The Basics Behind Description of Cooling System Repair Services at Michigan Auto and Tire
The cooling system consists of a cooling fan, water pump, thermostat, radiator, core heater, heater valve, and various other parts which primarily work together to dissipate and remove heat from the engine of a vehicle. The cooling system for your car is responsible for reducing the temperature inside your engine and preventing potential overheating. Excess heat can build up in your vehicle’s engine in a number of locations. The thermostat opens and removes antifreeze from the engine to the radiator when the engine reaches full operating temperatures, which initiates the circulatory cycle to absorb excess heat. Antifreeze is also responsible for holding off the boiling or freezing of other engine fluids. This travels back to the radiator after the antifreeze passes through the pump, where the excess heat flees through the walls of the radiator. The antifreeze is cooled by the cooling fan and ready to be released back into the engine for additional heat dissipation.
Why Should You Have Description of Cooling System Repair Services Performed at Michigan Auto and Tire?
Antifreeze breaks down over time and is losing its effectiveness. Old antifreeze can cause corrosion if not drained and replaced. During a flush and fill cooling system our workers must remove the radiator antifreeze, flush the cooling system, and fill the radiator with fresh antifreeze. The cooling fan of the cooling system circulates air through the radiator and discharges excess heat from the engine. If the cooling fan fails, the engine in your car will overheat. Our experts will check the cooling fan for damage during a cooling system service test, and the fan belt for cracks. Since the radiator is responsible for cooling the antifreeze as it circulates in the cooling system, a leakage or a damaged radiator hose may result in significant engine failure. One way we can search for possible leaks or damage to the radiator is through a radiator pressure test. Eventually, neglecting simple cooling systems and maintenance of radiators will lead to possible replacement of radiators and significant downstream repairs of engines or radiators.
