About your car's cooling system.

How does the car's cooling system work?.

Engine energy generated by your car due to burning fuel is converted to mechanical energy to drive your vehicle; the balance converts to heat. Some of that heat blows out of the exhaust pipe, but the remainder heats the engine itself.

Your car's cooling system works by moving coolant through the engine, picking up heat, and then passing that heated coolant through the radiator, where the heat is then transferred off to the air passing through the car's radiator.

The cooling system must have enough reserve cooling capacity to cool a car under extreme operating conditions, such as when towing a caravan or driving in scorching heat, as well as maintaining the correct engine temperature in extreme cold, such as on a visit to the snowfields or during cold weather events.

The warning signs of an unwell cooling system..

  • Temperature gauge or warning light out of range.

  • Puddles of greenish to brown liquid on the garage floor.

  • Engine making a pinging sound on acceleration.

  • Any sign of steam from under the bonnet you should shut down the engine.
