Maintaining the Cooling System in Your Vehicle

Your vehicle's cooling system is one of the most important systems in 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 comes scorching temperatures that can destroy your engine if not controlled. There are two types of cooling systems - liquid-cooled and air-cooled. 

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 and absorbs the heat given off by the engine. When it moves down the rubber tubes, it is cooled by the air coming through the vehicle's grill. During extremely cold temperatures, you will need to make sure you have appropriate levels of antifreeze in your vehicle to avoid freezing your liquid coolants and other liquids in your engine. 

Neglecting your cooling system for even a short period of time 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 your cooling system to be flushed. Having a properly trained technician like one of ours here at Dave Mays Automotive perform regular checkups of belts, hoses, pumps, and fluids will ensure your car remains properly cooled and healthy for years to come.
