Santa Monica Motors offers a wide variety of cooling and heating system repairs. Because the heating and cooling systems of your car are so complex, they require routine maintenance for increased seasonal performance and operation.
Heating system issues may stem from mechanical or electrical problems. We can carry out a heating system diagnostic to check for any issues. During this series of tests, our service staff inspects the heater core, blower motor, heater control valve, water pump, thermostat, and other components. We may also check your coolant levels, inspect your heater control valves, or troubleshoot your blower motor.
The cooling system of your vehicle consists of a cooling fan, water pump, thermostat, radiator, heater core, heater valve, and various other parts that work together to dissipate and remove heat from a vehicle’s engine. Your vehicle’s cooling system is responsible for reducing the temperature inside your engine and preventing overheating. Over time, antifreeze breaks down and loses its efficiency. During a cooling system check, our staff will drain the antifreeze from the radiator, flush the cooling system, and fill the radiator with new antifreeze.
Another area of concern is the cooling system fan. The fan circulates air through the radiator and passes excess heat out of the engine. If the cooling fan malfunctions, your vehicle’s engine will overheat. During an inspection of the cooling system, our experts will check the cooling fan to make sure it is operating correctly.
