Cooling System

Service Cooling System

The system’s cooling fan circulates air through the radiator so that it can release engine heat into the surrounding air. Your fans might be mechanical or electric, and if the cooling fan malfunctions, your engine can quickly overheat.

A pressure cap is sometimes, but not always called the radiator cap. It may be on the radiator, or on the coolant reservoir. A pressure cap should be inspected at least once a year. A CAP THAT IS TAKEN OFF WHILE THE ENGINE IS STILL HOT CAN RESULT IN SEVERE BURNS from the spray of boiling coolant.

The coolant reservoir indicates the level of coolant in the system. The thermostat is a valve that regulates the flow of coolant based on coolant temperature. A poorly performing thermostat can result in overheating, engine knocking, poor fuel economy, your heater not working properly, and more.
