Know Your Car's Radiator and Cooling System

Your car's cooling system is crucial to keep it running. Engines produce a lot of heat. If your radiator is not circulating water and coolant effectively, your vehicle can quickly overheat. Components of the cooling system include your car's grille and the radiator.

The radiator circulates antifreeze through its cores and dissipates heat through metal fins. This is a very important job because your engine can get up to temperatures of 200F. Always make a note of any issues with your radiator and have them checked out. If your engine is not cooling efficiently and effectively, your car can suffer serious damage. You can blow a head gasket, for example. Your engine could even fail totally.
