Your vehicle’s cooling system consists of hoses, radiator caps, thermostat, water pump and the radiator itself. Problems with your cooling system can cause the car to overheat and thereby cause serious engine damage. So, preventative maintenance will save you money in the long term.
Tip: Never continue to drive your car if your temperature gauge approaches the ¾ level. Turn the engine off & seek assistance or get the car towed. Failure to do so will usually result in serious engine damage and sometimes the problem can be as little as a $20 cooling hose which needs to be replaced.
If you notice any irregularities connected with the cooling system, call one of our three workshops in Melbourne. We can help you with radiator repairs, water pump repairs and the full cooling system repairs.
In our car service, we check all Cooling system components including:
- Radiator condition
- Coolant condition
- Cooling hoses condition
- Water Pump operation

We use a pressure tester to test the Cooling System for leaks.
