      I have been coming to MIA for 15 years and have always been treated fairly with care of my vehicle being priority one here. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and always have a smile. I will continue to go there as long as Ron and Cory are there.

      I had an engine issue the day before. Took the vehicle F-150 to Mid Island Automotive first thing next morning with no appointment. Met Cory in the parking lot, asked me what was wrong. Told him, he asked for my keys and the vehicle was repaired that day. Really Awesome Service, as usual! Thank You Mid […]

Cooling Systems Repair

Last week I was out running errands in Nanaimo and my temperature warning light came on – total panic! I pulled over and my car was overheating. After it cooled down, I went right in to my Nanaimo service center to have them take a look. My appreciative Mid Island Automotive Repairs Ltd tech told me my water pump was leaking and needed to be replaced. He said water pumps just wear out and that you need to replace them because they pump the coolant that cools the engine.

He told me they checked out my radiator hoses, serpentine belt and tensioner and that they were OK. But I was overdue for changing my coolant – like, embarrassingly overdue. I didn’t realize there was a schedule in my automobile manufacturer owner’s manual for when to change my coolant. My appreciative Mid Island Automotive Repairs Ltd service professional said that the coolant actually becomes corrosive over time and could damage my radiator, head gaskets, intake manifold gaskets, heater core, metal cooling pipes, expansion (frost) plugs, etc. That’s why Mid Island Automotive Repairs Ltd recommends changing the fluid on schedule.

So, the Mid Island Automotive Repairs Ltd tech replaced the coolant with the kind my automobile manufacturer recommends – I learned there are different kinds of coolant and you need to use the right one – and I was on my way. It feels good knowing my cooling system is healthy and I don’t need to worry about it.
