An automobile is a collection of diverse systems that all need to work together for your vehicle to perform as it should. If there’s an issue with one, you still may be able to drive it, but it won’t be running reliably. It may not even be safe to be on the road.
Our team at Millikan Battery and Electric, Inc. is very familiar with the ins and outs of auto repair. We’ll look at radiator repair in Apopka as a straightforward example to illustrate the above principle.
The radiators are the heart of the vehicle’s cooling system. It provides a large surface area for quick and easy heat transfer as the coolant flows through it. Like any component on a car, truck, or SUV, it can be subjected to damage and corrosion, which will cause it not to work properly.
When that happens, you will find that your car’s AC won’t work right, and it will struggle to keep the interior cool. That, in turn, will cause your engine to work harder and reduce its fuel efficiency.
Leaks from the radiator or its hoses are common issues that impair performance. They can be solved either by replacing the unit or the hoses. It’s imperative to address leaks as soon as you find them because animals such as dogs and cats love the taste of coolant and will drink it from puddles in the driveway. This is very dangerous for their health.
