Radiator (CUC13577) by K-Metal®. The radiator contains a series of small tubes through which coolant flows from the engine. A network of fins surrounds the tubes. Airflow through the grille when the vehicle is at speed, or drawn though by the fan when the vehicle is idling or at low speed, flows through the radiator. Heat is transferred from the coolant to the fins and to the cooler ambient air. If testing proves that your radiator is leaking, clogged, or otherwise damaged, don’t pay the high dealer price for a replacement, when you can get an OE quality radiator for much less from K-Metal.

The most common reason for radiator replacement is coolant leakage, but a radiator can also fail because it is clogged or the cooling fins are damaged. Leaks that aren’t obvious can be detected with a pressure tester. Deposit buildup, usually caused by not changing the coolant at regular intervals, can clog coolant passages and reduce coolant flow. Debris buildup in the fins and fins that are bent over from impact will reduce airflow through the radiator. Any of these defects can cause reduced cooling system efficiency and engine overheating.
