Did You Know:

The invention of the radiator is widely attributed to Karl Benz —  it helps lower engine temperature through the simple process of heat exchange.

Radiators connect to channels running through the engine and cylinder head, it’s main job is to pump coolant to the engine so it doesn’t become overheated. Coolant is a mixture of water and antifreeze, it keeps the fluid from becoming frozen in colder weather climates.

A radiator typically holds many small tubes that look like honeycombs, they’re combined with a water pump, thermostat and fan to continuously draw heat away from the engine. Airflow is crucial for the radiator to do its job, in most vehicles the radiator will sit directly behind the front grill.

It’s important to note that front-end collisions can easily break the radiator tubes, rendering the component useless. If you’re involved in even a minor collision, it’s best to have the car looked at by a professional. Another indicator of repair is if you discover water dripping under your car, or you notice the engine’s coolant level are dropping fast. These are signs to take the car to a mechanic as soon as possible!
