Radiator Repair

Radiator Repair at Mike’s

Radiator Repair in Faribault, MNInternal combustion is basically a bunch of small explosions going off continually – having to contain this will, understandably, make your engine get warm. To cool it down, fluid is passed through your radiator and back around through the engine. If your radiator breaks, your engine will overheat and seize up, potentially destroying your engine. If you see signs of a failing radiator you will want to bring it into Mike’s Garage for our radiator repair or maintenance services.

Thorough cooling system inspections for accurate diagnosis

While your radiator may seem like one single unit, there are plenty of things that can go wrong, and it can affect more than just your radiator itself. When a vehicle is brought in with radiator complaints, our radiator repair process starts with a thorough inspection. We will look at the radiator fins, the pipes and hoses connected to the radiator, the cooling system components throughout the engine, and the fluids that are running through the system. A complete and accurate inspection of all these components ensures that we recommend the correct radiator repairs.

Comprehensive overviews

Our transparent overview of the inspection and recommended radiator repairs shows the customer what needs to be done, why it needs to be done, what it will cost, and how long it will take. This also gives us the chance to answer any questions the owner may have about the upcoming radiator repairs – after all, this is just as much about customer service and educating the customer as it is about doing the correct repairs.

No-pressure repair recommendations

Our technicians at Mike’s Garage will go over the radiator repairs that are vital for the life of your car, as well as the repairs that can wait for a little without harming your vehicle. This helps the owner to figure out their time and their budget, and work only on what they feel they can deal with at the time. We know that vehicle service and repair can seem expensive and daunting, so we promise to never push you into repairs.

Radiator and cooling system repairs performed with quality parts

A service center simply cannot perform good radiator repairs with poor-quality parts, which is why we always use the best in OEM and aftermarket parts. The short-term savings of using parts with lesser quality will end up costing you more in the long run, and that’s just poor customer service. As professionals, we want you to get a long life out of the repairs we make to your vehicle.
