Radiator Repair: A Hot Topic for Your Vehicle
Keep Your Cool—Actually, Your Auto’s Cool
Your vehicle’s engine generates a lot of heat. First, it makes power using internal combustion which is a series of controlled explosions. Second, as parts move against one another, they create friction, another source of heat. Just when your car is headed for a meltdown, your radiator saves the day, cooling the fluid that absorbs heat from the engine. Therefore, it’s important to ensure that your radiator is in good working order. For that, rely on Tires Too in Londonderry, New Hampshire, for radiator repair.

Hot Off the Press: All About Your Radiator
As coolant circulates through your auto’s engine, it absorbs and removes heat from the engine block. The heated fluid then travels to the radiator where it can dispense the heat it has collected. The radiator has fins to ensure maximum exposure to external air. This design allows the greatest amount of heat to dissipate. Also, a fan sends extra air across the radiator to allow even more heat to escape. With a lowered temperature, the coolant returns to the engine to absorb more heat and repair the cycle. This process works well mile after mile, but there are a few issues that can impede your vehicle’s ability to cool itself. For example, a hose that transports the coolant can develop a leak, allowing the fluid level to become too low to satisfactorily do its job. Another issue can occur if the flow of fluid is obstructed. The interior channels of the radiator are quite narrow. Over time, the radiator can begin to rust or mineral deposits can form, blocking the passages. Further, a water pump is necessary to move the coolant around so that it can complete the cooling cycle. If the pump fails, it will need to be replaced to prevent your car from running hot. The thermostat detects coolant temperature, allowing fluid to enter the radiator. If the thermostat goes bad, it cannot direct the fluid appropriately, keeping the radiator from doing its job. When any of these problems occur, your car will likely overheat as indicated by your dashboard temperature gauge. If you continue to drive, you can cause extensive damage and eventually catastrophic engine failure.
