radiator service and repair

One of the most common auto breakdowns is from your radiator/cooling system over-heating. Being stranded on the freeway adds to the aggravation. Overheating can cause severe damage to your engine and transmission system.

Young’s Automotive has been performing radiator service and repair throughout Covina and the surrounding communities for over 30 years.

How does it work?

A car’s engine temperature is controlled by circulating engine coolant which picks up heat generated from the engine and carries it to the car’s radiator, where it is cooled and then returned to the car’s engine. Most modern cars use aluminum radiators. These radiators are made by brazing thin aluminum fins to flattened aluminum tubes.

  • Noisy compressor
  • Compressor is shutting off and on
  • Intermittent cooling—temperature fluctuating
  • Coolant/Refrigerant Leaks
  • Odor—a funky smell coming from the system
  • Fan stops working

Some of the components and service or repairs we perform are:

  • A/C System Diagnosis
  • A/C Recharging

Caught early, most auto air conditioning problems are fairly easy and inexpensive to fix.

When do I service my radiator?

Most of us are familiar with changing the oil every 3,000—5,000 miles, but when it comes to our radiator service schedule…time to get out your owner’s manual. The most common suggestion is every 24 months, but each manufacturer has their own guidelines. Visit the Cars We Service page for a list of manufacturers. If your belts or hoses haven’t been replaced in the past 4 years, it’s a good idea to have them inspected.

  • Car Overheats
  • Coolant/Temperature Light Comes On
