Callagy Automotive & Smog is the leading auto repair specialist in Santa Rosa for the service, repair, and replacement of automotive cooling system components. The mechanic staff at our Santa Rosa automotive repair shop knows how important a role the cooling system in your car or truck plays in your engine's longevity and your vehicle's overall dependability as you drive in an around Santa Rosa. As automotive technology has advanced over the years the cooling system has progressed with new coolant formulations and more efficient radiator designs and materials. The primary function of the cooling system in your vehicle is to remove the heat from the engine and dissipate it to the outside air. This happens when the water pump circulates coolant throughout the engine system where it absorbs the heat before being returned to the radiator. When the heated coolant returns to the radiator, the heat is dissipated into the air. A thermostat is used to regulate the temperature of the coolant to make sure it is consistent for maximum engine operation efficiency.
The need to replace the various components of the cooling system — such as the water pump, thermostat, and radiator — are affected by a variety of factors and Santa Rosa driving conditions. Some factors include your driving habits, various operating conditions, the type of vehicle and coolant being used, and of course the frequency of scheduled maintenance services like coolant changes. Possible problems with your vehicle's cooling system may include overheating, a “sweet smell”, leaks, and the frequent need to add fluid.
