Repairing Your Overheating Engine


Repairing Your Overheating Engine

When the weather is warm, we rely on our car’s cooling system to keep temperatures in the engine compartment under control, and keep us on the road. Your cooling system is a series of components that circulate coolant through the engine to absorb heat, then circulate air around the coolant to get it out. If any part of the system stops working, you’re on the side of the road while your engine takes a steam bath.

The best medicine is preventive. You should flush your radiator on schedule to keep the system clean and well flowing. Unfortunately we aren’t always lucky, and things go wrong. Let us help you figure out why your car or truck is running hot or overheating.

if your engine is overheating shortly after you leave, or it heats up even on short trips, you should check the following possible causes and repair suggestions.

Stranded in Chester


I was driving to Chester from Birkenhead when my car started to act up. Since we were arriving in Chester at 5PM on a Tuesday we thought for sure we wouldn’t find anyone who would be willing to look at, diagnose then fix our car by the time we had to leave the next day.

 

Ellesmere Port Engine Centre lived up to their name and really helped us out! We called at 5PM and they agreed to come and pick up the car. They promised to look at it first thing the next morning since they knew we had to get back to Birkenhead. One of the mechanics even gave my husband a ride back to our hotel out of kindness.

 

Ellesmere Port Engine Centre stayed true to their word and had our car fixed by noon the next day. They really saved the day and kept us from being stranded in Chester! I would recommend them to anyone. They were absolutely wonderful- oh, and the car is doing great now!”
