What is included in the cooling system service? The pressure conditions and coolant volume are checked. The radiator cap is checked to ensure it functions and fits correctly. Radiator hoses are checked to ensure they are not worn, cracked or disintegrating. Engine belts are checked. The National Automotive Radiator Service Association (NARSA) recommends you get your vehicle a cooling system maintenance check at least once every two years.


Sometimes it seems that an overheated engine only occurs when you are on the road, far from a local auto air conditioning repair shop. That is why it is crucial to look for signs of radiator problems in your car before it can cause very serious damage. The most noticeable symptoms of a cooling system problem are as follows:

  • Overheating: Smoke may come out from under your hood when the engine is getting too hot. You should not keep running your engine if it is too hot. Instead, pull your car over in a safe place, such as a parking lot. Turn off the air conditioner and engine to allow the engine to cool. It’s very important to visit a repair shop as soon as possible. You will also notice the heating gauge in your vehicle will move from medium to hot. When you see the temperature begin to creep up, pull over to the side of the road and refill your coolant.

  • Leaking fluid: You may notice that the pipes are starting to leak under your car. This will alert you that it is time to have your cooling system checked before heading out on the road. Smell of antifreeze: This one speaks for itself. When you start smelling the sweet smell of antifreeze while driving, visit the nearest car maintenance shop as soon as possible.

  • Repeatedly needing to add coolant: Continuously adding coolant for long periods of time is damaging to your engine. It means that the cooling system is not performing its task correctly. If you notice your car is overheating regularly and your coolant is consistently low, you may want to have your vehicle checked.

Is coolant and antifreeze the same thing?

Antifreeze and engine coolant are similar, but not the same. 

Antifreeze is PURE - it is not diluted in any way.
