Prevent vehicle overheating
When your vehicle is running, the engine is generating lots of heat that needs to be controlled in order to avoid damage to vital components under the hood. The cooling system in your vehicle is what helps to control the heat that is generated from your engine. The system circulates coolant through your vehicle’s engine and radiator to keep components lubricated and protected from excessive heat. If the heat from your engine isn’t controlled, overheating can occur and internal parts can be damaged. At Simard Automotive in Fairbanks, Alaska, our certified technicians are experienced and trained to repair cooling systems on all makes and models of vehicles.

Cooling system inspection
Our experts recommend a cooling system inspection once a year to ensure that it is working properly. Our complete visual inspection will include checking components of your cooling system and fluid levels, looking for leaks, and checking parts of your engine for corrosion. If needed, our experts will perform a cooling system flush and fill to replace old coolant and clean components to keep fresh, clean coolant running throughout your vehicle.
A faulty cooling system can sometimes stem from a blown head gasket or a radiator leak. Our experts can determine the exact cause of the issue with a cooling system pressure test. This test helps us simulate the engine getting hot and allows us to see which component is failing. Keep an eye out for green or orange fluid leaks underneath your vehicle – this can indicate a coolant leak which can cause problems with the cooling system.
