Radiator and Cooling System
Did you know that overheating is the most common cause of mechanical breakdowns of any vehicle on the road? And that overheating can cause severe damage to the engine and the transmission system? Maintaining your vehicle’s radiator, fluids and cooling system are essential to keeping you and your vehicle safe on the road.
The Function of Coolant System in a Vehicle
Coolant protects the engine from overheating and from freezing. Its effectiveness can diminish over time and lose many of its protective properties, causing your radiator to rust and corrode. The cooling system itself can get blocked with built-up deposits from oil, grease, scale, hose decomposition and other materials.
For the cooling system, check the manufacturer’s guide to see the recommended interval for radiator replacement or coolant replacement in your vehicle but you’ll want to come to Singh’s Tyre and Auto Centre now if you have any of the following symptoms:
- The car is recently heated
- The coolant or temperature light comes on.
- The temperature gauge reads higher or lower than usual value
- Your heater does not work
The radiator is the core part of any vehicle’s cooling system. It is responsible for reducing the heat generated from the coolant circulating through your vehicle’s cooling system. If the coolant is not maintained becomes acidic over time and degrades the internals of your cooling system. This results in the basic break-down of hoses, gaskets and belts. Fixing these one-off leaks could be a short-term solution for a much larger problem. The good news is radiator replacement, and coolant flushes can avoid these issues at the recommended intervals by the vehicle’s manufacturer.
