Radiator Repair or Replacement
Lowell's Auto Provides Radiator Repair and Replacement
The radiator is an essential part of your car’s cooling system, as it helps to keep the engine from overheating. Over time, radiators can become damaged or worn out, leading to problems with the cooling system.
Is there a problem?
If you suspect that your radiator is damaged or not functioning correctly, you should bring your car to one of our mechanics for inspection. Here are some common signs that your radiator may need repair or replacement:
- Your car is overheating
- There is coolant leaking from the radiator
- There is rust or corrosion visible on the radiator
- The radiator fins are bent or damaged
- There is debris or dirt blocking the radiator
Depending on the extent of the damage, we may recommend either a repair or replacement of the radiator. If the damage is minor, such as a small leak or bent fins, a repair may be possible. This could involve patching the leak or straightening the fins.
However, if the damage is severe or the radiator is very old, we may recommend a replacement. A new radiator can be installed in your car, which will function like the original one. Your mechanic may also recommend replacing other components of the cooling system, such as the hoses or thermostat, while the radiator is being replaced.
In terms of cost, the price of radiator repair or replacement will depend on several factors, such as the make and model of your car, the extent of the damage, and the cost of the new radiator or parts. You should expect to pay anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars for radiator repair or replacement, depending on these factors.
Overall, if you suspect that your radiator is damaged or not functioning correctly, it is essential to take your car to us for inspection and possible repair or replacement. This will help to prevent further damage to your car’s engine and ensure that your car is running smoothly and safely.
