McCullough NAPA Auto Care

A radiator is one of the car engine’s main cooling system components. The radiator works to eliminate heat in the engine by keeping your coolant cool. It will disperse a mixture of coolant with water through its fins to exchange the heat with the air that moves through the radiator. A failing radiator can cause an engine to overheat and malfunction.

When you need radiator repair or replacement in Norcross, Georgia, contact McCullough NAPA Auto Care to diagnose and troubleshoot any problems with your radiator and cooling system.

Signs Your Vehicle Needs Radiator Repair or Replacement

A malfunctioning radiator can lead to all sorts of mechanical issues within your car. The job of the radiator is to keep your engine from overheating. Here are the signs that you have a bad or failing radiator.

1 – Your Engine is Overheating

The radiator is the only component designed to keep your engine cool. If your engine is overheating, especially under normal driving conditions, then you have a failing radiator. The cause can range from low levels of radiator coolant to entire radiator replacement. 

2 – Sludge Build-Up in your Radiator

Radiator fluid is usually green, yellow, orange, or pink. Discolored or rust-colored coolant is a sign of sludge build-up within the radiator. These contaminants can greatly impact cooling performance. 

3 – Leaking and Low Levels of Coolant

Do you constantly find yourself needing to add coolant to your radiator? Perhaps you notice a pool of green, yellow, orange, or pink liquid on the floor beneath your car after it’s been parked for some time. Whether it’s the radiator itself, or a problem with the engine block or a hose, a coolant leak is a sure sign that your radiator needs repair. Our shop can perform a pressure test on your radiator to determine the cause of the coolant leak.

  • Able to fix issue with my 2011 truck other shops could not address- very hard to diagnose mechanical issue another reputable shops couldn’t figure out. Good prices, done on time, and with expert mechanics. Will have them work on all of my vehicles and highly recommended. Support a family owned business for a change!

    My experience was surprisingly excellent. I was greeted immediately before I could actually get out my car. Eric was professional and friendly. Eric Followed up with me has promised. I really like that Eric shares real honest timing/wait expectations.

    My truck broke down when we got to Atlanta on the way to Disney world. A local stopped to help us and recommended this place. This place got me in and got the radiator fixed for a very fair price and on our way the next day very quickly. I was so impressed and it's no surprise they are very busy. Thank you so much and my family all got to the resort and is having a great time!! These people are great and will get your vehicle fixed for a fair price. Plus, you get Napa warranty all over the country at least I did on the repair I got. Please support them!!!

  • Came in for emissions and they exceeded my expectations! Saw headlight out, replaced it. Saw no oil sticker, checked it and put a little in it until i can get back in for change. While waiting you could tell these guys really care about their customers and the safety of their vehicles. Definitely will be coming back here!

    Graham was great and was up front about everything that needed to be done. My son's jeep went down on the Saturday before Memorial Day and they had him ready around 1pm that Thursday. Quick turn around in my eyes. Nice employees, everyone was cordial and friendly.

  • I have used McCullough for maintenance on my prior vehicle and received great service. Recently I had to repair my front bumper - I received an estimate for repair services that was reasonable. The estimated turn around time was less days than other auto shops. The best part was, the staff (Graham) was accommodating with my schedule and the repair was completed as expected/on time. The work completed was great. I absolutely recommended McCullough for auto care services.

    Eric at McCullough has been taking care of my family's [multiple] cars for over 10 years now. A Volkswagen, a Nissan, and 2 Acuras: They've done minor repairs all the way to major transmission replacements. Eric is trustworthy, honest, and tells you what really needs to be done versus what can wait. Their prices seem reasonable (although in fairness I haven't been anywhere else recently b/c I'm so pleased with them), they are timely, and always communicate what the car needs in detail. I can't recommend these guys enough!

  • I know for me one hard thing about choosing a mechanic is brushing off all previous notions I have about mechanics Potentially not treating my car how they would treat their own car. This place has done more than exceed my expectations. I got a phone call for every update, I got a thorough description of what was to be done and what was wrong, not only that, but where the dealership said it would take them two weeks to fix my car, these guys did it in less than 24 hours. I have never been happier to spend $300 in my life. Anything I need in the future, you can be sure I’ll bring it here.

Traveled here from Kansas to apartment shop for my daughter who is relocating and my husband was unable to join A part was dragging under the car so we popped in to see if they could help. They were so kind and helpful. Restored my faith in this world. Good people do exist!!

    McCullough has been my family's go-to mechanic for decades. Don't know what I would do without them - just a super-nice family that will take care of your cars. Their service is important to us because once we get a new car, we like to hold onto it for years (10-12). Highly recommend.

  • After recently moving to the area, I had a vehicle emergency where my transmission needed replacing. Graham immediately took me in and was SO kind, professional, and direct about the costs; one of their kind staff members even drove me home after my car was dropped for repair so that I did not have to call a car service. They were so patient with me and got my car back to me in one day completely fixed and ready to go! I will never use any other automotive repair shop in the area! ABSOLUTELY recommend without hesitation!

  • I own and automotive repair business in Jacksonville, but my wife lives in Atlanta and needed tires for her car, so I know good service and fair pricing in this industry. I chose McCullough because of their good reviews and they did not disappoint. They were very professional and took good care of my wife. I would highly recommend them and will continue to use them for her service needs.

    We have been depending on McCullough's at least since 1997, when we purchased a home only a few blocks away, walking distance really. Had our emissions test a few days ago and want to acknowledge Jack, who completed the tests quickly. I asked him to determine why the backup camera was not in the proper position. It took a bit of time and ingenuity to get everything right. Thanks Jack, for the excellent service.

  • Eric has been my service manager for years. He is always professional and easy to deal with. He goes out of his way to take care of your needs and makes accommodations to the customer when needed. They will ferry me and my car to and from their shop (I live within blocks) and I appreciate that very much. Everyone at McCullough is nice, friendly and helpful.

    Quick and excellent service. I was turned away at my regular mechanic because he said he didn’t know how to do a transmission fluid change. This was my first time ever going to McCullough auto care, and I was very happy with my service. They were able to see me immediately and were patient with me considering the circumstances. Eric was great, and even matched the prices of another mechanic down the road. I will be back! Would recommend!
