Cooling Systems, Radiators, Water Pumps

Keeping the engine in your car running smoothly depends in part on the condition of your cooling system. The engine produces so much heat that it would virtually melt without the radiator, hoses, water pump, thermostat, fan, and timing switch that comprise the cooling system. All of these parts must work correctly and be properly filled with coolant to carry out their task: to move fluid throughout the system

Signs Of Trouble In The Cooling System

When the radiator or water pump fail or hoses crack or leak, the cooling system cannot do its job of keeping the engine at a constant temperature. Common signs of cooling system problems include:

  • Leaks
  • High engine temperature reflected on dashboard gauges
  • Low coolant levels
  • Dark-colored or dirty coolants
  • Smoke coming from the front of the vehicle
  • Squeaks or leaks in the water pump

When your car is overheated and smoking, you have no choice but to call for service, as driving the car in this condition will damage it. Fortunately, most of the other warning signs will allow you to quickly drive to obtain service. If you bring your car to a reputable service facility such as Auto Repair Expert for oil changes, checking hoses and all fluid levels is part of the free inspection offered with the service and can warn you of impending danger.
