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 Smyrna, 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.

  • 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!

    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.

  • Eric and Company are a first class operation! They get it right the first time in every time! They will pick me up and drop me off to make it 100 times more convenient. They treat me like family and look after my best interest not just their bottom line! These are the kind of people that I value doing business with

    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!

    Great customer service! Eric and team did an awesome job coordinating their busy schedule with the schedule of my girlfriend and myself so that we would have a car during the work week and then trade off cars when the other was ready. They are extremely friendly and it felt like they had us as the customer in mind. Highly recommend!

    Had experienced front tire damage hitting metal debris on I-285 just before Rosewll exit. Immediately exited on Roswell and saw NAPA sign and pulled in. Place was busy! But got attention immediately by Jeff service worker. Got tire off my car no waiting. Wow! Determined rim bent but tire still good. He could have sold me a new tire and i would have not known better. So appreciative. Then met with Eric McCullough and quickly arranged to have rim fixed. I decided on new tires for safety and were worn. Eric got me great deal on tires and had my car fixed SAME day. Eric runs a super customer-focused operation. Kudos! Bruce Fike

  • I would normally recommend this business as I have been here a few times. I went there Friday for an oil change. However, I honestly didn't feel safe. They have signs that customers must wear a mask. There was only one employee wearing a mask themselves. All the others didn't have a mask on. I feel this is disrespectful to their customers. I understand it can be uncomfortable but it is essential during these times.

    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.

  • 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.

    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 received great service from this location! I called them about replacing a serpentine belt and they got it done for me the very next morning. It was quick, and cheaper than some other places that I had called for the same service. Eric and his team did a great job, and they were very nice! I will definitely return for any other auto repair I may need in the future.

  • I have used McCullough Auto Care for more than10 years. I needed a reliable auto maintenance service because I commuted weekly to Birmingham. One of the nice things about these guys is they listen when I mention an issue with the car, go over their inspection results of my car and review my bill in detail. I have never been disappointed in their service or the cost of the service I received.

    Eric was amazing from start to finish. I chose this shop for my repair based on previous reviews & I'm glad I did. He made sure to, in my opinion, go above and beyond with his politeness, as well as helping to make the process smooth and to try to save me as many coins as he could, while still getting done what was needed. Very happy with this visit
