Excellent cooling system performance comfort for your passengers

Car engines will perform better, consume less fuel, and emit fewer emissions when running at the optimal temperature. The heater core, which is part of the cooling system, can provide heat to the passenger compartment during cold weather.

Proper maintenance and an optimal level of coolant in your car help transfer heat away from the engine and prevent overheating. We know how to extend the longevity of your car and make your family enjoy the summer trip.

Cooling Services

Car cooling system repairs questions you may have for us:

Repairing or replacing car cooling system components incorrectly can lead to more serious problems.

It may be possible for a skilled DIYer to fix the problem with the right tools and replacement parts if the leak is minor. GreatYear mechanics suggests having the repair done by a qualified professional to ensure your car is safe.

Simple repairs, such as a hose or thermostat replacement, can be completed in a few hours. More complex problems like a blown head gasket or a cracked engine block can take several days or more to repair. We loan cars to customers while their vehicles are in the shop.

A bad water pump in a car includes overheating, coolant leaks, grinding or whining noises, and steam or smoke coming from the engine are all signs of a failing water pump. We suggest your water pump be inspected and repaired or replaced ASAP when you notice any of the signs.

How do I know my car cooling system is failing?

Steam or smoke coming from under the hood can indicate your car engine is running hot or overheating.

Check coolant leaks under your car or a low coolant level in the reservoir regularly. Any damage to the radiator, cracks on the hose, or a faulty water pump can indicate leakage in the cooling system.

We suggest our customers bring their cars as soon as they see any signs of cooling system failure.

Your car thermostat needs to be in a good shape

It regulates the flow of coolant to the engine based on the temperature.

The engine can overheat or run too cold if the thermostat fails. It might lead to performance problems and reduced fuel efficiency.

The cost of replacing a thermostat in a car in New Westminster, BC can range from approximately $150 to $500. The price may be higher if the vehicle needs other repairs or maintenance in conjunction with the thermostat replacement.

How much does it cost to fix a car cooling system?

It depends on the scope of the problem, cost of parts, and labour.

For example, fixing a minor leaking hose or a faulty thermostat may cost a few hundred dollars. More serious issues like a cracked radiator or a blown head gasket can cost over $1,000 to repair.

As a general guideline, the cost of fixing a car cooling system in New Westminster and Burnaby can range from around $200 to $1,500 or more.
