|RADIATORS: Coolant takes away the heat produced by internal combustion. The radiator channels the heat away from the coolant in order to keep the metal parts within the engine from overheating. Passages inside the radiator are connected to fins, which wick away heat from the coolant and send it away from the engine compartment.Hot coolant travels through the maze within the radiator, and then returns to the engine considerably cooler through the miracle of heat transfer.
In order for this miracle to take place, all the components of the cooling system must be in good working order. Hoses, gaskets, clamps, radiator, thermostat, fan or fans, water pump, radiator cap and the coolant itself must all be in top condition to keep the motor from over heating.
|A regular check of coolant level will indicate if the system is holding its own. Check the coolant only when the engine is cold, and on a level surface by removing the radiator cap and peering inside the filler neck.
Never open a cooling system when the engine is hot, or even warm.
