COOLING SYSTEMS

A vehicle’s water pump is essential for circulating coolant throughout the vehicle’s engine. If the water pump isn’t functioning correctly, the engine coolant just sits in the block and heats, instead of getting delivered to the radiator to exchange its heat.  If the radiator is not delivering coolant to the engine the engine can overheat which can lead to warped heads, blown head gaskets, and lots of wear and tear on your vehicle.  Kamphaus Auto Care provides a water pump and radiator flush service to determine if there are issues with your car’s cooling system. Come into Kamphaus Auto Care and Emissions to have us check out your radiator and water pump.
