A radiator is like a series of veins that conducts heat from the inside and allows outside air to carry it away. Today’s radiators are made of plastic and they are built to last about 10 years. But with proper maintenance, they can last longer! If the cooling system deteriorates or fails, you can very quickly destroy your engine.

What are some signs that your vehicle needs a radiator repair or replacement?
Leaking fluid – if see a bright green, orange or pink colored liquid on your driveway.
Rising gauge - not just leaking, also can get clogged (modern radiators have super skinny flow tubes so get clogged easily and often must be replaced because the tubules are so thin you can't flush them clean).
Rust and discoloration – on your radiator and the surrounding engine components is a sure sign of a leak.
Lack of preventative maintenance – Check your car manual and make sure you are getting regular coolant flushes to prevent a leak.
Coolant should generally be replaced every three years, as the anti-corrosion components break down, just like additives in engine oil fade. Once rust or other corrosion starts inside the engine, you can't stop it from spreading.
