Cooling Systems

Cooling Systems

The cooling system is essential to keep your engine from getting so hot that the parts start to melt. The engine has passages throughout it that let the coolant, a combination of water and other ingredients, flow through it, picking up the heat and moving it to the radiator where the heat dissipates into the atmosphere and the cooler fluid recirculates back through the engine again and again. The Water Pump is what keeps the fluid moving. The Thermostat monitors the temperature of the coolant and controls when the coolant needs to go cool the engine. Connecting all these units are Radiator Hoses. They must be inspected regularly to make sure they are not wearing and about to leak. If they do, the coolant will drain out and your engine can dangerously overheat.
