Cooling Systems minimize heat temperatures to assist all additional engine components work effectively. Inside your engine, spark plugs ignite the gas within the engine cylinders to generate small explosions which move your automobile down the road. These small explosions generate burning temperatures that may damage your engine, if not controlled.
Your vehicle’s cooling system is responsible for reducing the temperature inside your engine and preventing possible overheating.
With most cooling systems, a liquid coolant is sent by means of passages in the engine and takes in the heat given off by the engine. When it relocates down the rubber tubes, it is cooled by the air coming by means of the vehicle’s grill. There are many vital parts that enter a cooling system, and we can check all of them. The cooling system consists of a cooling fan, water pump, thermostat, radiator, heater core, heater valve, and various other parts that primarily work together to dissipate and remove heat from a vehicle’s engine.
When the engine reaches maximum operating temperatures, the thermostat opens and releases antifreeze from the engine to the radiator, which initiates the circulatory flow to absorb excess heat. The antifreeze is also responsible for keeping other engine fluids from boiling or freezing. After the antifreeze flows through the engine, it cycles back to the radiator, where the excess heat escapes through the radiator’s walls. The antifreeze is cooled by the cooling fan and readied to be re-released into the engine to dissipate additional heat.
Benefits of Cooling System Repair
Over time, antifreeze breaks down and loses its efficiency. If not drained and replaced, old antifreeze can lead to corrosion. During a cooling system flush and fill, our staff will drain the antifreeze from the radiator, flush the cooling system, and fill the radiator with new antifreeze. The cooling system’s cooling fan circulates air through the radiator and passes excess heat out of the engine. If the cooling fan malfunctions, your vehicle’s engine will overheat.
Eventually your automobile’s cooling system will develop scale deposits which restrict coolant circulation and will require your cooling system to be flushed. Having a correctly educated specialist carry out normal examinations will guarantee your car remains effectively cooled and working for many years to come. To keep your car cooling system in proper working order it is important to remember the following:
What We Do
During an inspection of the cooling system service, our experts will check the cooling fan for damage and the fan belt for cracks. Because the radiator is responsible for cooling the antifreeze as it circulates throughout the cooling system, a leak or a broken radiator hose can lead to major engine failure. A radiator pressure test is one way we can check for potential leaks or radiator damage. Ultimately, neglecting basic cooling system and radiator maintenance can lead to a potential radiator replacement and major engine or radiator repairs down the road.
