Cooling System Diagnostic and Repair

What is an engine cooling system?

The cooling system of your engine impacts your vehicle’s overall reliability and engine endurance. Cooling systems have improved over time because of improved coolant formulations and better radiator designs, materials & construction. If you think there’s a problem with your vehicle’s cooling system, you should get it checked as soon as possible.

What does an engine cooling system do?
The primary reason for having a cooling system is to remove excess heat from the engine and transmission and release that heat into the atmosphere. As the name suggests, the water pump pumps coolant throughout the engine. This coolant absorbs heat as it moves through the engine, and then returns to the radiator where heat is dissipated via fins on the radiator, usually with the help of a fan. A thermostat mounted in the engine controls the coolant temperature to ensure it is kept at a consistent temperature to promote efficient engine operation.

Typical Wear and Tear
The following things can affect the cooling system, which could lead to repair or replacement:

  • Personal driving habits
  • Varying operating conditions
  • Type of vehicle
  • Type of coolant used
  • Frequency of regular maintenance such as coolant changes

Symptoms of cooling system problems:

  • Vehicle overheating
  • A sweet smell emanating from the engine or in the cab
  • Leaks
  • Repeatedly needing to top off fluid
