Most Common Radiator Problems
Your car’s cooling system involves many different parts, with the radiator one of the most easily recognized components. Coolant is pumped through the radiator by the water pump, which is controlled by the thermostat. After the coolant absorbs heat from the engine, it gets passed through the radiator where it cools down and goes back through the process.
There is also the radiator fan, which helps cool your car when at low or idle speeds, and radiator hoses, which are susceptible to failure as they age. Many problems with your cooling system do not necessarily originate from the radiator itself, so diagnosing a problem can be difficult. A few common problems include:
- Leaky radiator
- Low coolant
- Sludge in the radiator
- Radiator fan failure
- Radiator hose leaking or failure
If you notice red, yellow, or green coolant leaking onto the ground or that your car is overheating, you should inspect the radiator. Over time, certain parts prone to wear can crack or leak. If you have a coolant leak, your engine will overheat which can lead to very serious problems. Get your cooling system fixed as soon as possible to prevent extensive damage. Fixing a leak in a radiator can be difficult, and replacement is typically the best option.
