Cooling System Servicing and Drive In/ Drive Out Service
Having specialized in automotive cooling systems since 1923, we can solve all of your vehicles issues in house to minimize inconvenience and the cost of using outside specialists From replacing a hose clamp on a leaking coolant line to building a custom radiator and high performance fans, we do it all in our well-equipped workshop in the heart of Hamilton.
Antifreeze or coolant has two main functions, it stops the fluid in the cooling system from freezing in cold conditions and raises the boiling point in hot ones. It also has corrosion inhibitors to stop the cooling system corroding and leaking.
Not all coolants are compatible for if you mechanic offers to do a coolant change beware. If different types of coolant are mixed it can cause chemical corrosion and destroy your radiators heater and even engine block, sometimes in a matter of months.
The only way to change coolant properly, if you don’t know exactly what is currently in the system is to thoroughly flush all the old coolant and contamination from the system, including all bypass lines, radiator heater and block. Then refill the system with the correct amount of coolant and bleed all of the air out of the system.
If your coolant hasn’t been changed lately or is discoloured, come and see us for a professional service backed by over 90 years of expertise.
Gone are the days of winding down the car window and driving faster to cool the inside your vehicle down. Most automotive manufacturers have offered air-conditioning as an option since the late 1970’s and is standard since the starts of the 1990’s. The air conditioning system of your vehicle has two important functions. The first of these is to keep you cool in hot conditions, increasing your comfort and lessening driver fatigue. The second but lesser thought of function is the air conditioning system actually dries the air inside your vehicle to demist and help keep your windows clear to improve driving safety and visibility.
