Keep Cool and Steady With Radiator Service

If the temperature in an engine rises too high, crucial parts of the engine can become damaged. Your vehicle’s cooling system and radiator are designed to keep your engine at the proper temperature.

As the engine burns fuel, it produces heat which needs to be removed. The cooling system sends coolant through the engine, pulling the heat away and bringing it to the radiator. The radiator transfers the heat to the surrounding air. If heat isn’t being removed properly from the engine, expensive components like the head gaskets can become badly damaged and the engine can fail.

James Watt came up with the theory to illustrate to customers the great performance of his engines which he achieved by comparing them with the ability of a horse to pull a certain amount of weight per minute. i.e. One horse can perform 33,000 foot-pounds of work every minute.

In addition to that, horsepower is a reliable measure of an engine’s overall ability to do work (the maximum power that an engine can put out). Hence, rating a car’s engine performance is subsequently easy and effective.

Let Us Maintain Your Car with Regular Oil Changes

In the past, an oil change was one of those things they taught every new car owner. Over the years, however, the one-size-fits-all nature of American cars has given way to ever-increasing specialization and ever-shrinking access in the engine compartment. Unfortunately, the need to keep up on oil changes has increased.

 

Today's smaller engines run a lot hotter. This breaks down oil even faster. Advancements in motor oil formulas have helped keep up the pace, but running a modern engine on old oil can cause serious problems if it overheats even one time.
