Radiator Repairs in Calgary
Have you ever had to pull off the road because steam or smoke was snaking out from under the hood? There’s only one solution—you need to make sure your cooling system is properly cooling the engine before you overheat! If you do experience a problem, bring your vehicle to one of our auto centres for radiator repairs in Calgary.
The radiator has a few functions. Its main job is to act as a heat exchanger for the coolant as well as for vehicles equipped with engine oil cooler lines and transmission lines. If it is very cold outside, the radiator will use hot engine coolant to “warm” both fluids and opposite on hot days, it will help cool heated fluids.
How Often Should My Radiator Be Checked?
We check the radiator, acidity and level of protection against freezing and overheating at every visit you make to Speedy Apollo Auto Service Centres. If we suspect your radiator is acting up, we’ll perform a pinpoint coolant test where we pressurize the system and inspect for leaks, cracks, low coolant, corrosion, thermostat issues, old hoses, and improper coolant ratios.
Avoid stressful car problems by:
- Checking your owner’s manual to see how often your coolant system needs to be flushed
- Bringing your vehicle to Speedy Apollo Auto Service Centres for regular service to keep an eye on your radiator, hoses, and clamps
- Ensuring fluid levels are correct
- Checking heater core
- Water pump for leaks
- Thermostat replacement after coolant flush or replacement of other cooling components
Your coolant should be flushed (replaced) every 2–3 years. You can go as long as 5 years if you have extended-life coolant. Over time, your coolant becomes more acidic. This can damage gaskets, hoses, and other components in your radiator and engine and lead to leaks. By doing a walk around inspection every few trips, looking under your car for signs of leaks, or looking inside for a visual inspection of the level of coolant, you could prevent severe damages. Call us first for your radiator repair in Calgary!
Air Conditioning Repairs in Calgary
There’s nothing worse than being stuck in traffic on a hot day when the AC in your car is not working. Various problems can debilitate your car’s air conditioner, and the best way to avoid them is through preventative maintenance. Visit our auto centres at the start of winter and summer to have you vehicle’s heater and air conditioner checked so you don’t face the unpleasant surprise of a malfunction when you turn it on for the first time.
Speedy Apollo Auto Service Centres employs some of the best professionals in the business. Our customers trust our service because we do it right the first time, every time. We’re the preferred auto air conditioning repairs shop for Calgary residents because we understand the importance of educating customers on how to identify problems with the heating and air conditioning units in their vehicles.
For instance, did you know that if your heater is blowing cooler air, it could mean that your thermostat is stuck open, or your heater core may be plugged? It’s a good idea to have your heating and air conditioning systems checked by a technician even when they seem to be running fine—preventative maintenance can help you avoid bigger costs in the future.
Our expert technicians here at Speedy Apollo can diagnose any problem and perform any auto air conditioning repairs in Calgary you might need. If your car is exhibiting signs of a faulty heater or air conditioner, contact us. We’re glad to help and answer any questions!

I recently brought my GTI into Speedy Apollo for some welding while I was having my transmission repaired. I just wanted to compliment you on the great welding work you did on my car. I have had no issues with the work completed, and to this day it still holds perfectly. So great job, and if I ever need a mechanic in the future I know exactly where to take my car- To Rick at Speedy Apollo on 58th Ave!
I been having my vehicles serviced here for many years. They are always very professional, providing quotes of repairs required, suggesting options and listen to my concerns. They have never tried to “up-sell” me in anyway, even offering me cost saving advise. I travel from the Crowsnest area of Southern Alberta back to Calgary to have my service done at this location simply because I trust their work! Thanks again Ellery and Sheldon for the 5 Star service!!
My friend Carl had referred me to Speedy Apollo in Bowness as he has had his service done at your shop for 20 years now. He said you were honest, accurate and fair. My car has never run better than since you did the tune-up and fixed my brakes. Your step-by-step explanation took the stress out of a stressful situation for me. Great value for fair dollars, I couldn’t be happier. Thank you David, I’ve found my new shop.
