Car engine cooling system failures rank among the top three causes of roadside breakdowns in Australia, with radiator failures accounting for a large percentage of these.

A fully functional radiator and cooling system is essential in preventing overheating, which can cause expensive breakdowns and may result in serious engine damage. Modern engines also operate more efficiently within specific temperature ranges.

Not all cooling system failures are explosive in nature; in most cases it's a slow process that may start with you noticing puddles under the car or having to top off the coolant level regularly. These are often signs your radiator may be leaking.

The temperature gauge may indicate a high coolant temperature in slow traffic but returns to normal during high speed driving. In some cases, you may notice a sweetish, “hot water” smell coming from the engine, or even notice actual steam coming from under the bonnet. All these symptoms are serious and should not be ignored.

Do I need a cooling system check?

All Repco Authorised Service centres employ highly trained technicians who are qualified to spot and correct problems which not only affect radiators, but all parts and components of modern engine cooling systems.

When you have your cooling system inspected at a Repco Authorised Service centre, you gain the peace of mind that comes with knowing your vehicle's cooling system is up to the task of keeping your engine running at optimal temperatures.

Below are some commonly asked questions about radiators and cooling systems:

  1. What causes a radiator to fail?
  2. What is stray current?
  3. Why is my car's coolant milky?
  4. Why are there black flecks in the coolant?
  5. What happens if I don't replace my leaking radiator?
  6. What is a radiator flush and do I need one?
  7. How do I check my car's cooling system?

We answer them here or you can speak with Cleve 4WD & Camping Centre for a cooling system check.
