A vehicle's cooling system is designed to protect the engine from the destructive forces of too much heat. If the system isn't in good repair, simple tasks such as sitting idle in rush-hour traffic can cause a vehicle to overheat even when temperatures drop below the freezing mark.

Heat, sometimes expressed as Btus or British thermal units, is the one item that every diesel engine has in abundance. One BTU is the amount of thermal energy necessary to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit.

Established in 1947 as a simple two man radiator shop, today Culpepper Radiator Service is one of the largest radiator and heat exchanger repair facilities on the east coast.
