Radiator & Cooling

Cooling system failure due to a radiator leak is the biggest cause of engine breakdowns on the road. If you have noticed coolant leaking from the front of your car then your car radiator needs some attention. In emergency situations, the ‘Radiator Stop Leak’ additive fixes the problem but this is only a temporary solution.

Without a functioning cooling system, your engine generates a heat that is great enough to damage the components of the engine itself. Aluminium heads can warp. Head gaskets can blow. Your vehicles engine can fail, and you and your family can be left stranded. If your vehicle happens to overheat, the cooling system should be inspected and radiator repairs started as soon as possible.

At Southern Cross Automotive Repairs, you can count on our professional radiator service to help keep your car’s cooling system from the hoses to the water pump, operating safely and efficiently.

A Little Maintenance Goes A Long Way

A little maintenance can go a long way in preventing a potentially expensive engine problem and a lot of inconvenience for you and your family. If your engine is running hot, or if your vehicle has recently overheated, our certified technicians are happy to inspect your vehicle and diagnose any issues, as well as carry out all necessary repairs.

Signs That Your Car Engine Is Overheating

  • Your dashboard’s temperature gauge rises
  • Steam billows out from under the hood
  • You hear noises from around your engine

If you notice your dashboard’s temperature gauge rising, steam billowing out from under the hood or you hear noises from around your engine, stop driving immediately. Do not attempt to open the radiator pressure cap until your vehicle’s engine and radiator has completely cooled down. Our technicians can perform a detailed inspection to determine exactly what needs fixing.
