Looking for Auto Heating Service & Repair?
Our Columbia, MO Auto Repair Experts Have You Covered
When you live in Columbia or the surrounding area, maintaining your car’s heating system is important. In January, our average temperature is only 29.7°F and sometimes, at nighttime, we can experience lows of sub-0°F. We also average 18 inches of snow between December and March. The point is: When the cold strikes, you have to be prepared or you may experience significant discomfort.
If your heating is acting up, call us to request an appointment.
Maintenance of Heating System and Warning Signs for Repair
Not only is a functional heating system important for your comfort level , it is also important for other reasons including:
- It helps your engine and transmission function efficiently (thus ensuring a smooth ride).
- It helps you maintain fuel efficiency.
- It helps your entire powertrain work well (not just your engine and transmission, but also your drive shaft, suspension, and wheels).
It is recommended you have your heating and cooling system checked out every 12 months. These signs can indicate that there is an issue with your heating system and that your car needs to be serviced immediately:
- There is a musty smell whenever the heater is activated.
- There is steam coming from your engine compartment.
- There are unusual smells inside or outside of your vehicle.
Other warning flags include inadequate heating or if your vehicle temperature gauge indicates a “red” condition.
What can Custom Complete Automotive do for me?
To determine the problem, we can take a look at all of your heating system components such as the heater fan, thermostat, water pump, hoses, blower motor, control valve, and core. We will also inspect your coolant levels. If you are experiencing heater troubles, it could be because of low coolant levels. Leaking coolant can cause a damaged heater core, radiator, heater hose, or cooling system. With over 40 years of industry experience, Custom Complete Automotive is who you can turn to for top-of-the-line heating and other high-quality and professional automotive services.
With our aid, you can enjoy a much more pleasant ride. For the peace of mind you deserve, schedule your checkup and repair services with our ASE and CCA certified team.
