Natrad provides a specialist repair and maintenance service for your vehicle’s radiator and cooling system. We’ll assess the condition of the radiator and cooling system to determine if any repairs or replacements need to be carried out.
Sometimes all a radiator needs is a good clean out to restore your vehicle’s cooling performance. But if there are any signs of leaks or corrosion present, then a repair or replacement is needed.
Our Radiator Repair Process
We carry out a thorough inspection of your vehicle’s radiator and/or cooling system
The team ascertains whether it’s possible or cost-effective to repair the radiator rather than replace it
The safest answer is no. Not all coolants are compatible. Mixing the wrong coolants can degrade corrosion inhibitor performance and in some cases result in chemical reactions that cause blockages in the cooling system. If you’re uncertain about the specific coolant in your system, it is best to use distilled water for temporary topping up. If draining and replacing coolant, the entire system must be flushed to remove all traces of old coolant.
Can you repair or re-core radiators?
Yes, Natrad has years of experience carrying out radiator repairs for vehicles of all types and sizes. Repairing will depend on the construction materials used and the damage needed to be rectified. Copper and brass can be soldered, but aluminium alloy cannot. Re-cores are available but sometimes it is more cost-effective to completely replace the whole radiator assembly. Contact your local Natrad workshoptoday for advice and pricing options.
Do you fit the radiator?
Yes, we do. Natrad has been installing and repairing radiators for over 30 years. Having an experienced radiator technician complete the installation ensures the job is done correctly with quality parts and workmanship.
Can I fit the radiator myself?
Yes. Natrad can supply you with a radiator to install yourself. However, unless the correct installation procedure is followed, the radiator warranty may be voided.
Do I need a heavy duty radiator for towing?
Most vehicles used for towing will benefit from a cooling upgrade. An upgrade can provide better temperature control for the vehicle’s engine and transmission while protecting it from overheating and damage.
