An engine develops considerable heat during operation. Some of this heat is used to create the energy that moves the vehicle and some goes out the tailpipe, but the remainder is transferred to the metal parts of the engine. This heat must be removed or serious engine damage can result. Coolant circulating through the engine absorbs the heat and releases it to the air as the coolant passes through the radiator. The radiator consists of an inlet and outlet tank with tubes in between through which the coolant flows. Fins attached to the tubes transfer the heat from the coolant to the air that is drawn through the radiator by the cooling fan or forced through when the vehicle is at speed. The radiator can become damaged and leak and/or lose its effectiveness. This can be caused by corrosion due to depleted antifreeze, using water with high mineral content, or electrolysis; physical damage that can cause punctures and crushed tubes and fins; and clogging due to neglected maintenance and the buildup of scale and debris from the cooling system.
A Spectra Premium radiator is your best choice for a replacement. Every radiator is carefully designed and validated to ensure fit, form and function. Only the highest grade materials are used in production and each unit is 100% leak tested. Plastic end tanks are made heavy-duty with reinforcing ribs to prevent flexing and failure and high quality aluminum alloy is used for optimum crimp strength. This radiator is built with thermal shocked gasket and O-rings to provide durability in extreme cold weather and subjected to an aging and endurance test to ensure long-lasting durability. The component comes with installation guidelines, OE hardware, and fittings for installation.171.05 218.11
