The cooling system is the combination of parts that work together to control engine operating temperature for proper performance. The system is made up of passages inside the engine block and heads, a water pump and drive belt to circulate the coolant, a thermostat to control the temperature of the coolant, a radiator to cool the coolant, a radiator cap to control the pressure in the system, and hoses to transfer the coolant from the engine to the radiator. All of these parts have one goal of moving the coolant around the system so that it can absorb and dissipate heat. The failure of one component can result in expensive engine repairs, which is why you need to regularly inspect the condition of your cooling system and replace worn-out parts in time.
