Cooling System Repair
Your vehicle's engine and transmission are vulnerable to overheating. This is especially true in the heat of summer. This is also why your vehicle's cooling system needs to be completely flushed and refilled every 2 years. Even much more frequently, though, your automotive mechanic should check the level, condition, and concentration of your vehicle's coolant, as well as its hoses, clamps and drive belts.

The engine in your car runs best at a high temperature. When the engine is cold, components wear out faster, and the engine is less efficient and emits more pollution. So another important job of the cooling system is to allow the engine to heat up as quickly as possible, and then to keep the engine at a constant temperature.
