Has your car been overheating? Are you noticing leaks in your radiator hoses? At Grand Prairie City Garage our Grand Prairie ASE Certified Technicians will detect if you have a leaking radiator.

The purpose of an automotive radiator is to cool the engine. At the front of your vehicle you will notice your radiator. Attached to your radiator are two hoses, an upper hose and lower hose. Together these hoses distribute antifreeze through your radiator to make sure your engine is at 190 degrees. The antifreeze prevents water from freezing and has additives to provide lubrication that prevent corrosion.

Your radiator cap controls the amount of antifreeze pushed into your engine. Getting your radiator drained around 60,000 miles is Grand Prairie City Garage’s recommendation. If there are any leaks in your radiator hoses they should be replaced. Before adding any antifreeze the system must be flushed to clean the engine.

Flushing and refilling your radiator every 60,000 miles is Grand Prairie City Garage mechanics advice in order to achieve the 150,000 milestone. During that visit your Grand Prairie ASE Certified Technician will inspect your hoses and belts that are used for the cooling process. Bring your car into Grand Prairie mechanics at Grand Prairie City Garage for a $69 radiator flush and fill.
