Here are some tips to help you avoid having to find a car repair shop in Metairie-New Orleans to fix your radiator.
One of the most common unwelcome sounds a driver can hear is SSSSSSSsssssss, especially when you can see steam coming out from under the hood and smell something damp and sweet. You glance down and, sure enough (as if there was any doubt), your engine light is on telling you your car is running hot. You pull over to the side to wait for a tow because driving it will cause major engine damage.
You can’t always avoid troubles with your car’s cooling system. But there are some things you can do to help avoid most of them by catching problems before they become major and you find yourself waiting for a tow to the nearest car repair shop. The top four tips for avoiding issues with your cooling system, according to carsdirect.com:
- Always check fluid levels.
- Regularly drain and flush your radiator.
- Check radiator caps and hoses.
- Periodically check the radiator overflow tank.
If you’d rather be at the Marvel Universe LIVE! event (comic books heroes battling villains, who can resist?) at the Smoothie King Center than checking engine parts, there’s a solution. Bring your car or truck by one of Twin Tire and Auto Care’s three locations in Harvey, Hammond or Marrero to let our ASE-certified auto technicians check out your radiator and other engine systems. (We also have a location in Harahan for heavy trucks.) Twin Tire has been the most trusted auto repair and tire sales shop in the Metairie-New Orleans area for more than 41 years. And if your car or truck does have a problem, we have a $25 gift certificate for our customers to use whatever way they want (except on a conventional oil change.) You have until Jan. 31 to use it and it can’t be combined with any other offer.
