Radiator fluid expertise
Nowadays, radiator fluid acts as both a coolant on hot days and an antifreeze in cold weather. Depending on your vehicle’s make and model, you can expect to drive through both scorching hot weather and snowstorms without problems from your radiator system. Over time, however, the radiator fluid loses its ability to maintain a regular temperature range and problems can arise.
If you notice your car steadily overheating while you’re driving or you have a hard time starting your vehicle on cold mornings, it’s best to come to Auto Oil Changers for a radiator fluid inspection. We can determine if you have a leak, need a fluid refill, or need a complete coolant flush. We price all of our services competitively, and we pride ourselves on timely service so you can get back on the road as soon as possible.

Signs your car needs a coolant flush
Your vehicle’s radiator and coolant system are vital for prolonging your engine’s life and ensuring you have reliable transportation. When your radiator needs servicing, you’ll know it. Typically, you’ll see a range of warning signs that indicate your radiator fluid may need to be replaced.
Signs you need to replace your radiator fluid include:
- Temperature gauge fluctuating from normal to hot as you drive
- Antifreeze/coolant pooling under your car
- Grinding sounds emanating from your engine
- Visible rust/scaling in your coolant
- Steam coming from under your hood
- Maple-syrup-like smell emanating from your hood
Don’t risk permanently damaging your engine or stalling in a remote location. Contact our radiator experts today, and we’ll ensure your coolant system works properly.
The importance of keeping your engine cool
Your engine not only produces a large amount of horsepower, but it also produces an inordinate amount of heat. Without a properly functioning radiator and coolant system, you risk your engine becoming so hot that it damages itself. Gaskets can crack, heads can warp, and you can experience a total engine failure that will not only stop you in your tracks but costs thousands of dollars to get repaired.
At Auto Oil Changers, we offer fast and effective radiator/coolant system diagnostics, servicing, and fluid refills. We can top off your coolant levels, stop any leaks in your radiator, and ensure your engine has the cooling it needs to work efficiently. Our shops in Visalia, CA, and Tulare, CA, are open six days a week, and we’ll ensure you get the maintenance you need for a reasonable price.
