Radiator Repair


Having a radiator that runs properly can help prevent overheating during summer and getting too cold in winter.


Radiators are one of the most essential parts of any vehicle. They function as the temperature maintenance system for your automobile. Without a radiator and the antifreeze in it, your engine would overheat.


The necessity of radiators can be seen when cars end up overheated on the side of the road. Newer vehicles tend to have more efficient radiators and can keep your engine at a safe temperature. Keeping your radiator healthy is necessary for the functioning of your automobile.


Maintaining proper coolant levels is essential because low levels can lead to overheating or corrosion on your radiator fins. A coolant flush is also a good idea every two years.


Water Star Motors wants to keep you and your vehicle off the side of the road. Our award-winning shop has mechanics who are experts in radiator maintenance and repair. Stop by our location today to give your radiator the service it deserves.
