Radiator Service Mountain View, CA

Your car gets incredibly hot through engine operation. Engine internals can reach temperatures over 4000 degrees Fahrenheit. Without a proper way to cool the engine, it would very quickly lead to serious issues. That is why your car has implemented a cooling system using a radiator.

These systems do wear out over time and need to replaced. Anything from your water pump to your radiator to a radiator hose could lead to improper cooling. No matter what the issue might be, our skilled technicians here at A-1 Auto Tech, Inc., the best radiator repair shop in the business, can help.

Radiator Replacement

The most widely known part of your cooling system is the radiator. It is what takes the heat away from the hot coolant and transfers it to the air passing through. Your radiator will last a pretty long time but eventually it will fail.

If your radiator develops a hole or a leak, it will need to replaced. The radiator will not be able to cool the engine like is should if it doesn’t have the proper pressure and if it is losing coolant. Our skilled technicians have changed out radiators many times and are more than happy to help you with yours!

Water Pump

Your water pump is another very important component in your vehicle’s cooling system. The water pump is run by your serpentine belt. It’s job is to push the coolant through the engine, radiator, and the radiator hoses. This pump is what forces the coolant to flow.

These pumps do fail from time to time. On the bottom of your water pump there is what is known as a weep hole. As the water pump gets close to failing, coolant will leak from this weep hole. This is your indication that it needs to be replaced. Without something pushing the coolant, your engine will not get the cooling that it needs. If you notice leaking coolant from your water pump, don’t hesitate to stop by A-1 Auto Tech, Inc.


A very simple component that can have a drastic effect on your cooling system are the hoses. These hoses are what the coolant flows through. There are hoses for the coolant coming into the radiator as well as for the coolant leaving the radiator.

These hoses can cause coolant to leak. This could result in your vehicle overheating. Our skilled technicians are happy to replace your old worn hoses, for new ones. This simple and quick repair can prevent a lot of headache down the road.
