As cars become more technologically advanced, the importance of your vehicle’s battery becomes continually more important. In the old days, a car battery essentially worked or it didn’t; if it was good enough to start the car, it was good enough. Moderns vehicles are a different story. A faulty battery can cause a variety of issues, including engine codes, sensor failures, irregular transmission behavior, and the list goes on. Battery failure often causes issues that are commonly misdiagnosed, and in the hands of the wrong auto repair shop, a mechanic may spend hundreds of your hard earned dollars chasing problems that don’t exist. At Intercourse Automotive 4X4 in Intercourse, our mechanics are ASE certified and familiar with modern vehicles and the problems that accompany them.

I like the color green myself, but I tell our Intercourse drivers that when you see it on the ground by your car or truck, it is a BAD SIGN! First, be sure to gauge how much of it is on the ground and remember if your car or truck has been parked overnight, what you see could be a HINT of what has really leaked out. This beautiful green color is your antifreeze on the ground vs in your vehicle where it belongs and your radiator.
We tell our Intercourse drivers to call us immediately here at Intercourse Automotive 4X4 if they have a radiator - antifreeze leak like this as it could mean extreme damage if they try to drive that car or truck should there be enough of a leak and the engine overheats completely. Here it is all about keeping you safe and those repair bills down so you can continue to drive your favorite car or truck and get on with your daily activities. Talk to our team of experienced mechanics any time you have a question about your vehicle maintenance or engine performance. Something as small as as antifreeze could save you serious money.
NOTE: It is poisonous for animals (see pets information here) and people alike (see information for people here) so don't leave it on the ground. Antifreeze was developed to overcome the shortcomings of water as a heat transfer fluid in your engine keeping it from over heating.
2nd NOTE: DO NOT EVER OPEN THE RADIATOR CAP WHEN THE VEHICLE IS HOT OR EVEN WARM - THE FLUID IS HIGHLY PRESSURIZED.
