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 Tucker, 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.
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

The technicians are excellent, very experienced, and the customer service is great. Everything was explained in detail so that I would understand.

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.

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.

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 had a check engine light on Saturday afternoon, ended up being an engine coil pack needing to be replaced. It was obviously super busy and I knew I would need to leave it until Monday to get looked at. Staff was very informative and communication was excellent. Got it looked at Monday and ordered necessary part to come in the next day. Went ahead and did the spark plugs as well since I was nearing 60k miles. Picked it up after lunch with no issues. Seems like they do really well with the small space provided and very busy area right off 285

This place is a life saver. Great communication, great service, and very professional people. Eric worked with me through my whole repair. Kept me updated through out the process and fixed the problem on my car at a fair price. I will definitely make this my new place to go for all my car repairs and maintenance needs, along with sending my friends their way.

I have an older vehicle so I see these folks more than my wallet likes. They are amazing, friendly, people that are a pleasure to work with. I can't recommend them enough.

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

This is the best place you could possibly go to take care of your car! My family and I have been going here for over 15 years and we recommend them to everyone. Eric, Bryan, and Graham are the most trustworthy guys and truly care about their customers. We all love them and are so thankful we found them!!
October 12, 2021
I really cannot count the number of times these brothers have taken care of me, my family and all our various vehicles. We have been loyal customers for more than 20 years! They have done everything we have needed on cars, trailers, used car evaluations for purchase, tank drops, and all the basics. They are very trustworthy and will give you a honest answer on everything and a reasonable estimate on what it will cost to resolve it. They are super busy, so plan to wait a day or two longer than you might somewhere else, but it is worth it!

Eric and his staff were great and helpful. The pricing was fair, and they let us know every step of the way what was wrong and what needed to be changed.

Extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and professional people. Would definitely go here again if I was in the area and needed them!

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!

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!

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!

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!!!

I have recommended McCullough's several times to my neighbors in the neighborhood blog. I have used this company for many years and they are always helpful. It is great to have a garage you can trust.

My experience here was great! Fast, curious, and fairly priced. I didn't think a repair shop like this existed. I'll be a lifelong customer.
August 6, 2020
What more is there to say? These guys are amazing. Their service is very thorough and quick. I was so worried about the cost of my repair but Eric and Brian put me at ease with their extremely reasonable prices! My truck is running like it's brand new again and I can't thank these guys enough!

The absolute best of the best. I won’t go to anyone else. I’ve been using them 16 years and I’ll use them for 16 more. Eric is a delight!

Honest experts . affordable compared to other places . Only place that was willing to work on my subaru head gasket and other axle work from maybe 5 places I went to .

This place is exactly the kind of service you come to expect. Great service, timely, and they never assume I don’t know what I’m talking about because I’m a girl.

They figured out the issue with my Pathfinder and made the repair quickly. Eric is very thorough and kept me up to date the entire time. This was my first time using them but I will use them again!

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.

Very respectful, honest, and professional. I was having issues with my headlights, and they fixed it for a reasonable price. They do a lot to ensure that you have a positive experience, and that you're not wasting your money on unnecessary parts or repairs. Top notch service, A+!
