Reasons to Service Your Cooling System

Reasons to Service Your Cooling System

There are many reasons to avoid having your car overheat. For one, it is the most common reason for mechanical breakdowns that can inconvenience you or even lead to unsafe situations. The best way to stay away from the dangers of engine overheating is through a healthy and well-maintained engine cooling system. This critical system controls the heat generated by your engine. In order to run properly, the average engine needs to make thousands of controlled explosions every minute. Though small in stature, your spark plugs play a major role. They are found inside the engine and they ignite the fuel to move the vehicle down the road. All of this generates a tremendous amount of heat every second your vehicle is running. Even in ideal situations, your car's engine cooling system needs to be in optimal condition to properly control heat levels.

If not properly controlled by the cooling system, high levels of heat can cause serious damage to your engine components. This damage includes:
Blown Gaskets
Warping of Aluminum Heads
That will leave you susceptible to complete engine failure. This not only puts you and your family in danger but also can cost between $1,800 and $3,500 to replace.

To avoid the damage, costs, and possible injury, the experts at North York Chrysler suggest you get a full Cooling System Service at either our Service Centre or MOPAR Express Lane. When you do come in, our highly trained service team will take your vehicle through a number of checks and services including:
