What Does My Car's Cooling System Do?

If your vehicle is constantly overheating or you are experiencing other engine problems, there may be a problem with the cooling system. The cooling system helps to circulate lubricant to keep engine parts cool and regulated. As you drive your vehicle, the engine emits a large amount of heat. In order to regulate the temperature of the engine, the cooling system distributes lubricant to coat the engine and protect vital components.

If the cooling system isn’t working properly, the engine is exposed to an extensive amount of heat, resulting in engine overheating, corrosion, and damage to critical components. This damage can lead to expensive engine repairs that can otherwise be avoided with regular inspections of your vehicle’s cooling system and engine. 

Catching an issue early on with the cooling system can help you save time and money on expensive engine repairs. Some symptoms of a failing cooling system include the engine running rough and constantly overheating. You may also notice a burning smell while driving. As soon as you suspect an issue with the engine or cooling system, it is important to have your car inspected as soon as possible. Don’t ignore an issue with the engine, as a small problem can turn into a much larger one with continued use of your vehicle. 

Typical issues with the cooling system include a failing water pump which can prevent coolant from properly moving throughout the engine. There could also be an issue with the thermostat or radiator.
