Your vehicle’s radiator and cooling system are critical to keeping your car’s engine operational. Engines run hot, and while they require some heat to run at their peak levels, overheating can seriously damage internal components. The cooling system is more than just a radiator and fan; and making sure all of the parts work together properly is what keeps your engine at the optimal temperature. The way the coolant flows through the radiator, the thermostat, the water pump, overflow tank and other components needs to be spot on to keep your car from running into disaster. If your engine is running hot or if it’s been awhile since you had your cooling system checked out, then you should stop by Superior Auto Center‘s Norwich radiator service to have it checked out.

If you notice any issues with your cooling system, our shop can meet your needs to keep your car running. Some of the signs that your car is suffering from cooling system failure are:
- Noticing a sweet smell entering your car. If you suddenly smell a sweet odor, it’s possible that your coolant/antifreeze is leaking. Other possible signs included with this are steam rising from the engine compartment or seeing a film building up on your windshield.
- The temperature light on the dashboard turns on. Any time a dash light stays on is a sign to get a diagnostics check done to be sure everything is functioning properly.
- The temperature gauge is higher or lower than normal. For most vehicles, that means the needle should be near the center of the gauge during operation after the engine has had time to warm up.
- The heater suddenly stops working correctly. Vehicle heaters are tied into the cooling system, so if you notice a sudden change in the way the heater performs in the car, it could be a sign that your coolant system isn’t functioning correctly
If you notice any of the above issues, your car likely needs professional help, so if you’re in Norwich, our radiator services can meet your needs.
