage on a car’s radiator with an experienced mechanic. However, sometimes the damage is too extensive. 

There is a Good Chance You Will Need an Auto Radiator Replacement

It may seem intimidating to replace parts of your car, but it is necessary to keep the rest of your car running smoothly. Occasionally, if certain parts of your car’s engine are left patched but not completely fixed, they may come apart and cause damage to other parts of your car. Replacing your radiator is necessary when damage is too extensive. Replacing your car’s radiator can also greatly extend your car’s life. The replacement radiator does not have to be brand new, but a used radiator in good condition.
