Engine Cooling Services
Any engine that burns petroleum products is an internal combustion engine. This means that thousands of small explosions occur in it to keep the pistons moving and power going to the drive train. Explosions are hot. If the engine gets too hot, it overheats and that's not good for it.
Although some engines are air-cooled, many cars' internal combustion engines are cooled by water to which anti-freeze (ethylene glycol) has been added. This coolant mixture keeps the engine from overheating by drawing the heat out of the engine as it circulates through the engine and back through the radiator where the heat dissipates into the air. A fan also helps with the cooling process. Vehicles with automatic transmissions also use the cooling system to keep the transmission fluid at the best temperature.
While the concept of cooling an engine by circulating liquid coolant through it sounds simple, there are many ways a cooling system can become less efficient. Since efficiency is key to saving money, it just makes sense to bring your vehicle to the Galaxy Auto Center closest to you for an annual cooling system check up. An ASE-certified technician will look at all of the system components to be sure they are working properly and that the anti-freeze is still doing its job. Then, the technician will review the checklist with you so you can see exactly what's working right and what may need some repair.
Keeping your vehicle's engine cooling system functioning effectively can help extend the life of your car - a big plus these days.
