Engine Cooling System – University Place, Tacoma WA
An important part of maintaining your vehicle includes checking your engine’s cooling system. Having a clean and efficient cooling system helps to extend the life of your vehicle, while also helping to avoid any costly engine problems or breakdowns in the future.
While idling and driving your car, your engine’s combustion process generates heat. What you might find surprising is that without a properly functioning engine cooling system, your engine’s heat is great enough to damage components of the engine itself.
Some of the signs that it’s time to have your engine cooling system inspected include:
- Coolant leaks
- Smoke from under the hood
- Bubbling or gurgling sounds under the hood
A sure sign that there is something wrong is engine overheating.
Overheating can cause aluminum heads to warp, head gaskets can blow, and worst-case, engines can fail. Your vehicle’s cooling system helps to keep your vehicle’s engine cool, flowing, and smooth.
If your car is overheating, schedule an appointment at McCabe’s Automotive at University Place right away.
