Cooling System Service in Rocklin and Sacramento

Do you have a coolant leak, a leaking or noisy water pump? Or did the lube tech at the quick lube tell you that you have a leaking or swollen radiator hose?

Maintaining a properly functioning cooling system is crucial for the longevity of your engine. Even a small coolant leak can lead to air pockets in the system, which can accumulate around the temperature sensor, giving false temperature readings. This means your engine could be running hot without you realizing it until serious damage is done. Timely repairs for minor issues are key to avoiding more extensive and costly repairs down the line.

At Jack Dane Auto Service in Rocklin and Sacramento, we start by conducting an inspection. Our diagnostic process includes a pressure test and a chemical block test to gather as much information as possible before proceeding with repairs. We want to avoid situations where after repairing a coolant leak, we still have overheating due to preexisting damage. Professional testing helps us prevent such issues.

Cooling systems are designed to operate under pressure, typically around 16 psi, to raise the boiling point of the coolant. We simulate this pressure using specialized tools to inspect for leaks, making it easier to identify and address them. This process is known as a pressure test.

When an engine overheats, it can cause damage, especially if it's low on coolant and the overheating goes unnoticed. We conduct a test for carbon monoxide in the cooling system to check for engine faults, such as a compromised head gasket, which can be noted by exhaust gas entering the cooling system. This block test helps us identify hidden damage before proceeding with repairs. While not 100% accurate, it provides valuable information similar to cancer testing—if it comes back positive, we know there is at least some degree of engine compromise, helping you make informed decisions about repairs.

At Jack Dane Auto Service, we stand by our work with a comprehensive warranty of 24 months or 24,000 miles. Our commitment to quality is evident in the parts we use and the expertise of our ASE-certified technicians. We continuously train and update our skills to provide you with the best service possible.
