Warm Weather Auto Repairs in Nashua NH
During these hot summer months your car’s cooling system is a safe haven for you and your vehicle. Old corroded hoses crack and can cause coolant or refrigerant leaks leaving passengers and/or your motor stifling hot! Here at RK Auto Repair in Nashua NH, we suggest a scheduled once over so you’re never left stranded.
Radiator/cooling system hoses are a crucial part of your car’s cooling structure, which is designed to keep you and your car engine from overheating. When your car’s engine is running it creates an abundance of heat. Your cooling system hoses carry coolant through the radiator and back through the engine in order to keep it operating at a correct temperature. There are numerous hoses to this system. The hoses are made of rubber, therefore, it is common for these hoses tol wear and tear, ending with them inspected and replaced.
When a radiator/cooling system hose bursts or leaks, the engine will not get the intended amount of coolant and will overheat, causing severe damage to your vehicle’s engine. We recommend that this type of auto repair in Nashua NH be executed every 5 years or 40,000 miles. However, with the weather heating up it is always a good idea to have your RK mechanic give them a once over. There are some signs to look for that may indicate a radiator hose replacement.
