What is the cooling system?
In simple terms, a vehicles’ cooling system consists of components that manage and maintain the engine’s temperature, regardless of factors such as ambient temperature and operating conditions like road speed.
Major deviations on either side of an engines ideal operating temperature can cause serious engine damage.
In modern vehicles many manufacturers have adopted engine technologies that rely heavily on the engine temperature to reduce emissions, so it is now possible to find engines in late-model vehicles that run 20 or more degrees hotter that what is considered normal in older engines.
Regardless of what you drive, it is critical that your cooling system is in premium condition to help protect your car from expensive breakdowns.
Some of the signs that there are problems with your cooling system include:
Car overheats (see engine temperature gauge).
Puddle of (greenish or brownish) cooling fluid under the car.

A car’s basic cooling system is made up of the radiator, radiator hoses water pump, heater core, thermostat and a cooling fan. Each has a different function:
Radiator: An important part of a car’s cooling system, the radiator passes hot coolant through its metal fins – cooling it off in the process before pumping it back into the engine block.
Radiator Hoses and Housings: Used to transfer coolant throughout the engine, hoses require regular checks – and the occasional replacement- to avoid them becoming brittle and cracked.
Water Pump: The water pump circulates the coolant through the system. The pump is usually driven by either a drive belt or sometimes by the engine’s timing belt. The water pump requires regular inspection for signs of corrosion, bearing operation and seal leaks.
Thermostat: Controlling the circulation rate of the coolant in your car, the thermostat helps to ensure your engine maintains a constant operating temperature. A faulty or failing thermostat can lead to costly problems such as increased engine wear, poor fuel economy or even an overheated engine.
Cooling Fan: The Electric Cooling Fan is controlled by the thermostat, or the engine’s computer, and automatically kicks into gear to help the thermostat and coolant maintain a consistent engine temperature.
