Signs that your car radiator and cooling system need replacement
If your car seems to overheat easily despite only driving short distances, there is something wrong with your cooling system. A car’s temperature running colder than usual is another indicator that there is a problem with your cooling system. Another sign is that if the radiator Expansion Tank (Coolant Reservoir) is full, but the radiator is low. These are all problems that will risk your engine experiencing serious damage and costly repairs.
Radiator hoses and cooling system hoses harden with age. In the long run, this will allow coolant to weep from the hose risking your engine. Therefore, if your vehicle sits unused, or if you’re sitting in stop-start traffic, bring your car for a check to avoid mishaps on the road.
For example, here are some signs to indicate there could be an issue with your vehicle radiator or cooling system:
- Coolant stains in the engine bay
- Engine fan running more than normal
- Expansion (reservoir) tank full but radiator level low
- Expansion (reservoir) tank level low or discoloured
- Coolant discolouration or not changed at the manufacturer’s specified times
- Engine temperature rising faster than usual or overheating
- Engine temperature below normal or slow to reach operating temperature
- Interior heater (dash) not blowing hot

Radiators & Cooling Systems
Q: What does a car radiator do?
A: A radiator is responsible for reducing the temperature of the coolant in your vehicle. The coolant absorbs the heat from the engine block as it is pumped around the motor and through the radiator to prevent the engine from overheating. If your engine temperature gauge is quick to reach operating temperature (on short drives, in cool conditions), or gets too hot (above operating temp) bring your vehicle to a Midland Tune and Service Centre for a radiator check.
Q: How can I make sure my radiator runs without any issues?
A: Regular servicing with a skilled mechanic who checks for leaks, coolant levels every service. Check coolant levels in your radiator and not just the expansion tank. Your dash’s temperature gauge should also be checked while you drive. Change the coolant completely as recommended by the manufacturer.
Q: What are the signs of a damaged radiator?
A: When your vehicle is overheating or if your internal dash heater is not working properly, your cooling system is likely to be damaged. This could be caused by a damaged radiator or damage to water pumps, thermostats, hoses or leaks. Reduced coolant in the system can also be the cause. Come to Midland Tune & Service Centre to correctly diagnose any issues and for repairs to your Cooling system.
Q: How long does the average radiator last?
A: An average radiator can last up to 8 years. With regular Servicing of your vehicle wear and aging, issues are identified during the Service. At Midland Tune & Service Centre we check for any signs of leaks, and damage every service not just when you already have a problem.
