Working of the Cooling System

Your car's engine produces a lot of heat wherein the spark plugs light the fuel propelling the vehicle forward. The cooling system keeps the heat under control and is considered one of a car's most critical systems.

Experts recommend that complete cooling system checks are conducted at least every other year. These checks would include:

  • Internal Leak Test
  • Thermostat Check
  • Pressure Test
  • Engine Fan Test
  • Thermostat Check
  • Visual Inspection

Coolant flushes extend the engine's lifespan, and regularly topping off your fluids guarantees there will never be a shortage. The coolant flush would remove all impurities and improve the lifespan of the engine and its efficiency.

Some parts of the cooling system are:

  • Water Pump
  • Bypass System
  • Head Gaskets
  • Radiator
  • Thermostat
  • Hoses
  • Heater core
  • Intake Manifold Gasket
  • Pressure Cap and Reserve Tank
