The cooling system affects the overall dependability and engine longevity of your vehicle. The cooling system keeps the engine from overheating and provides heat in the winter. When the engine’s cooling system starts having trouble in your vehicle, it could lead to severe engine damage and even total engine failure.
Keeping your engine at a safe operating temperature is the main goal of the cooling system. The key parts of the cooling system remove heat from the engine and dissipate it to the air outside. The water pump circulates coolant through the engine. The coolant absorbs heat and returns it to the radiator where heat is dissipated. The thermostat regulates the coolant temperature to keep it consistent for efficient engine operation.
A major indicator that you have a problem with your cooling system is if your temperature gauge on your dash is steadily rising or running hotter than usual. Other indicators you may have a cooling system issue is if you notice any leaks on the ground under your vehicle, notice any strange smells, or have to continually add coolant. It is also a good idea to have a coolant flush performed on your vehicle at the recommended intervals.
