The Basics Behind Heating System Diagnostic Services at Michigan Auto and Tire

The heating device for your car removes excess heat from the engine through a combination of water and antifreeze called a coolant. Hoses bring the coolant from the engine to the radiator, where the outside heat is expelled. The heating system circulates the hot coolant through the dashboard to the heater heart, which channels the warm air into the interior compartment of your car. This process relies on the heater hoses that hold the coolant from the engine to the center of the radiator, where heat will eventually warm up the inside of your vehicle. Components of the heating system include the heater fan, water pump, thermostat, heater hoses and the central heater. These components control the engine and vehicle cabin internal temperatures. The water pump drives the engine block to the coolant. Coolant flows from the cylinder heads to the center of the radiator, where the radiator fan guides the outflow of warm air into the vehicle cabin. If the heat from the coolant is transferred to the engine, the coolant returns to the water pump where it continues to flow through the device. Our service staff must inspect all functioning components for evaluation and will identify the issue during a heating system operation.

Why Should You Have Heating System Diagnostic Services Performed at Michigan Auto and Tire ?

Repairs to the heating systems can be attributed to mechanical and electrical issues. Stains below the dashboard’s passenger side are signs of coolant leakage which can result from a corroded heater core or cracks in the heater hoses. Often the cause of problems with the heater system is hard to find, which is why diagnosis of a heating system might be important. Our service personnel can inspect the heater heart, blower motor, heater control valve, water pump, thermostat, and other components during our diagnostic heating system. We may also test your coolant levels, inspect your heater control valves, or test your blower motor for trouble. By the end of a diagnostic heating test, our service staff would have isolated the heating system problem, repaired the component, and returned the heating system to full functionality. If your heating system fails next time, just give us a call or email us.
