Cooling System Repair in Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, Pacific Palisades, or Brentwood, CA
(Overheating, Coolant Leaks, Radiators)
Your vehicle’s cooling system consists of components that work together to keep the engine cool by circulating coolant which acts as a lubricant and regulates the temperature of the engine. This process helps to prevent the engine from overheating and protects against metal to metal contact. A problem with any component in the cooling system can cause your engine to overheat quickly and can lead to corrosion and damage. If your vehicle’s engine is overheating, we invite you to bring your car into 26th Street Auto Center for an inspection if you’re near Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, Pacific Palisades, or Brentwood, CA. Driving with a failing cooling system can be detrimental to the engine so the sooner you get your vehicle repaired the less damage you’ll need to worry about.
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 and the water pump circulates coolant throughout. These parts can sometimes fail or leak, which can lead to either a complete lack of coolant from being circulated or a decrease in the amount of coolant overall.
