We can diagnose, repair, and maintain your vehicle’s cooling system, preventing overheating issues and costly engine damage


A Brisbane summer is a true test of a car’s cooling system, with the hot weather often the cause behind overheating and cooling system issues. While most vehicles stand up well to the heat, they still require regular maintenance and avoid expensive engine damage.

At Motormech, our skilled mechanics specialise in cooling system services. Whether it’s diagnosing and repairing cooling issues or performing routine maintenance, we are committed to providing high-quality services to keep your engine running cool and prevent overheating.

Symptoms of Cooling System Problems

While your car’s electrical, braking, or exhaust systems may give plenty of advance warning of problems, noticing a cooling system issue may be difficult until it’s already too late. At the same time, there are some common things to look for. If any of the following signs are present, then contact Motormech and arrange a service to avoid more serious damage:

  • Coloured fluids coming from the engine
  • Worn appearance of radiator hoses
  • Erratic temperature gauge readings
  • Steam coming through vents into the car’s cabin
  • Strange, burning engine smells

Preventative Maintenance

Motormech recommends a bit of proactive maintenance to keep those issues to a minimum.

Firstly, check the cooling fluid levels on a regular basis and change the fluid out about once every one or two years (your owner’s manual will have exact specifications). This coolant is responsible for keeping temperatures down in your engine and can wear down over time, thus necessitating the change.

The best practice for older cars that haven’t had a cooling fluid change in several years is to have a complete flush done. This will help remove any blockages that could be preventing the fluid from reaching parts of the engine.

If you experience any signs of cooling system problems, it is important to have your vehicle inspected by a qualified mechanic. Routine maintenance, such as coolant flushes, hose inspections, and thermostat checks, should be performed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
