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!

Very helpful and friendly, from the mechanics to the office. They are flexible with times and price. My car was having some issues but I could not afford the work on it till the next week. So they allowed me to park my car there until then with no problems. Comfortable feeling environment for sure.

We have used this facility several times since our move to Seattle and have been pleased each time. On this visit, we had some minor pre-trip items for them to address, which they did promptly and at no charge. They advised me on some other issues, and we really trust their judgment. Very pleasant people!

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