Your vehicle’s engine creates considerable heat while generating the energy necessary to move as well as power all its electrical systems. Exceeding the temperature range your engine was designed to operate within can have broad and long-lasting consequences on the longevity of your engine. Whether your engine runs a little hot on a consistent basis, or experiences occasional overheating, problems with overheating generally are a result of a failure in the cooling system.
The cooling system in your engine is designed to keep the engine in its ideal operating temperature. It is present to ensure that the heat your engine generates is kept from reaching dangerous temperatures. It consists primarily of your radiators, hoses, and coolant fluid.
