Whether you mostly commute around Pleasanton or use your vehicle for weekend getaways, we recommend following the owner's manual's advice regarding cooling system and radiator maintenance. At EAST BAY AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER, we have seen the impact of ignoring these components' service needs.

If you skip the manufacturer's suggested maintenance on your vehicle's cooling system and radiator, your vehicle's engine may overheat. Unfortunately, negative effects often cascade through connected parts after an engine gets too hot.

Regularly running your engine at a higher temperature than its normal range can cause the head gasket to blow. Subsequently, coolant will mix with your motor oil. That's not desirable for your radiator or your engine. As time passes, your water pump, radiator, engine and other components may all fail. Certainly, staying on schedule with your vehicle's engine cooling and radiator maintenance will cost you less than replacing all of those parts.
