Need to have your car radiator repaired or replaced?
Your engine's radiator performs the essential task of cooling the radiator fluid (or coolant) that keeps your engine running at the proper temperature, and in many cases, it also cools the automatic transmission fluid. There are no moving parts in a radiator, but corrosion from both the inside and the outside eventually takes its toll, resulting in a leak. A green puddle of coolant under your car is usually the first sign of a radiator leak. In most cases, this leak is small enough that you can add coolant until a replacement radiator can be obtained.
Modern vehicles' radiators typically have aluminum cores (the finned part) and plastic side tanks. When used with today's modern radiator fluids (and with proper preventative maintenance), these modern radiators can last up to 150,000 miles. This was not always the case. The copper core and brass side tank radiator of most older vehicles typically lasts half that long. However, when you consider that newer vehicles have much more complex engine compartments with tight access to radiators, at least it is much easier to replace a radiator on an older vehicle.
