The cooling system

Your vehicle’s cooling system is composed of several different parts that are linked together by a network of rubber or metal hoses. The basic components are as follows:

  • The coolant
  • which is at the heart of the system
  • as it circulates from one part to another
  • The expansion tank
  • which holds the coolant
  • The temperature sensor
  • which measures the temperature of the coolant
  • The thermostat
  • which opens and closes access to the system
  • The radiator
  • which expels the heat stored in the coolant
  • The radiator fan
  • which provides supplemental air
  • if needed

The role of the radiator

The radiator is essential in ensuring that your vehicle functions correctly. It cools the engine to prevent overheating and other serious problems.

While the engine is running, it generates heat. The radiator, which is located at the very front of the vehicle to optimize air intake, is responsible for dissipating this heat. The air that passes through the metal fins of the radiator eliminates the heat that has accumulated in the coolant, which has been circulating through the hoses. Once the liquid has been cooled again, it returns to the engine to keep it cool.

To prevent leaks or damage, we recommend having your radiator checked and cleaned regularly, approximately once a year.

Signs of a defective radiator

If your automobile’s radiator is worn out or isn’t working properly, it can cause various kinds of damage to the engine and cooling system.

There are several indications that your vehicle’s radiator isn’t working correctly. Here are some of the most common ones:

  • Leaking coolant
  • Sludge in the radiator
  • Rust-colored liquid
  • Consistently low levels of coolant (you should refill it regularly)
  • Vehicle temperature gauge quickly rising above normal
  • Cracks in the radiator hose or damage to the fins
  • One side of the radiator is hot
  • while the other is cold
