Engine Heating & Cooling Systems

Schedule Service

If your vehicle’s heating and cooling systems are malfunctioning, it can result in your engine overheating or not running as fuel efficiently and cleanly as it should. If your engine is too hot for too long, it may become seriously damaged.

Preventive maintenance is key to keeping your vehicle’s heating and cooling systems functioning correctly. Your VIP Certified Automotive Professional will check the water and coolant level in your vehicle’s radiator, inspect its cooling system for leaks, and check its thermostat and hoses.

  • VIP offers a warranty on most installed parts.
  • VIP stands behind our work with a labor warranty that matches the warranty on installed parts.

If your engine temperature warning light goes on, doing the following may help:

If your engine’s temperature continues to rise:

  • Safely drive to the right side of the road
  • Stop your vehicle
  • Turn off the engine
  • Open the hood and wait for the engine to cool off
  • Do NOT open the radiator cap or add water until the engine is completely cooled
