Driving a car would be impossible in the absence of fuel, engine oil and cooling water. With the defective radiator, the engine can not maintain its operating temperature and may fail completely after a few minutes. With a few exceptions, all cars are equipped with water cooling systems, supported by air cooling elements. Some sports cars are even equipped with additional oil radiators, which have the task of supporting the water radiator, since the very powerful engines warm up considerably due to the high RPM values. In this case, both radiators are designed in the same way.
Cooling takes place through the heat exchanger. The coolant is transported by means of a circuit which includes the engine and the radiator. Reaching the radiator, it must cross a large area of several tubes. This makes it possible to pass a large amount of coolant cooled by the surrounding air which is in contact with the individual tubes. This results in an even faster crossing of the cooling circuit. As a result, water remains in the engine for very short periods of time, thus failing to overheat. However, the situation can become critical if the amount of water is not enough or when it is blocked in traffic during a particularly bright day. The absence of water is in most cases caused by the failure of gaskets or faults in the connection points.
Damage could hurt the hose, radiator, or water pump. As the engine starts, the heated water produces pressure, the places where it is released can be found easily. The losses caused by the radiator are, however, more difficult to notice. In our online store you will find a wide range of spare parts (for example, spring, cushion support, generator, hydraulic filter, trapezoidal belt, coupling bar, etc.) for many automotive brands.
