Why maintaining your AC System is very important:

The heating and A/C systems in your vehicle can wear down and fail over time with regular usage of your vehicle. This can occur from hose pipes clogging and dripping if not serviced, which can lead to the lack of efficiency when it comes to cooling and heating your cabin. The best way to keep this system running at its best is to have your A/C system regularly serviced here at Oswald Service.

Coolant System Flush

The cooling system of your vehicle has an important job. It helps to transfer heat from the engine through the radiator fans in order to prevent your engine from overheating. Over time, the coolant can become dirty and less effective, which can lead to engine troubles. To ensure that your cooling system is always working at its best, it is important to have regular coolant system flushes performed on your vehicle. Call 208-522-1566 in Idaho Falls or 208-356-7777 in Rexburg or visit Oswald Service for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. 

Belts

The fan belt is also known as a drive belt inside of your car’s engine. This drive belt connects your car engine to the front accessories. It will rotate the water pump and engine fan in order to keep the engine cool and prevent it from overheating. Belts tend to dry out over time and can begin to crack and fray. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Oswald Service and Repair for all your vehicle's repair needs.

Quality belts should be used for these replacements and this service should always be performed by professionals. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Oswald Service and Repair today. The mechanics at Oswald Service and Repair will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

Hoses

The job of hoses inside of your vehicle is to transfer antifreeze and coolant throughout your vehicle’s engine cooling system in order to prevent any overheating from happening to engine components. Hoses can rust and become corroded over time, especially in extreme climates. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Oswald Service and Repair for all your vehicle's repair needs.

Our shop uses the best products to ensure that your hoses are replaced with quality parts and our work is always performed by professionals. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Oswald Service and Repair today. The mechanics at Oswald Service and Repair will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

Radiators

The radiator is basically a heat exchanger inside of your vehicle’s engine. A radiator cools the engine by circulating engine coolant through the engine block - it then loses heat to the atmosphere through radiation. The radiator is made up of a number of hoses in which engine coolant will travel through. If the radiator fails, the heat that your engine produces will not be able to be cooled and damage to your engine will occur. A regular radiator inspection and service will help prevent this from happening. To have your radiator needs handled by experts, visit Oswald Service and Repair today.

Radiator Flush

The job of the radiator is to keep your vehicle’s engine cool and help protect it from the heat it gives off while running. In order to work properly, it is important that the radiator is kept clean. Over time, the radiator can become clogged and dirty which can diminish its performance. This will end up hurting your vehicle’s engine which can be costly to repair. A radiator flush should be a part of your vehicle’s regular maintenance and is recommended as outlined in your vehicle's owner’s manual. For all your radiator flush needs, call 208-522-1566 in Idaho Falls or 208-356-7777 in Rexburg or visit Oswald Service today.
