Your car’s cooling system is one essential component of your vehicle. Inside your engine, spark plugs ignite the fuel within the cylinders to produce small explosions that propel your vehicle down the road. With small explosions come scorching temperatures that can destroy your engine if not properly controlled. If all of that sounds intimidating, don’t worry. The automotive experts at Chabill’s Tire & Auto Service can handle all cooling system repairs for all makes and models. Our experts know it all and have completed extensive training. All you have to do is bring your vehicle to us and we can explain any repairs it needs!
Types of Vehicle Cooling Systems
Liquid cooling is a more modern approach that is used on most of today's vehicles. A liquid coolant is sent through passages in the engine to absorb the heat given off by it. When the coolant moves down these passages in the engine, it is cooled by the air coming through the vehicle's grill. During extremely cold temperatures, it is necessary that you make sure you have appropriate levels of antifreeze in your vehicle to prevent freezing of liquid coolants and other liquids in your engine.
Air cooled engines are not as common in vehicles today, but you might find them in classic models. That’s because they aren’t as effective in the long term or for long distances. You wouldn’t be able to make a long road trip on an air-cooled engine.
Normal Wear & Tear Needs Routine Repair
Neglecting your cooling system for even a short period can result in serious damage and even complete engine failure. Over time, your car's cooling system will develop scale deposits that restrict coolant flow and will require a flush of your cooling system. Having a properly trained technician perform regular checkups of belts, hoses, pumps, and fluids will ensure your car remains properly cooled and fully functional for years to come. Keeping up the engine’s components can support the proper function of the cooling system. While the cooling system is working well, your engine is protected from damage caused by extreme heat.
