Automotive heating is often neglected in the warm San Leandro weather, but a malfunctioning heating system can cause more than just an inconvenience. At Doral’s Auto Repair we offer full service automotive heating repair in San Leandro.
Your vehicle’s heating system consists of a radiator, heater hoses, blower fan, electric motor to drive the fan, heater core, and a thermostat. Failure of any one of these components could put the heating process in jeopardy.
Though generally the automotive heating system is more reliable than the A/C system, if your vehicle has heating issues, the negative consequences of neglect could be much more costly.
As you vehicle ages, a leaking heater hose might become a problem. Electric blower motor issues can also occur, though these are usually easy to notice (no warm air!) and are easy to fix.
The consequences of more serious auto heating system problems can be particularly severe if the heater core gets clogged (a common heating system problem). A clogged heater core could cause the engine to overheat, which in turn can result in very costly engine repairs. A faulty heater core can also leak coolant into the interior of the vehicle.
So if your car’s heating system is not functioning correctly or is misbehaving in any way, we recommend bringing your vehicle to Doral’s Auto Repair as soon as possible. Our nationally ASE certified mechanics will inspect the heating system and let you know what, if anything, needs to be repaired.
