Your Cooling System

The engine cooling system is comprised of several parts, including:

  • The water pump
  • the radiator
  • thermostat
  • coolant fan heater core
  • coolant reservoir
  • and of course the coolant


Cooling System First things first

the cooling system is not the AC system. This could be a  fatal mistake for your engine. While air conditioning is a nice luxury, the cooling system is vital to your car’s drivability.

The cooling system has three primary functions:

  • Keeps the engine from overheating
  • Keep the engine’s temperature high enough to meet emission requirements
  • Provide heat in the winter

Coolant flushes provide many benefits to your cooling system. It is important to maintain your cooling system, just like every other part of your vehicle. If you don’t remember when your vehicle last had a coolant flush or you think it may be time, our team is ready to help you.

Keeping your engine at optimum operating temperature is the main goal of the cooling system. The cooling system utilizes coolant (also called antifreeze) to dissipate heat created by the combustion engine. The cooling system does not need a full maintenance overhaul with every oil change, but the antifreeze levels and quality  should be checked and corrected.
