Car Corner: Symptoms Of
A Sick Cooling System

Originally published: 2012-12-20 22:09:54

From The Greeneville Neighbor News

Your vehicle won’t cough or sneeze, but there are signs that the cooling system is feeling under the weather. 

The most obvious are overheating, leaks, a sweet smell of antifreeze, and having to always add antifreeze.

Cooling system issues are a major reason for mechanical failure. 

Lack of antifreeze can cause engine and transmission problems. 

The cooling system removes heat from the engine and transmission and transfers it to the outside. 

The water pump circulates antifreeze through the engine. 

The antifreeze absorbs heat and returns it to the radiator where it is dissipated. 

The thermostat regulates the coolant temperature to keep it consistent so the engine can work properly. 

If one of these components fails, the system cannot work like it should.

If you suspect your vehicle may be overheating, do not remove the radiator cap, you could get seriously burned. 

Let the vehicle cool off first. 

If you are adding antifreeze, be sure to check to make sure you are using the correct type for your vehicle. 

There are several different kinds. 

Do not mix antifreeze types. 

Antifreeze keeps water from freezing in winter, and from boiling over in summer.

It should be checked at least every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

If you notice your vehicle has hoses that are bulging, antifreeze leaks, frayed or cracked belts, or the temperature gauge is going into the “red” zone, make an appointment to have your vehicle checked out.
