Car cooling system

Cooling System

Did you know that overheating is the most common cause of mechanical breakdowns on Sydney roads? Your cooling system plays a fundamental part in your vehicle’s performance. Without it, your engine would overheat, and some parts might even begin to melt, causing severe damage to the engine and automatic transmission. Maintaining your vehicle’s radiator, fluids, and cooling system are essential to keeping your car on the road.

Reasons to check your Antifreeze/Coolant

  • Your vehicle has recently overheated
  • Your coolant or temperature light comes on
  • Your temperature gauge reads higher or lower than normal
  • Your heater does not work

Cooling Fan

A cooling fan circulates air through the radiator to release engine heat into the surrounding air. The fans can be mechanical or electric; however, your engine can quickly overheat if the cooling fan malfunctions.

Our technicians will inspect your cooling fan and make sure the drive belt, or fan belt that makes it turn, is not loose or cracked. We also repair and replace damaged fans.

Radiator Cap

A radiator cap should be inspected at least once a year. If a cap is taken off while the engine is still hot it could result in severe burns from the spray of boiling coolant.

Coolant Reservoir

The coolant reservoir indicates the level of coolant in the system. At KarPro, we check this during every oil change or Log Book service.
