One of the most common causes of roadside breakdowns are radiator and cooling system faults or breakdowns. Think about those cars on the side of the road with steam coming from under the hood.
The radiator is an essential part of your vehicle’s cooling system, which maintains the engine temperature at proper levels to function no-matter the ambient temperature and operating conditions. In a functioning system coolant, is circulated to reduce the heat produced around your engine, especially in slow moving traffic when your radiator is working extra hard. A malfunctioning cooling system can cause a wide range of problems from loss of power and fuel efficiency right through to a reduced engine lifespan as leaking coolant damages the gaskets and overheating damages the cylinders.
A regular maintenance schedule to detect issues early on is key. Some of the early signs of your radiator being in need for some attention include water leakage under your car, having to fill your coolant often and/or hot water smell coming from your engine.
