The radiator in your vehicle is essential to keeping your vehicle’s engine, transmission, and sometimes other systems like the power steering and air conditioner running cool and performing at its best. The radiator is a heat exchanger, which removes internal heat from fluids and transfers it to the outside air. Radiators vary in design, but most radiators in today’s vehicles are made of aluminum cores with plastic headers and gaskets. This lightweight design helps decrease a vehicle’s weight and increase fuel economy, but it also means radiators are more prone to fail, and when they do, often require replacement rather than repair. Radiators are typically found in the very front of the vehicle, where they can receive airflow from forward motion through the vehicle’s grill. Proper maintenance of radiators, including keeping fluids clean and the radiator coils clean of debris, is critical to your vehicle’s overall performance.

Radiator Flush

Arizona is a dusty desert, and your vehicle’s radiator is exposed through the front grill to bugs, debris, and dirt. Environmental contaminants, rust, and deposits can build up in radiator fluids over time, and if not maintained can cause a radiator to fail and your vehicle to overheat. Although you should always refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for specific guidelines, in general, it is recommended to perform a professional radiator flush every 30K miles or every 5 years (whichever comes sooner).

New Dimensions Automotive performs Radiator Flushes with professional-grade coolants specific to your vehicle’s application. Our technicians will flush the coolant system and perform an overall inspection, keeping you advised of parts that may show signs of wear and tear.

Radiator Replacement

Ever heard the saying “They just don’t make them like they used to”?  When it comes to automotive radiators, this couldn’t be more true. Older vehicles have radiators constructed of brass or copper with metal headers, which means they could last the test of time. Today’s radiators are mostly made of aluminum and plastic, which means they are more prone to failure, especially under extreme environmental conditions such as Arizona summers and landscapes.

Although if adequately maintained, a radiator could last up to 10 years, it’s not uncommon to see a radiator fail before then. When it comes time for a radiator replacement New Dimensions Automotive offers a wide range of options to satisfy any budget. Dealer-direct parts are available, as well as aftermarket options. Radiator kits purchased through New Dimensions Automotive are backed by a Nationwide Limited warranty on both parts and labor and in some cases, the radiator itself has a Lifetime Warranty from the manufacturer.
