The COOLING SYSTEM keeps our engine from overheating while you are driving around. Its job is to move heat away from the engine.
The RADIATOR is the part most everyone associates with the cooling system. Coolant flows through the radiator which has fine cooling fins that draw the heat out of the coolant and dissipate it into the air. To make sure there's enough airflow over the radiator, a fan pulls air over the cooling fins even when the car is idling. In some vehicles, the fan is powered by the serpentine belt. On others, an electric motor runs the fan. Electric fans turn on and off as needed. You may have heard the fan kick on shortly after you turn your car off. The sensor has determined that the engine needs a little help cooling down to a safe temperature.
A hose connects the radiator to the water pump. The water pump pushes the water into the engine block. Now the engine block and cylinder heads have passages for the coolant to pass through without getting into the oil or the combustion chamber. These passages are referred to as the "water jacket".
While the coolant is passing through the water jacket, it absorbs heat from the engine on its way to the radiator for cooling. Between the engine and the radiator is a gatekeeper called the thermostat. The thermostat's job is to regulate the temperature of the engine just like your home thermostat regulates the temperature of your house. It gets your engine up to the correct operating temperature and then keeps it from overheating.
When your first start the engine, it's very cold and needs to warm up. So the thermostat blocks the flow of coolant to the radiator. As the engine warms up, the thermostat starts to let coolant flow through the system.

Coolant System Flush
A car's air conditioning system contains a coolant which transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the a/c coolant becomes old and dirty. The old coolant will negatively impact the system's performance. To make sure the system is working effectively, consider having a regular coolant system flush. A coolant flush is basic maintenance for your car's cooling system. Call 702-644-1233 or visit Auto Lab LLC in North Las Vegas, NV 89030 for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. Ensure maximum performance from your vehicle's heating and cooling systems today.
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Auto Lab LLC for all your vehicle's repair needs.
You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Auto Lab LLC today. The mechanics at Auto Lab LLC will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Auto Lab LLC for all your vehicle's repair needs.

Radiators are heat exchangers for cooling your car's internal combustion engine. A radiator cools the engine by circulating an engine coolant through the engine block - it then loses the heat to the atmosphere through radiation. A radiator has a set of tubes through which the engine coolant flows. Fins surround these tubes. When the radiator fails, the excess heat produced by the engine could damage the engine components. To prevent this from happening, have your radiator serviced regularly. To have your radiator needs handled by experts, visit Auto Lab LLC today.
A radiator is the part of your vehicle that keeps the engine cool and protects it from excessive heating. To be cool, the radiator needs to remain clean - always. With time, sludge, rust and other solid deposits build up inside your car's radiator. These make the cooling system become clogged and less effective. This in effect hurts your vehicle's performance. A regular radiator flush is enough to keep the system in shape. For this reason, make radiator flushing a part of your routine car maintenance schedule. For all your radiator flush needs, call 702-644-1233 or visit Auto Lab LLC today.

Solid mechanic Mike has diagnosed my car problems & timely work
Great work. Replaced a suction line I brought in to fix my a/c no questions asked. Did a leak check. Vehicle is back to perfect!
Very friendly, family run business. Mike is such a great mechanic and helpful person. I know I can trust them when these guys work on my car.
Good experience in my two trips to autolab so far. Once for a parts replacement and another for routine maintenance. Will be returning for additional maintenance needs in the near future.
One thing I like about this place is you get to actually talk and deal with the owner/mechanic MIKE . That a big plus unlike the other "BIG NAME" chains in the valley where its not as personal . He checked and replaced my fuses for FREE . You don't get that kind of service at other places . I bet if you really was in need and didn't have enough cash he would work with you somehow .
Mike is the only auto mechanic I trust. He's an expert in his field and he's fair.
e went to see Mike over a month ago for wheel bearings and he did a great job. Last week, our oil pan was leaking and we went back to him. Great job again and good prices.
Went to get my AC fixed. It took me a while to take my car to a mechanic because I believed it would be really expensive to fix the AC. I was in and out in less than two hours and spent a lot less than I expected. Great service.
Mike got my A/C fixed in one day. I had no A/C for almost a year due to unreasonable prices. Mike fixed my A/C to ice cold at a very fair price. I would highly recommend him to you so you could get the best out of your vehicle. After this experience I look forward to making future business with Mike.
