Toyota Radiator Replacement Details

The radiator's job is to allow heat to be removed from the engine. As hot coolant passes through the radiator it is cooled before returning to the engine, where it absorbs heat and returns to the radiator. This cooling process keeps the engine from overheating.

Common Symptoms:

  • Coolant may leak or boil over
  • Temperature gauge may get really high
  • Illumination of the engine temperature warning light
  • Engine may run hot or overheat

What the Mechanic Should Do:

  • Replace the thermostat and the radiator cap along with the radiator. The radiator hoses should also be replaced if they show signs of age or wear.
  • The entire cooling system should be inspected and tested when the radiator is replaced
  • Most radiators are made of metal and plastic. The plastic parts can become brittle and crack over time, leading to radiator replacement.

They were the only ones to get me in and when I couldn't start my car, they had their shop opened longer. My car was running and couldn't turn it off. Someone stayed past business hours to help my vehicle. After I went there my car still needed work. I am leery that something is wrong with it.

by - Verified Customer February 05, 2014

Dependable and knowledgeable service. Handy location.
