Why Your Car May Need Radiator Repair or Replacement

Why Your Car May Need Radiator Repair or Replacement

Drivers may need radiator repair or replacement due to a variety of factors, including age, normal wear and tear, and physical damage.

Your car’s radiator is a vital component that keeps the engine at a safe operating temperature. In movies, cars are often shown broken down on the side of the road with white steam billowing out from the hood, indicating an overheating engine. While radiator problems do not always manifest in such a dramatic fashion, putting off radiator repair can result in a slew of serious issues. Drivers may need radiator repair or replacement due to a variety of factors, including age, normal wear and tear, and physical damage. The team at Auto Stop Limited, Inc. is proud to offer radiator repair and other services to Baltimore’s drivers.

Aging Vehicles Often Require Radiator Repair or Replacement

The passage of time can cause radiators to malfunction. Many types of metal sustain minuscule cracks and pinholes over time as the metal oxidizes, and radiators are not immune to this process. Metal fatigue and oxidation can lead to pinholes and cracks throughout an engine’s cooling system, and drivers will need to seek radiator repair or replacement to prevent these flaws from worsening and becoming dangerous. While radiator repair may be sufficient, replacement may be necessary to avoid future problems. In radiators that function poorly due to internal clogs, the use of stop leak products can eventually result in the need for an entirely new radiator.

Car Accidents Can Result in the Need for Radiator Repair

Another common cause of radiator problems is physical damage sustained from a car accident. Collisions that occur at the front end of a vehicle can cause physical damage to a car’s radiator or the surrounding components. Cars with older radiators can sustain damage from a slight impact, while cars with newer radiators may not experience such issues.
