How Does the system work ?

Your car’s cooling system is responsible for maintaining the optimal operating temperature of your engine. It does this by circulating coolant through the engine and radiator to dissipate heat. 

A malfunctioning cooling system can lead to engine overheating, which can cause extensive damage to your vehicle. Common signs of a failing cooling system include a temperature gauge reading higher than normal, coolant leaks, and strange noises

Regular maintenance of your cooling system, including flushing and filling the coolant, inspecting hoses and belts, and checking for leaks, can help prevent costly repairs and keep your vehicle running smoothly.

cooling systems Repairs FAQs

A car cooling system is a system that helps regulate the temperature of the engine and prevent it from overheating.

The main components of a car cooling system include the radiator, water pump, thermostat, coolant, and hoses.

The radiator is responsible for dissipating the heat from the coolant, which is circulated through the engine to keep it from overheating.

The water pump circulates the coolant through the engine and the radiator to maintain the proper temperature.

The thermostat helps regulate the temperature of the engine by controlling the flow of coolant through the engine and radiator.

It is recommended to have the cooling system inspected and serviced every 2 years or 60,000 km’s, whichever comes first.
