Water Pump- Circulates coolant throughout the engine and radiator.
Radiator- Holding and cooling reservoir, stores coolant when vehicle is sitting, when the engine is running the coolant is pumped through the radiator core. Allowing the coolant to be cooled by air.
Cooling Fan- Forces air though the radiator to reduce coolant temperature when the vehicle comes up to temperature.
Thermostat- Closes off coolant to the engine in warm up, as well as allows the engine to reach operating temperature prior to opening and allowing the coolant to circulate.
Heater Core- is a radiator-like device used in heating the cabin of the vehicle. Hot coolant from the engine is passed through a winding tube of the core, a heat exchanger between coolant and cabin air.
Engine Cooling System
Is your engine overheating? Come see us.
Not surprisingly, your engine’s combustion process generates heat. What you might find surprising is that, without a functioning cooling system, your engine’s heat is great enough to damage the components of the engine itself. Aluminum heads can warp. Head gaskets can blow. Engines can fail. And you and your family can be left stranded. Which is why if your car overheats, the cooling system should be inspected and repaired immediately.
Count on us to help keep your car’s cooling system operating safely and efficiently. We recommend having coolant replacement performed according to your car’s factory-recommended maintenance schedule. This regular maintenance of your vehicle’s cooling system can help avoid costly repair services. And help keep you safe.
