Cooling System: When Should You Have it Serviced?
The Cooling System is essential to maintaining a steady engine temperature. It consists of the radiator, water pump, cooling fans, thermostat, and hoses. The system operates by circulating coolant through the engine to absorb heat.
A properly maintained cooling and/or heating system is crucial for your car. Flush and change the coolant regularly, check hoses for leaks, and ensure the water pump is functioning correctly. If you have any doubts about your cooling system, take it to a mechanic as soon as possible!
A car’s cooling and/or heating system serves two primary purposes: maintaining engine temperature and cooling the engine. This is done by circulating coolant throughout the engine to absorb heat from it, and then dissipate that heat as it recirculates back through the cooling system.
To keep your cooling system in good condition, check the coolant level frequently and add fluid when necessary. You should also flush the system and refill it with fresh coolant every few years. If you notice any leaks, get them fixed as soon as possible.
