If you are facing recurrent engine overheating issues, chances are the radiator is not cooling efficiently or has gone kaput. But you shouldn’t be worried because this is not something that can’t be fixed in a day. Our goal is to get you back on the road in as little time as possible and we make that possible with quick diagnosis and repairs.
We specialise in repairing the core of the radiator and can also replace it if required. Same goes for the tank in case it has a leakage. However, sometimes the problem goes away with a good clean out, which is cost-effective and highly recommended for heavy duty trucks every 6 months to 1 year.
We can tailor our radiator repairs in Brisbane to your convenience. You can bring in your truck or just the radiator to our workshop, or we can come to you anywhere in Brisbane.
How to know that there’s something wrong with your radiator?
One of the telltale signs of an inefficient radiator is the overheating issue. If your truck overheats, 90% of the time, it’s the faulty radiator. There could be a leakage in the radiator tank, due to which you are losing coolant frequently, or the radiator cap might not be maintaining the desired pressure to keep the coolant inside the tank.
Whatever may be the problem, we have the solution.
Car & Truck Radiator Mechanic in Brisbane
The purpose of a radiator is to limit the engine’s heat to its optimum threshold, whether it’s a car or a truck. Fundamentally, a car’s radiator is similar to a truck’s radiator. Thanks to their universal design, radiators can be repaired regardless of which vehicle they belong to.
Maxwell Tyre & Mechanical specialises in repairing all types of radiators. We have years of experience, knowledge and the right set of tools to perform radiator repairs to dealership standards. Once we fix the radiator, we run an overheating check until we are confident that the radiator is cooling efficiently.
Sometimes the core of the radiator catches rust and develops leaks here and there. Our first measure is to fix it, but in case that doesn’t work out well, we will replace the core. Replacing the core is a cost-effective alternative to replacing the whole radiator. That way, we can get your radiator to function like new at a fraction of the cost.
Most car owners make the mistake of driving without coolant and using tap water instead. This accelerates corrosion inside the core, which gradually eats away at the tubes and develops leaks. If the fins of the radiator are laden with dirt and debris, the radiator won’t be able to breathe properly, which again leads to overheating.
Therefore, it is recommended to have your radiator inspected during routine service so that the mechanic can catch any potential issue and save you from expensive repairs.
