What Our Customers Say
‘I write as a very grateful customer of Natrad, Port Macquarie NSW. I called in with major cooling problems while on my way to Mackay QLD, towing a trailer-load of household items for my son. Phil at Natrad treated me like family. He dropped everything and went straight to work on my Commodore. In just 3 hours the entire cooling system was fixed. I am so happy with the treatment I received. Many thanks for your great work!’
‘I have a small transport company running two Freightliner Argosy trucks from Melbourne to Brisbane. Cooling issues were crippling my business until I found my way to Natrad HDS. After replacing the radiators with complete assemblies at a cost of approximately $6000 – the results were amazing. My business has saved a massive $14,000 on fuel per truck, every year, which has hugely impacted my company’s bottom line. I would strongly recommend Natrad HDS to any operator or driver of on-highway trucks in Australia.'

Why Choose Natrad?
- What is an engine cooling system?
An engine cooling system prevents your vehicle from overheating. If the engine temperature drops too low, your vehicle will churn through more fuel. If it rises too high, for too long, the engine can be damaged or destroyed.
A cooling system is made up of a:
- Radiator and radiator cap to control the pressure within the system
- Water pump to circulate coolant
- Connecting hoses for coolant transfer
An engine cooling system works by passing coolant from the engine to the radiator. As the coolant moves through these parts, it absorbs heat from the engine.
The warm fluid is then passed through a rubber hose to the radiator, where it is air-cooled before returning to the engine to collect more heat.
- What types of vehicles can you provide cooling system repairs for?
Natrad cooling specialists have repaired cooling systems for a wide range of vehicles including cars, 4WDs, trucks, motorbikes, and heavy machinery.
- Can you repair or replace all parts of my vehicle's cooling system?
Yes, we can. Natrad’s cooling system repairs service only uses strong and long-lasting cooling parts sourced from Australian and international manufacturers. Our range of replacement cooling parts includes fans, tanks, thermostats, oil coolers, caps, clamps, and hoses.
- Can I get extra cooling performance?
Natrad’s standard replacement radiators and cores meet or exceed OE specifications. Extra cooling performance is available by choosing an upgraded radiator or core design. As cooling specialists, Natrad can advise the best selection for your vehicle’s application.
- How often should I get my cooling system checked and repaired?
It really depends on how often you drive your vehicle and the tasks it’s performing. All cooling system parts eventually become worn and need replacing. If your vehicle’s cooling system is under-performing or isn’t working the way it should, then it’s always a good idea to book it in for an inspection and service.
