At Hendrick Volvo Cars of Charleston, our service team always welcomes the opportunity to help Charleston, SC drivers take care of their vehicles. Your vehicle's cooling system is what keeps your vehicle from overheating, which is why it's vital to keep up with engine cooling and radiator services.

A working cooling system will effectively circulate coolant and move heat away from the engine. There are several components to your vehicle's coolant system that include the radiator, radiator cap, radiator hoses, thermostat, and water pump.

The radiator has tubes, which are referred to as the core, where the coolant flows. The core is surrounded by cooling fins that dissipate heat. It's important to have your radiator flushed to keep your car from overheating. Your owner's manual will tell you how often to have your radiator flushed, but if you notice a puddle of coolant under your vehicle, it's best to have it looked at as soon as possible.
