Is It Time for a Radiator Checkup?

Your car's radiator has a series of tubes through which coolant flows. As air from the engine passes over the tubes, it cools down. The fan pushes the heat away from the engine. If the radiator's gasket, hoses, cap, thermostat or other parts are damaged, your engine could overheat.

The process of combustion causes the car engine to reach temperatures of 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Without a properly functioning radiator, your car's aluminum and rubber parts could melt. Sticking with the car manufacturer's recommendations for coolant flushes and radiator checkups could help you to avoid an overheated engine. An engine that overheats could fail, resulting in expensive repair needs.
