Your vehicle's radiator plays a crucial role when it comes to keeping your engine from overheating. It does that by circulating a fluid -- usually a mix of coolant and water-- to the engine and then back. That removes any heat that's been building up in the engine and keeps it running right.
How Radiators Work
That fluid is sent through an inlet hose to the engine block, where it collects the heat. The fluid then heads back to the radiator through outlet hoses. There, the collected heat is emitted harmlessly into the atmosphere through the radiator's large, finned, flat surface. The coolant is free to then return to the engine and continue the process.
How to Spot Radiator Issues
Eventually, radiator parts can go bad. Signs of failure include:
- Pools of red, green, or yellow liquid under your vehicle
- You detect the sweet, syrupy scent of coolant
- Strange engine noises
- You have problems with your air conditioning or heating
- Your engine temperature runs high
