What is a radiator and what does it do?

A radiator helps to eliminate excess heat from the engine. It is part of the engine’s cooling system, which also includes a liquid coolant, hoses to circulate the coolant, a fan, and a thermostat that monitors the coolant temperature. After the coolant passes through the radiator, it recirculates through the engine.

What is the radiator cap?

A radiator cap keeps the cooling system pressured which raises the boiling point. The radiator cap also has a vacuum valve that allows coolant to flow from the reservoir tank to the radiator during cool down. When the coolant temperature drops, the coolant will contract and create a vacuum.

What is in radiator flush?

What is a radiator flush? A radiator flush is like a blood transfusion for your car’s cooling system. A technician will flush several gallons of radiator cleaner and water through your car’s cooling system. This gets all the old antifreeze and any contaminants out, then new antifreeze is added into the system.

What is the radiator fluid?

Radiator fluid, better known as coolant or antifreeze, keeps your radiator cool, as you might expect. Car engines run hot, especially in warm weather, and without something to dissipate the excessive heat generated by the engine, your car can overheat and fail very quickly.

Does the radiator affect the AC?

If the engine is running hot or overheating, it can have a noticeable negative affect on the air conditioning system. Some cars have two electric cooling fans, one for the air conditioning condenser and the other for the radiator. Usually at idle on a hot day with the AC on both fans will be on.

How much does a radiator cost?

Each radiator typically costs between $250 and $500, depending on the size and whether it’s single or double panel. Boiler replacement cost: As mentioned, it’s often not the radiator that needs to be replaced, but the boiler.

What are the two types of radiators?

There are two types of radiators. A mechanically assembled (usually cheap) radiator and a brazed radiator. Both of these radiators are used by car manufacturers. When replacing a radiator, the new radiator specificati- ons (material, technology and dimen- sions) have to be equal or better than the original part.
