Steaming radiator of a vehicle

Volkswagen Radiator Repairs Summit, NJ

Is your Volkswagen running hotter than normal? Do you notice a slimy bright green, pink, or yellow liquid on the ground where your Volkswagen is parked? There is a good chance that your radiator could have a crack somewhere and it should be fixed as soon as possible! A cracked radiator that is ignored could put your engine in danger of overheating and causing some expensive damage. 

While Volkswagen vehicles boast the finest craftsmanship when it comes to architecture and mechanics, cracks can occur in the radiator as they would in any other vehicle on the road. There are several things that can cause those cracks, including rust, a faulty thermostat, and a leaking head gasket. Extreme temperatures have also been known to create cracks in the radiator – and after that nasty polar vortex that we experienced this past winter where temperatures plunged to 50 below zero when the windchill is accounted for – it wouldn’t surprise us if there is an upswing in cracked radiators for many drivers.
