The cooling system of your vehicle has an important job - it keeps your engine cool at all times while driving, which prevents engine overheating and damage to internal engine components. If your vehicle’s cooling system isn’t working properly, overheating can occur and vital parts of your vehicle’s engine may begin to corrode. It is important to have your vehicle’s cooling system inspected regularly in order to avoid costly engine repairs and unforeseen breakdowns. At Meissner Automotive in Palo Alto, CA. Our ASE certified mechanics are experienced and trained to work on cooling systems in all makes and models of vehicles.
We recommend that you have your vehicle’s cooling system inspected at least once a year by our experts. As part of our inspection, we will visually inspect all components of your cooling system, fluid levels, look for leaks, and check for any corrosion or damage. If necessary, our technicians will perform a cooling system fluid exchange to replace old oil fluid and clean your oil chamber to keep fresh, clean coolant running through your vehicle.
A problem with your engine’s cooling system can often stem from a blown head gasket or a leak from the radiator. If your vehicle is overheating or you notice a visible leak that is green or orange coming from underneath your vehicle, we recommend coming into our shop as soon as possible. We will perform a cooling system pressure test which will help simulate the engine getting hot and allow us to determine if the problem is with the cooling system. Regardless of the issue, our experts will work quickly and get you back on the road safely.
