Radiators are usually made from aluminum. They are underhood components consisting of horizontal and vertical finned tubes flanked by two cooling tanks. The tanks contain some water and coolant to stop engine from overheating. The fluid makes a journey through the mechanical or electric pump to the engine where it absorbs the heat. Then, the warmed fluid returns to the radiator and the excessive heat is dissipated into the atmosphere.

To avoid expensive repairs, check the radiator now and then for any signs of damage. Even small particles of dirt or rust may clog up the device and prevent it from normal operation. Another common problem is leaking. When you move your vehicle and see a puddle on the pavement, your radiator is likely to leak. It may also smoke or steam: if the problem is in coolant, the smoke is usually white and thick. Most often, what you see under the hood is steam - it has no strong smell of engine liquids. As soon as you notice the above symptoms, you better set the alarm bells ringing.

Radiators are subject to corrosion and impact damage. Depleted coolant additives can cause rust and corrosion that can clog and restrict coolant flow. External corrosion caused by weathering and road salt can result in fin deterioration and leaks. Damaged or missing fins can reduce heat transfer to the air, and stones and debris striking the radiator can cause leaks. If visual inspection is inconclusive, pressure test the radiator to check for leaks. Internal blockage and heat transfer efficiency can be checked with an infrared surface thermometer. The temperature should be highest near the inlet and cooler at the outlet.

This is a great product! I had a leaky radiator, so i came here and ordered a new one for cheap! Why pay someone to do it for you, when you can do it yourself for $300 cheaper!
