The Function of Your Cooling System in a Nutshell
- Your car's engine produces heat just shy of the boiling point, which makes it necessary to have a fully functional cooling system to keep it within the prescribed temperature.
- To remove the heat, the engine uses several components and fluid which includes antifreeze / coolant, radiator and radiator fans, water pump, pressure cap and expansion tank, temperature switch, head gasket, heater core, hoses, and thermostat.
- The water pump spins with the help of the belts which are connected to the main engine. The main objective of the pump is to circulate the coolant through the pipes and engine to the radiator. The radiator fans chill the returning coolant.
- In case of excessive pressure, the radiator cap opens a valve and allows the coolant to flow through an overflow pipe. Similarly, the temperature switch keeps an eye on the temperature and switches on the fans as and when required.
- The entire cooling system keeps the engine functioning and the temperature maintained as many engine parts can not handle the excess heat. A small failure in any of the cooling components could lead to a potential failure of the engine.
