Your vehicle’s engine creates excess heat as it runs, and it must be cooled to avoid overheating and breaking down. That’s where your engine cooling system comes in. It pumps coolant fluid through your engine block, cooling it and carrying heat through hoses to your radiator. As the hot coolant flows through your radiator, it’s cooled by the outside air and your radiator fan, and then the coolant is pumped back into the engine to continue the cooling cycle. Without a properly functioning cooling system, your engine would quickly get too hot to run properly.
Action Gator Tire serves Central and South Florida with full-service engine cooling system maintenance and repair. Our teams of ASE-certified mechanics are here to inspect and troubleshoot any issues you may have with your water pump, radiator hoses, radiator, and other cooling system components. If you’re noticing coolant leaks or your engine is running hotter than normal, don’t hesitate to bring your car to your nearest Action Gator Tire for fast, friendly service. With 29 locations in the Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, Sarasota, Tampa, and Ocala, FL areas, we’re always just around the corner.
Over time, your coolant fluid, also called antifreeze, will break down and lose its effectiveness. Old, worn out coolant can also lead to corrosion of cooling system hoses and other parts. With a routine cooling system flush and fill, your Action Gator mechanics will drain all of your coolant, flush the system to clean it, and then refill it with fresh coolant. It’s a fast and cost-effective way to ensure your engine cooling system stays effective for many miles to come.
Engine cooling systems are critical components to a working vehicle, but they’re also susceptible to damage. The most common cooling system issue is a coolant leak, which can be tough to locate and cause bigger issues if left unrepaired. If you spot a coolant leak, just bring your vehicle to Action Gator Tire for an expert pressure test, which will allow us to find the source of the leak. Then, we’ll determine the repairs needed and guide you through your options for a fast, affordable fix.
Radiators work by pumping coolant through very tiny metal pipes with thin metal ribs that allow as much air as possible between them. Sitting at the very front of your car, ahead of your engine, your radiator uses normal outside air to disperse your engine’s extra heat. Radiators are important parts, but they’re also fairly easy to break, puncture, clog, or otherwise malfunction. If you think your radiator is failing or your engine is overheating, don’t hesitate to bring your vehicle to your nearest Action Gator for a radiator inspection and replacement. We’ll fix your radiator or replace it with a high-quality new radiator, as needed, to get you back on the road quickly.
