The job of your water pump is to keep coolant flowing through your radiator and engine. If there’s a block or a leak, your engine can quickly overheat and your vehicle will break down.
Coolant leaks are caused by cracked or ill fitting hoses or a hole in the radiator itself. Radiator metal is thin and easily damaged, but the number one cause of coolant leaks is corrosion and the number one cause of corrosion is a lack of routine maintenance.
We recommend having your coolant system professionally inspected at least once a year. A flush and fill is a critical part of routine maintenance. Antifreeze (coolant) is very caustic, if it is left in the radiator for too long, it will begin to corrode the metal and could cause a potentially disastrous leak. If we detect any coolant leaks, we can repair them or replace the damaged part
