Signs that your car radiator and cooling system need repairing
If your car seems to overheat easily despite only driving short distances, there is something wrong with your cooling system. If your car temperature is running colder than usual this also indicates there is a problem with your cooling system. If the radiator Expansion Tank (Coolant Reservoir) is full, but the radiator is low, this is a sure sign that there is a problem that will risk your engine experiencing serious damage and costly repairs.
Radiator hoses and cooling system hoses harden with age, and over time will allow coolant to weep from the hose risking your engine. If your vehicle sits unused, if you’re sitting in stop-start traffic, or if you are planning a long trip, make sure to have your radiator checked and serviced regularly to avoid mishaps on the road.
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
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.
A: Regular servicing with a skilled mechanic who checks for leaks, coolant levels every service. Check coolant levels in your radiator, not just the expansion tank often during Australia’s Summer, check your dash temperature gauge while you driving, and changing the coolant completely as recommended by the manufacturer.
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 and there is reduced coolant in the system.
