Your vehicle's radiator helps keep your engine cool. Overheated engines can lead to numerous problems, including eventual breakdowns. The radiator sits at the front of the engine bay; it's made up of slim, hollow channels that run between the inlet and outlet tanks.
Coolant pumps through tubes to the engine, where it is warmed. Once the coolant reaches the engine, it goes to the radiator, which is constructed to cool the flowing liquid using the air passing the radiator. The cooled liquid cycles back through the engine, where it absorbs more heat. This cycle allows the engine to keep working at ideal temperatures.
We know that time is important when it comes to most radiator repairs so we have expanded our inventory to carry the most common radiator cores. There are multiple radiator types (Kenworth, Freightliner, Mack, Peterbuilt, etc.) that require the "core" of the radiator to be replaced.
We keep a "better than OE" core in stock that comes with reinforced headers, an extra row of tubes, and dead-end corners that help prevent corner tube leaks. In the need of a radiator re-core give us a call with your make and model and schedule your radiator to be recored and restored!
Charge Air Coolers or Intercoolers help cool compressed air generated from the turbo. Whereas radiators leak coolant, CACs (Charge Air Coolers) leak air, making pin-hole leaks more difficult to find.
Charge Air Coolers should be cleaned, rebuilt or replaced any time the radiator is removed from an over the road truck. These units can and should be serviced regularly. Our Heavy Duty staff regularly rebuilds the all-aluminum charge air coolers used on many different applications, at a significant cost savings.
We can clean and flush out CACs in case of turbo failure and check for leaks. Leaks in the CAC can cause a loss of power and decrease fuel mileage. We offer complete rebuilds as well as minor repairs.
We also carry aftermarket replacement Charge Air Coolers in stock for quick turn around on hundreds of over the road trucks.
