Water Pump

Your vehicle’s water pump is one of the most important parts of your car’s engine. To keep your car running it is crucial to maintaining engine temperature and It is the job of the water pump to continually circulate coolant through your vehicle’s engine and back through the radiator so that it doesn’t overheat. We…

Spark Plugs

A spark plug is a device for delivering an electric spark into the combustion chamber of your engine. It ignites the compressed mixture of fuel and air causing the pistons to move up and down. The power from the pistons is what ultimately keeps your car moving. We recommend getting your spark plugs checked every 30,000…

Radiator Hose

The radiator hose transfers coolant from an engine’s water pump to its radiator. There is an upper hose that connects the top of the radiator to the top of the engine. And a lower hose connects the bottom of the radiator to the water pump, which keeps coolant flowing through the system. Its a good idea…

Radiator Cap

The radiator cap keeps your engine cool by sealing and pressurizing the coolant inside it. It is designed to hold the coolant in the radiator under a predetermined amount of pressure. Once the pressure reaches maximum. the cap opens its release valve and allows heat to escape. To maintain your cooling system, it is important that…

Radiator

The radiator is a primary component of a vehicle’s cooling system. It circulates coolant fluid from the water pump to the engine, keeping the car from overheating. To maintain your cooling system, it is important that the radiator is working properly and efficiently removes the heat from the engine. So, if you are overheating, and…

Oil Temp Sensor

The oil temperature sensor is an electronic device in your engine, that monitors the temperature of your motor oil. Most sensors in your engine don’t have a recommended service interval, you just have to replace them when they fail. So, if your engine starts overheating without warning, chances are your oil temperature sensor is not…

Oil Change

Motor oil is an essential lubricant.  It’s main function is to lubricate the moving parts in your engine, but it also cleans, inhibits corrosion, and cools the engine by carrying heat away from those moving parts.  For years, the accepted interval for oil replacement and filter service has been every 3 months or 3 thousand…

Coolant

Coolant is the generally accepted term for the liquid that absorbs heat from the engine and releases it through the radiator.  As the coolant circulates through the system it transfers heat to the radiator and into the air. The liquid is cooled, fed back to the engine through the cooling system, and the cycle repeats.…
