Cooling system neglect is cited as a principal reason for mechanical failure of a vehicle. In addition to the danger and inconvenience of a breakdown, the damage to the engine and transmission can add up to thousands of dollars. Discovering a leaking radiator, hose connection, a sticking thermostat or other cooling system component that s on "borrowed time" can save the life of one s engine. Additionally, overheating can damage valve guides, scuff pistons, crask cylinder heads, and crush head gaskets.
Import Performance knows that once a cooling system suffers long-term neglect, it turns into an on-going source of problems. Once corrosion takes place, the damage is difficult to reverse.
