Cooling Systems

Your vehicles cooling system removes excess heat from the engine to prevent it from overheating. With regular driving, the coolant in the cooling system also gets old and dirty which impacts performance and will, therefore, need replacing.

Water Pumps

The water pump moves water from the radiator, through the car engine, and back to the radiator to keep your motor at a constant temperature.


Your cars radiator cools the engine by circulating coolant through the engine blocks and removing excess heat through radiation. If your radiator fails, heat builds up in the engine which can cause extensive damage. Regular radiator services and radiator flushes can prevent this from happening.

Heater Hoses

The hoses that transfer antifreeze and coolant through your engines cooling system can dry out and form cracks over time. To stop this from becoming an issue, it is important to schedule regular hose inspections and replace any worn hoses immediately.

Heater Core

This part of your car cooling system works in a similar but smaller way to your radiator. It circulates coolant through small tubes and radiates heat into the body of the car.

Spark Plugs

Spark plugs deliver electrical current to the combustion chamber, which allows the car to start. If they haven’t been changed in a while, you may start experiencing ignition problems.

Spark Plug Wires

Spark plug wires (also called ignition cables) transfer the spark generated by the ignition coil to the spark plugs causing the mixture of fuel and air to ignite, starting the engine. If these wires weaken or break, you could have an engine misfire and problems starting your car.

Ignition Coils

Ignition coils (or spark coils) transform your vehicle’s battery voltage to the thousands of volts that are needed to create an electric spark in the spark plugs. A faulty ignition coil will need to be replaced.

Other Services

Oil, lubricant and oil filters

Check engine light diagnosis

Fuel injection system maintenance
