The radiator is part of your SUV, truck, van or car’s cooling system. It carries coolant throughout your engine to collect and redistribute excess heat.
After travelling through the car thermostat, the coolant moves through a hose and into the radiator. If this doesn’t occur, you need a professional auto radiator repair at 12th Street Auto Care Center.
The coolant goes through the core tubes of your car’s radiator to cool down. Because of its aluminum design, the heat is removed through the broad area of the radiator’s cooling fins. A radiator fan assists to better control the air circulation.
The radiator cap, due to high pressure in the radiator, raises the boiling point of the coolant. Should the pressure become excessive, the radiator pressure cap will allow the coolant to overflow into the radiator overflow tank, or coolant reservoir. After the coolant has lost ample heat, it is recycled back into the engine cooling system.
This process is meticulous, and any one part that fails will affect the others. When you notice your engine overheating, call 12th Street Auto Care Center, your local Sioux Falls, SD auto repair shop, for an affordable radiator repair.
