Radiator Repair in Newport News, VA

Our Approach

Most people have some idea of what a radiator is from old black and white films. You know, the kind that depict a classic car with plumes of white smoke billowing out from under of the hood? Of course, the star of the movie gets everything under control by adding water to the radiator. In real life however, your radiator is far more complex than that, and added water does little good.

Located near the front of the engine compartment, the radiator allows coolant to pass through it to conduct heat away from the engine. Without a properly functioning radiator, your engine will overheat. This can result in extensive engine damage and a massive repair bill.
