Understanding your Radiator and Cooling System
The job of your radiator is to keep coolant flowing throughout your engine. If there’s a block or a leak, your engine can quickly overheat and your vehicle will break down.
Cracked or ill-fitting hoses or a hole in the radiator itself causes coolant leaks. Radiator metal is thin and easily damaged, but the number one cause of coolant leaks is corrosion. The number one cause of corrosion is a lack of routine maintenance. Did you know that overheating is the most common cause of mechanical breakdowns on the road? And that overheating can cause severe damage to the engine and the transmission? Maintaining your vehicle’s radiator, fluids and cooling system is essential to keeping you and your old friend on the road.
Coolant (anti-freeze) protects your engine from overheating and from freezing. The coolant’s effectiveness can diminish over time and lose many of its protective properties causing your radiator to rust and corrode. The cooling system itself can get clogged with built-up deposits from oil, grease, scale, hose decomposition, and other materials.
Most drivers know it’s recommended that a vehicle’s oil should be changed about every 3,000 miles. Drivers typically don’t realize, however, about the proper intervals for changing their vehicle’s other vital fluids. For the cooling system, the coolant/antifreeze manufacturers recommend changing the coolant once a year and some service manuals stipulate flushing and refilling the radiator every 24 months, regardless of mileage. Check your car’s owner manual to see the recommended interval for changing the coolant in your vehicle, but you’ll want to get it changed at minimum every 24 months. That’s why it’s so important to see the Radiator and Cooling system repair technicians at Park Muffler.
