Intercooler Repair


Intercoolers are also known as "Charge Air Coolers" or "aftercoolers". Intercooler repair is one of our most commonly requested services because intercooolers are on nearly every diesel on the road today. Today's diesels are more powerful than ever. One of the ways they have achieved this is through turbocharging. For your engine to maintain maximum performance, the charge air cooler or intercooler must be maintained in top condition.

A leaking charge air cooler/intercooler is a sign that you’re in need of intercooler repair immediately, otherwise your fuel mileage will be reduced significantly. With today's ever increasing fuel cost, a poorly functioning charge air cooler can end up costing thousands in wasted fuel. In addition to the reduction in fuel economy, power will also be significantly reduced.

Signs That You’re In Need Of Intercooler Repair:

  • Loss of Power
  • Increase in Fuel Consumption
  • Whistling noise from engine
  • Black smoke coming from exhaust stacks
  • Turbo Charger failure
  • Elevated engine temperature

S&F Radiator is fully equipped to handle all your intercooler repair needs. Our process ensures that you receive a quality product that will bring your equipment back to the level of performance you demand.


Our intercooler repair service comes complete with a full cleaning. A high pressure stream is applied externally to remove built up dirt, grime and salt residue. Internally, a special solution is applied to remove any foreign material or oil residue that may be present. This results in a clean core that allows maximum airflow and heat transfer.


Our intercooler repair service is not complete until your unit is fully tested. Units are pressure tested for any leaks that may be present. Any leaks are then repaired if possible. Although OEM units allow a leak tolerance of up to 5%, we have a 0% leak tolerance to ensure maximum performance.

Largest Inventory of New Intercoolers

If you intercooler is unable to be serviced or repaired, S&F Radiator has the largest inventory of new Charge Air Coolers in the area. Our standard construction units carry a 2 year warranty.

For extreme duty applications, we have our extreme duty charge air coolers that come with a LIFETIME WARRANTY. We have thousands of these units on the roads and have never had a failure. Most models available. Ask your S&F Radiator representative for more info.


If your intercooler is not available new, we can Recore your unit to factory specifications. In the recore process, we take your intercooler and remove the end tanks. The core is disposed of and replaced with a new core that meets or exceeds OEM specifications. The core is then welded on to the tanks and you have a unit that performs and is guaranteed as new.
