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.

When you know the critical signs of radiator problems, you can avoid troubles. So, just make sure you follow the suggested maintenance schedule and keep your vehicle cool. Don't forget to flush and refill the unit yearly. Don't ignore the low antifreeze level and the extremely high engine temperature. Do inspect the system for leaks from time to time. And keep in mind that the overflow tank should always be filled with water. However if the radiator fails no matter what you do, we'll be glad to help you out.
