7 Top Most Common Repairs Of Car Radiators

Repairing car radiators is one of the more dramatic disruptions that you, as a driver, have to contend with. Due to the nature of the heat and pressure contained in the cooling system, these types of problems are what we associate with the stereotypical vapor cloud that arises under the open hood of a disabled car. The cooler is obviously the
most well-known part of the refrigeration system, but it is often not the culprit when it comes to a malfunction. Check out some of the most common repairs to a vehicle's cooling system:



1. 
Failed thermostat

The thermostat is the most common culprit when a vehicle overheats. The thermostat is actually not part of the radiator itself, but a type of valve that controls how much coolant can flow into and out of the radiator. This helps to keep the engine at the optimal operating temperature. When the thermostat fails, the car starts to overheat very quickly.

2.
Leaky radiator hoses 

The most common cause of a leak in the cooling system is not the radiator but the radiator hoses. The hoses connects the radiator to the engine and permits coolant to flow between the two. Radiator hoses are considered wear parts, meaning they should be replaced regularly, whether they are working properly or not. That's because they become more susceptible to failure over time.
 
3.
Air in the cooling system.

Air can be trapped in the cooling system, which limits the flow of coolant and reduces its efficiency. If your car seems to be hot, you may want to see if the cooling system is vented to remove any possible air bubbles.

4.
Radiator leaking 

Leaks in the cooler itself are harder to locate and fix than problems with hoses. Look for air bubbles or vapor leaking from the radiator to indicate the location of a leak. Leaking radiators can sometimes be mended, but it is a difficult task.
 
5.
Failed water pump 

The cooling system uses a pump to move the coolant through the engine and regulate the temperature. Water flows through the radiator past the pump into the engine and is then forced back into the radiator. If the water pump fails, the water will not circulate properly and the car will overheat. A broken water pump is quite common.

6.
Obstacles in the cooling system 

Obstacles can take the form of engine "deposits" that blocks the cooling channels in the engine or radiator, making it difficult for the coolant to move efficiently. Clogging can also occur if airflow through the radiator is obstructed, which in turn makes it more difficult for the radiator to transfer heat to the air. This can be caused by bent fins to body damage from an accident.

7.
Defective radiator fan

Modern cars use an electric fan to draw enough air through the radiator and keep the car cool at idle and low speeds. A car that is OK on the highway but overheats when idling or in traffic probably has a problem with the radiator fan.
