I have been going to TLC for over ten years & never had a bad experience. Pete and the rest of the staff have always been professional, courteous and thorough. Their work is superlative.

I highly recommend them.

How important is a vehicle’s radiator?

Your vehicle’s radiator is an integral part of the engine’s cooling system. But that’s not all it does. Despite the name, the cooling system does more than keeping your engine cool. It also prevents corrosion in vital engine components and contains anti-freeze to prevent your engine from freezing in the winter. The radiator holds and cools the engine’s coolant, preventing dangerous overheating. The coolant also provides heat for your vehicle’s heater.


If you have a leaking radiator, your engine (and your comfort) could be at risk. Leaking coolant could cause the engine to overheat, or prevent coolant from getting to the heater, leaving you and your passengers in the cold.

I was travelling and had a problem with the generator on my RV. Matt and the service techs at TLC got me in the day after I called and got it repaired in two hours, at a very fair cost. I stumbled into TLC after RV service outfits told me it would be a week to ten weeks before they could even look at my problem. I can't say enough about how well they took care of me.

Common Signs You need a radiator replacement

Radiator problems can be caused by many things such as age, corrosion, or even road debris damaging the cooling system. If you notice one or more of the following symptoms, it’s time to bring your car or truck in for a radiator service.

Here are some of the signs that you might need to contact us:

What else gets checked when my radiator is serviced?

The radiator must always work properly to prevent your vehicle from overheating. To ensure that your radiator works perfectly, our technicians will look at several different things including: 
The fan behind the radiator cools the antifreeze mixture as it enters the radiator. If the radiator fan isn’t working properly, the car can overheat when parked or in traffic.
Road debris such as dirt, grime, and litter can get stuck in the radiator, blocking the airflow and causing poor radiator performance. Our technicians will check for obstructions and remove them ensuring your radiator gets the airflow it needs.
The hoses which connect the radiator to the engine can sometimes become old and crack with age, causing leaks.
Although modern radiators are built to be rust-resistant, they can still get corroded. If the coolant is not properly mixed with water or is too old, it can begin to cause corrosion in the radiator and cause leaks. Some radiators also have plastic parts that can age due to the heat of the engine and crack, causing leaks. Sometimes these leaks can be repaired. Other times, the only solution is a radiator replacement.

Winter Protection and Comfort

When you have your coolant flushed and replaced, you prevent the risk of radiator corrosion. This keeps your radiator lasting longer, protects against the elements, and improves the efficiency of your car’s heater.

Peace of Mind

A minor radiator leak that needs topping up can be a minor headache, which becomes a big one if the leak gets bigger. When you bring in your vehicle for a radiator inspection and service, our technicians will make sure that your radiator doesn’t leave you stranded or leave you needing bigger expensive repairs later on.

Save Money

A vehicle that is overheating due to radiator issues will run less efficiently than a properly-tuned one. Add in the cost of radiator coolant and increased fuel consumption, and the cost of simply topping up a leaking radiator adds up.

How often do radiators need to be replaced?

Radiator replacement intervals depend on the type of vehicle and driving conditions. Typically, a radiator will need replacement at approximately 80,000 miles or 10 years of age. Radiators don’t age like brake pads or engine belts, but the repeated heating and cooling cycles of the radiator will eventually cause cracks and leaks in the plastic parts of the radiator.


If a radiator hasn’t been well maintained, old coolant can cause corrosion or sludge and result in pre-mature radiator failure
