Radiator Service and More in Hamilton

Maintenance Tips

By performing regular checks you can prevent problems with car and truck radiators in Hamilton that could leave your vehicle broken down on the side of the road, costing you money in emergency repairs and replacements and, more importantly, the time and safety of your passengers.

Drivers should have a cooling system maintenance check at least once every 2 years. This regular radiator service can greatly reduce problems with you vehicle.

We recommend these preventive maintenance procedures from our shop in Hamilton:

  • A test of your vehicle's radiator pressure cap to check for the recommended system pressure level
  • Checking your vehicle's thermostat for proper opening and closing
  • A pressure test to identify any external leaks to the cooling system parts. This includes the radiator, water pump and engine coolant passages
  • A visual inspection of your vehicle's cooling system components. This includes belts and hoses, as well as a system power flush and refill using the manufacturer's recommended coolant concentration
  • Testing your vehicle's engine fan for proper operation

Radiator Terms

Below are some common terms we use when discussing your radiator maintenance and service at The Rad Shop in Hamilton.

Flush & Repair

Your vehicle's radiator is removed and cleaned externally using a power spray gun, followed by an internal flush. Following that, we pressure test, inspect and repair the radiator as needed.

Clean & Repair

Using a specially formulated cleaner, we clean and internally flush the radiator after removing it from the vehicle. The radiator is then flushed, pressure tested, inspected and repaired as needed.

Recore

If the vehicle's radiator core has been damaged beyond repair or is too weak to work under normal operating conditions, a new core will have to be installed.
