When you invest in industrial equipment, you need it to be as accurate as possible. In addition, when you create processes that utilise your equipment, you need to ensure that your employees are accountable for safety standards as well as accuracy. Hi! My name is Neil, and this blog is going to look at industrial equipment and supplies, and in particular, I plan to write about accuracy and accountability. I am a proud dad of two little boys. Currently, I work part-time while they are in nursery, and my beautiful wife is the full time worker in our home. I love our arrangement, and I especially enjoy that it gives me time to create things like this blog. I hope that you enjoy reading my posts.
Your car's radiator is very important to the entire workings of the car itself; the engine generates heat from working and the radiator circulates coolant to keep it cool. If the radiator or any of the parts of the cooling system were to fail, your engine could overheat so severely that it could actually seize up. Note a few common car radiator problems so you know where to start looking for problems or know what to expect by way of repairs when you take the car to a shop.
The thermostat isn't actually part of the radiator, but if it's broken, it can't tell the radiator how much coolant to flow into the engine area. Like the thermostat in your home, once it goes bad, your cooling systems may work fine but they simply won't be told to turn on. A broken thermostat is not uncommon so it may be the first thing your mechanic checks.
2. Water pump
The water pump moves coolant through the radiator and into the engine compartment and then back again. If the water pump fails, your engine may not be getting water circulating around it and it overheats. A broken water pump is also fairly common and may also be one of the first things a mechanic checks.
3. Hose leaks
The radiator itself may not have a leak, but hoses that connect the radiator to the engine are often prone to leaks. This is because they are made from rubber, which can get brittle and crack in the wintertime or get soft in extreme summer heat. Connectors around the hoses may also leak as they too break down over time. If you notice drips of radiator fluid under your car, you might check the hoses directly above those drips and note if you see any leaks or cracks; you may be able to even change those hoses yourself.
4. Obstructions in the system
If your engine is suddenly running hot after an accident, it may be that something under the hood got bent or damaged and is blocking the system. If you haven't had the radiator flushed and refilled in many years, there could be scaly material lining the radiator itself or the hoses. This too can obstruct the free flow of radiator fluid and water through the system. When the system is obstructed like this, the engine may not be getting enough coolant to maintain a normal temperature and it may overheat very easily.
