Cooling System Maintenance

Is your vehicle’s temperature warning light on?

Stop immediately and get it checked before severe engine damage occurs! You may even want to consider having your vehicle towed to Heinold & Feller.  Automotive cooling systems are one of the most critical components of your car.  Running too hot can ruin an engine in a hurry. Running too cold can reduce efficiency and performance.

This is another reason why routine maintenance and fluid flushes are so important. Consult your vehicle owner’s manual for specific guidelines, or ask us to print of a maintenance schedule for your specific vehicle. Click below to request a service quote or to schedule an appointment online.


When your radiator is not working properly, it is like giving your engine a fever. This not only harms performance, but can cause major damage. A leak in your radiator can turn a messy situation into a major repair for your vehicle.

Your radiator is one of your vehicle’s most vital components. The radiator displaces heat caused by your engine in order to keep the engine cool and running efficiently. This in turn will allow your engine to last as long as possible and keep it safe from abnormal wear and tear.

Our friendly and courteous auto care professionals will repair your radiator, when possible, and get you back on the road with confidence. We want to make sure your radiator will keep your engine at the optimal temperature so you can avoid a much more costly visit to our shop.

Are you seeing a green leak under your car? Your engine may be leaking coolant/antifreeze and in danger of overheating causing costly damage including:

  • Destruction of your radiator
  • Cracking or blowing out the engine’s head gasket
  • Total engine seizure
  • **Keep pets away from any coolant/antifreeze leaks as it is poisonous to them.**

Joe Talks - Cooling Systems & Radiators

The cooling system inspection identifies areas that need attention, and consists of the following:

  • A visual inspection of all cooling system components, including belts and hoses
  • A radiator cap pressure test to check the recommended system pressure level
  • A thermostat check for proper opening and closing
  • A pressure test to identify external leaks to the cooling system parts including the radiator, water pump, engine coolant passages, heater hoses and heater core
  • An internal leak test to check for combustion gas leakage into the cooling system
