    New Car Stay Rods in Hamilton

    What is a stay rod?

    New Stay Rods in Hamilton NZ

    The radiator is an important part of any vehicle. It provides your engine with coolant, preventing it from overheating. In classic and hot-rod cars, stay rods are used to hold the radiator in place. The stay rod secures the radiator by connecting to solid mounting points. This prevents the radiator assembly coming loose or being damaged while you are driving.
    How does the radiator work?

    Over time, stay rods can be prone to bending or breaking due to the large amounts of force they are often subject to. For this reason, modern cars do not use stay rods. Instead, they use improved radiator support systems which hold the radiator in place with bushings and/or brackets.

    A damaged stay rod should be repaired or replaced sooner rather than later. This is because it can damage the radiator and lead to more expensive repairs.

     

    Symptoms of a damaged stay rod:

    Rattling noise while driving – A loose stay rod can produce a rattling noise while you drive. This noise will sound from the front of your car.

    Radiator not mounted correctly – If your car’s radiator appears to be loose, tilted to one side or falling out of place, a faulty stay rod may be to blame.

    Coolant leaks – If you notice coolant leaking from your car, a faulty stay rod may have lead to your radiator becoming damaged and leaking. Coolant leaks should be fixed as soon as possible before the lack of coolant causes your engine to overheat.

    Overheating engine – A damaged stay rod can damage the radiator or affect its ability to send coolant to your engine. This will result in your engine reaching higher temperatures. If you suspect that your engine is overheating, pull over as soon as possible to prevent engine damage.
