Weak Battery? Here's How to Test It

Diagnosing Radiator System Issues

Your vehicle's engine creates a great deal of heat during normal operations, and it is the job of the radiator and the rest of the cooling system to keep these high temperatures in check. To do so, the system pumps large volumes of coolant through the radiator core, and this coolant is carried by your radiator hoses.
