A car radiator disperses heat away from the main engine block. A car engine works by burning fuel (whether petrol or diesel), and this generates a considerable amount of heat. In addition, a car engine has many moving parts; this movement creates friction, which in turn adds to the heat.
Because a car engine must remain not too hot in order to avoid overheating and seizure, when it reaches a certain temperature the thermostat opens to allow the flow of coolant and water around the engine and back to the radiator, where it loses heat to the cooler surrounding air. The front grill of the car allows outside air to blow over the radiator. If the radiator gets too hot, for example on a very hot day, or when the car is stationary, a fan behind the radiator starts, helping to blow air over it.
The most common reason for needing a car radiator repair is a leak. There are many seals, gaskets and hoses in the cooling system that can deteriorate or get a hole in them. Furthermore, every radiator needs to be properly maintained and the coolant must be kept topped up. Your garage should provide coolant changes at the same time as your annual service.
It’s also a good idea to check your car’s coolant level regularly. If it seems to be dropping a lot, then you may have a leak in the cooling system.
Located around the shores of the River Avon and the Severn Estuary, Bristol is a culturally diverse, socially abuzz, alternative and independent city. Small wonder that in 2014 The Times named it the best city in the UK to live. It’s also one of the sunniest.
Bristol is famous for Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, which is well worth a visit if you don’t happen to drive across it on your way into the city. There is a small toll on this Grade I listed structure which forms part of the B3129. But if you suffer from vertigo don’t look down, the deep drop to the River Avon and Gorge is spectacular and changes with the tide.
