Cooling System Repair in Santa Monica
Your vehicle’s cooling system is comprised of components that work together to keep the engine cool and prevent overheating. A problem with any component in this system can cause your engine to overheat rapidly and can lead to corrosion and damage. If you do notice that your vehicle’s engine is overheating, we recommend turning off your vehicle immediately and giving 26th Street Auto Center a call for assistance.
The main components of the cooling system include the radiator, thermostat, water pump, coolant, and various hoses to transport fluids. The radiator dissipates heat, the thermostat helps maintain the proper temperature, the water pump circulates coolant throughout, and coolant works as a lubricant to control temperature.
Symptoms of a cooling system problem include:
• Coolant leak or low coolant
• Engine overheating
• Poor fuel efficiency
• Rough running engine
• Smoke coming from underneath the hood
• White exhaust smoke
If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, stop by our shop today for an inspection. Ignoring any of the signs above can cause the issue to progress and lead to more damage to the engine. Our certified technicians will perform a complete inspection of the cooling system to pinpoint the precise cause of the issue.
