Cooling Systems

Your vehicle’s cooling system is critical for overall auto health, yes. But it’s especially important for the engine’s health! Keeping the engine cool, flowing and smooth is where this system comes into play.

Here’s a short list of the types of parts that are involved in this important system:

Belts

Coolant flanges

Coolant leaks

Cooling fans

Cooling system flushes

Heater cores

Hoses

Hybrid system cooling system flushes

Radiators

Temperature sensor

Thermostats

Water pumps

As a reminder, if your engine light comes on, please, please, please, stop driving your car, truck, SUV or hybrid. It really IS that important.

When should you have your cooling system looked at?
Well, it’ll get looked at at your major maintenance appointments (30k, 60k, 90k, or 120k mile services), but if you suspect the engine is getting too hot, your radiator is steaming or seemingly smoking, or you can’t recall when your cooling system was last flushed, or when your water pump was last looked at, it might be a good time to take a look at the cooling system.

Coolant Leak

This is a video of a coolant leak in a BMW 328i. If your vehicle looks like it has a water fountain in the engine it’s not normal and you shouldn’t drive it!

I have been going to Tom’s for a while now to have my 2006 Scion worked on. They do quality work and at a good price. Very professional and honest, great staff to work with. I am saddened that I am moving down to Arizona at the end of the month and will no longer be able to have my car serviced at Tom’s. I hope I can find a new one like them down there. Thanks for all your services over the years. Jeff

Great customer service, totally went the extra mile in terms of COVID awareness as the car was sanitized prior to it getting returned to us. Super communicative and helpful in terms of current and future maintenance. Also very friendly. Will be back-

The A/C on my CR-V stopped working. I was able to take my car in the same day I called and they diagnosed the problem within about 10 minutes. Called me later the same day to give me the cost estimate. Very helpful and understanding that the repair was expensive and that I was considering whether or not to have the work done.

This car came in low on coolant. During our testing we found the overflow bottle had a pretty bad leak. Check out the video!
