Cooling System Repair

Do you need a cooling system repair or radiator replacement? A radiator is an object in your car that transfers heat from one thing to another. A vehicle is used to cool down an engine when it is hot to prevent overheating. It makes your car’s heating and cooling system operate correctly!

Parts & Replacement

While there are many types of auto parts, it’s important to know which to choose. Some parts need to be replaced more often than others, and some parts are more reliable than others.

Cooling System Repair Shop

When your car burns fuel, it generates heat! You want to keep as much heat as possible away from your engine to prevent damage. This is where the cooling comes in. The cooling system will work once the thermometer at the top of the machine detects a certain amount of heat. When the thermometer detects too much heat, the antifreeze will blast through the cooling system to try and cool the engine down.

The liquid will come back through the radiator when the engine is cooled down. The radiator has fins that will help filter the hot from the car into the air outside and the engine.

Tedious repairs did a great job on my vehicle. They made the repairs but also made recommendations for other things they saw that needed to be done. The staff was friendly and professional. I would recommend them to anyone.

I love tedious repairs, he did everything I wanted done to my Audi as soon as the parts came in! Also more recently helped get an estimate on another vehicle I own, going out of his way to make sure I was informed. Super nice, excellent service, straight forward and fair priced

Came in for a cheap oil change. They found that the brake pads on my car were low and got them repaired in the same day! Great service and friendly office lady!

not only did Tedious Repairs complete the job I had my Golf in for, but in addition he added a few repairs for a very reasonable price, (after confirming with me that it was O.K.) such as repairing a tire that had a nail in it; I will return to this business in the future for my auto's needs

Buddy and his team of well qualified technicians always do a great job. I’ve taken my cars to them for nearly 20 years now, at least 3 different vehicles, and I cannot recommend them enough. They’re thorough, hard working and honest. Tough qualities to find in people now a days, let alone a mechanic!!!

This is the only place I take my vehicles to get worked on. Buddy and his team simply know the ins and outs of all varieties of vehicles. I have had A/C Repair, Oil Changes, Brakes, and a New Key Fob made all at Tedious Repairs. Pricing is honest and simply the best around town. You get an itemized list of all jobs that need to be done after a full diagnostic of your vehicle; and you can choose what you want done. No trickery

Highly recommend this shop! The owner is super friendly and was able to get my car in for a brake job the day that I called. It turned out to be extra work than we had initially thought and, once approved, they had no problem taking care of the extra work immediately. They also did a full car inspection with descriptions and pictures sent straight to my phone. The up front communication and honesty were both greatly appreciated. Brake price was the best that I found in town after much research. I will definitely be back for future repairs!

Car Cooling System Repair & Replacement

A properly cared-for cooling system should last you at least three years. But usually, 8-10 years. When your temperature gauge constantly runs high, your radiator probably needs to be replaced.

Also, when your car is overheating, leaking coolant has low coolant levels, or has car heating issues, it’s time to replace your radiator! The average radiator replacement, according to Google, costs about 1,500. So, it’s essential to maintain it properly!

What Causes Cooling Systems To Fail?

Radiators could fail for many reasons. One reason is rust. This is the biggest reason that radiators will fail. Salt, humidity, weather, and more are reasons rust could form on radiators. When rust begins forming on your radiator, it will slowly stop working until it just completely decays.
Another reason is physical damage. For example, your radiator could be physically damaged by something and need to be replaced. Another reason is electrolysis. Electrolysis is a chemical decomposition. So, a chemical in your car would have to cause this.


Only the oil and a few fans are left to reduce engine heat when the coolant is wholly gone. Unfortunately, the oil will burn away quickly, leaving nothing to protect the engine from friction heat. Oil can even charge and get stuck to the engine’s internal components. After that, you’re looking at expensive engine cleaning and repairs that may leave you questioning whether it’s time to buy a new ride.



Radiator corrosion is expected due to environmental factors like rain and mud and can even happen due to chemical degradation under rare circumstances. Over time, all-metal and mechanical parts will wear and rust until they need to be replaced… go as we all, like dust in the wind… sigh.

 But I digress. The same goes for gaskets, hose connectors, and other metallic parts. Physical damage says accidents can also cause damage.

Bad engine coolant is one of the chemical causes of radiator holes. Unfortunately, some cheap coolants aren’t even good enough to do the job and allow the engine to heat quickly despite the presence of coolant. This is why ensuring you’re using the correct engine coolant for the job is essential.
