Why Your Vehicle Needs Engine Cooling & Radiator Service

Your vehicle's engine produces a lot of heat. Thousands of degrees, as a matter of fact. With all of this heat trapped under the hood, a properly functioning cooling system is imperative.

The cooling system works much like the human body's circulatory system. Coolant, also known as anti-freeze, travels through a system of hoses that is powered by the water pump. The coolant cycles through the radiator which uses cooling fins to allow the coolant to release the heat it has absorbed from the engine. After that, it goes in for another round.

As long as the cooling system is contained at the appropriate pressure, the engine will maintain operational temperatures. Once the cooling system is compromised, the engine becomes susceptible to damage and even total failure. This costs a lot of money to fix.

Instead of paying out thousands of dollars for a new engine, take your vehicle to your local dealership and have them check your cooling system regularly.
