Radiator Repair in Rochester, MN - Babcock Auto Care

Your vehicle's radiator is Important

Your radiator serves the vital role of cooling your engine. While the engine is running, extreme heat is created by the friction of moving parts inside the engine, combined with the combustion process. Engine coolant circulates through a series of channels in your engine, absorbing excessive heat and carrying it away to the radiator. The hot coolant runs through thin tubes in the radiator core, where air passes through and dissipates much of the heat.
Many radiators also serve as a cooler for the transmission fluid. In much the same way as the engine coolant, transmission fluid circulates through part of the radiator to cool the fluid, preventing heat from damaging the transmission.

Timely radiator repairs will serve you well

Heat is your engine's enemy and must be carefully controlled. The ideal engine temperature is controlled with a thermostat that regulates the coolant flow to the radiator for optimal running temperature to be maintained. If the radiator can't perform its function of removing heat from the coolant, your engine temperature will skyrocket and your engine can overheat. This can mean expensive repairs, including head gasket replacement, internal bearing failure, or even a complete engine rebuild or replacement.
If your engine temperature begins to climb beyond the normal zone, or if you get an 'engine hot' warning message, there's likely a problem in your cooling system that needs attention. It could be:
A coolant hose leak
The water pump not working
A malfunctioning or stuck thermostat
Time for a radiator repair
If your vehicle needs radiator repair, it's best to have this completed right away. If left unattended, a leaking or plugged radiator can contribute to major problems that will quickly get worse with time. The longer a radiator repair is ignored, the greater the chances for bigger problems down the road.

Words from our clients:

Customer service was great and follow up details about my vehicle while it was in the shop were very helpful. Emails with attached pictures and details was a first for me and the shop contacted me regarding services needed rather than just fixing it and charging me. I knew everything going on from drop off until pickup. The shuttle service was also very helpful!
