Radiators and Cooling systems

 Your radiator is an essential part of your car’s engine and, just like everything else, it needs regular maintenance to keep your car running as it should, that's why at carters car care we will perform a radiator check to insure your cooling system is working correctly, smoothly and keeping your car cool! NEVER try opening your radiator cap without letting your car COMPLETELY cool.  


A cooling system works by sending a liquid coolant through passages in the engine block and heads.  As the coolant flows through these passages, it picks up heat from the engine.  The heated fluid then makes its way through a rubber hose to the radiator in the front of the car.  As it flows through the thin tubes in the radiator, the hot liquid is cooled by the air stream entering the engine compartment from the grill in front of the car.  Once the fluid is cooled, it returns to the engine to absorb more heat.  The water pump has the job of keeping the fluid moving through this system of plumbing and hidden passages. Which is why it is important to get your cooling system function/maintenance checked.
