How To Shop For A Quality Radiator
Did you know having a good quality radiator can prevent engine blow up. Many may not know this. Every vehicle should have a good radiator, how bad would it be if you’re stuck on the highway with a blown out engine. Think about that.
Radiators are used to disperse the heat that the coolant has absorbed from the engine. The radiator contains a vertical or horizontal tubing section that is connected between two tanks. They are designed to hold a large amount of water in tubes and passages that give it contact with the atmosphere.
Did you know while your driving your car, it creates enough heat to destroy itself? The radiators job it to protect it from damage, such as over heating. If you check on your radiator regularly you will be able to see if theirs anything wrong with it. As your car gets older it is more prone to problems.
If your radiator heats up the first thing you should do is turn off your air conditioning.
It will bring down the temperature of your engine. Then you would turn on the heater and set it on the highest temperature. This cools the engine down through the transfer of heat to the air. If you were in traffic you should pull over to the side and open your hood. It will help cool off the engine. You should then check the overflow tank coolant level. If it’s empty then the radiator can be low on coolant. You can then check the pressure of the system by wrapping a cloth round the upper radiator and squeeze it.
By checking your radiators from time to time you might be able to prevent your engine from blowing. Doing this little task can save you from a bigger head ache down the road.
