Cooling System

 

Your radiator protects your engine and air conditioning condenser from overheating. It also plays an important role with the computer controlled system. An engine temperature sensor actually tells the computer what the engine temperature is so the computer can adjust the air and fuel mixture and engine timing. The efficiency of the radiator directly effects the efficiency of your engine.

That's why flushing the cooling system and pH balancing the coolant is recommended at least once every two years.

Cooling Ssytem over heatingOur coolant system power flush continuously forces fluid under pressure through the engine, radiator and heater core in both directions at different times to remove contaminates. We pressure test the cooling system for leaks, clean the recovery bottle and pressure test the radiator cap. The system is then refilled with the proper mix of coolant and water to reach the -35 degrees for winter protection.

Weíre often asked questions about the cooling system Ė the system that cools your engine and keeps it at the proper operating temperature. Letís examine the topic in two areas: first the coolant itself and, second, the parts that make up the cooling system.

 

The coolant in your car or light truck is the mix of water and antifreeze that circulates through the engine to draw off heat. First, you need to have the proper amount. If you donít have enough coolant it canít keep your engine cool.

You also need the right kind of coolant. Different makes of sedans and other vehicles require different coolant formulation to protect against corrosion.

 

 Finally, your coolant needs to be fresh. Over time and miles, the anti-corrosion additives in the coolant are depleted and the coolant can actually start to eat away at the cooling system parts. Your ownerís manual and your Auto Medics of Shelby service adviser in Shelby Twp Michigan can help you with the recommended coolant replacement schedule and make sure youíre getting the right type of coolant.

 

Now letís talk about the cooling system components. These will all eventually wear out and need to be replaced.

 

Starting with the radiator, we see them coming into the shop with leaks or clogged with deposits. Depending on the damage, we will clean, repair or replace. We also see radiator pressure caps that can no longer hold the proper Car overheatpressure. We recommend replacing pressure caps when you change your coolant to avoid this problem.

 

We see leaky water pumps and hoses in the Detroit Michigan area that need to be replaced, too. Thereís also a part called the thermostat that opens and closes to regulate the flow of coolant. Sometimes they stick open or closed and the cooling system wonít work properly.

 

Engine damage from overheating can be very expensive to fix so itís important to maintain your cooling system properly with scheduled coolant replacement and periodic inspections of the cooling system. Certainly come in if you suspect a leak and have us take a look.
