Radiator Cooling System

Radiator Cooling System

The cooling system in your car works to keep your engine from overheating, and that is a critical job. If your vehicle overheats, it can mean the death of your engine.

Radiators are heat exchangers used for cooling engines. The radiator transfers the heat from the fluid inside to the air outside, thereby cooling the fluid, which in turn cools the engine. Radiators are also often used to cool automatic transmission fluids, air conditioner refrigerant, intake air, and sometimes to cool motor oil or power steering fluid. Radiators are typically mounted in a position where they receive airflow from the forward movement of the vehicle, such as behind a front grill. Where engines are mid or rear mounted, it is common to mount the radiator behind a front grill to achieve proper airflow, even though this requires long coolant pipes. The radiator may draw air from the flow over the top of the vehicle or from a side mounted grill.
