Cooling System Service & Repair in Columbia, MO
The cooling system of a vehicle helps cool the engine down as you drive. This is a very important and extensive task; multiple explosions occur as you are driving your vehicle every second, so there is a lot of heat produced. Without an effective cooling system, your engine would heat up and stop functioning within a few minutes. If you feel that your cooling system needs servicing or repairs, feel free to come to Woody's Auto Center in Columbia. Our owner Devin Kelley hires only the best technicians for all our services, including European Auto Repair, oil changes, fluid services and tune-ups, radiator replacement and cooling system service and repair.
A liquid cooling system passes liquid called coolant through the passages in the engine block. Also called antifreeze, coolant is powered by the water pump and cools the engine parts as it passes by, absorbing heat from these parts. This warm liquid then flows to the radiator, which is cooled by the air stream that enters the grille of the car. As it travels through the radiator, the coolant or antifreeze will cool down and will once again enter the engine to repeat the process again. Whether you drive a Audi, BMW, Jaguar, or Ford, your vehicle’s cooling systems will work in the same way. At Woody's Auto Center in Columbia, we can perform a thorough inspection of your vehicle’s cooling system to ensure all parts, including the belts & hoses, radiator, and cooling liquid are working smoothly and efficiently. We can also replace your water pump or thermostat if needed.
How do I know if my automobile needs a cooling system service?
Here are some indicators that your car might need a cooling system service:
- The temperature level gauge reads hot.
If your vehicle is running low on coolant or antifreeze or there is an issue with your overall cooling system, the temperature gauge on your dashboard will consistently run hot.
- Cooling system discoloration or corrosion.
If your cooling system is leaking, warm coolant liquid can break out and drip down onto engine parts. The liquid will bubble up and evaporate, leaving some discoloration which, if not treated in a timely fashion, can lead to corrosion. Don’t hesitate to bring your car to Woody's Auto Center in Columbia if you notice any discoloration on your vehicle’s parts. We will perform a full inspection of your car and let you know if any additional services are needed, such as transmission repair and European Auto Repair, oil changes, fluid services and tune-ups.
- Coolant leakage.
If you see an intense green, sometimes yellow or pink, fluid dripping from your car or truck, there is likely a problem with your cooling system.
If your car is overheating, you will see steam billowing out from under your hood. This most likely suggests a cooling system problem.
If you are experiencing several of these signs, it is imperative that you bring your car or truck in for a cooling system service immediately. If you live in Boone County, you can come to Woody's Auto Center.
