Most of the car owners take good care of their vehicles because it is a costly asset to them, a dream machine, and above all, a thing of necessity. Despite the country or the brand of the car, the trend among new age car owners while that of a Toyota Innova or a Volvo XC60 is to accessorize their car rather than paying attention to the primary mechanism like the engine or the car radiator. For such car owners, there is a word of caution. The car radiator and the engine are what work in co-ordination to make your car run. Neglecting them can mean real trouble. That is why it is better to invest in high quality and durable car radiators rather than costly car perfumes!   

The number of years your car engine will serve you is determined by how good you are at handling the car radiator. The primary mechanism in keeping the temperatures of the car engine at safe levels is what the car radiator has been assigned to do. As the term ‘radiator’ suggests, the main function of the car radiator is to eject heat out. When the engine of the car exceeds the optimum temperature level due to friction, it is the radiator of the car that decreases the temperature of the coolant so that the engine does not get damaged. The car radiator passes a mixture of water and anti freeze through the chambers. This is because pumping in the motor oil through the engine block is not sufficient enough to bring the temperature down in such cases. As the car radiator extracts the heat from the engine, it evaporates through the walls of the radiator. It is therefore necessary to keep the radiator itself cool too. To serve this purpose, most of the cars have an electrical or belt driven fan installed.

Keeping yourself updated about the common car radiator problems such as solder corrosion, steam erosion, over pressurization caused as a result of defective pressure cap, leaking oil coolers, cracking of car radiator covers and electrolysis can save you from useless expenses and hassle. Solving such car radiator issues personally or with the help of an amateur is an absolute no-no. It is better to call in professional help. Whether the task entails substitution of certain parts of the radiator or a total replacement, only professionals can effectively identify and repair the damage caused.  

The process of installing the car radiator is also crucial. It is better to use a superior quality coolant or antifreeze. At the same time the cooling system requires to be washed thoroughly before installation to wash off any impure remnant. The gasket and thermostat should also be replaced and most importantly, care should be taken as not to harm the radiator core while the installation is being carried out. As a quick tip, car radiator specialists suggest to keep the radiator cap off for some time after the installation is complete.

The main motif therefore is to use a good quality and long lasting car radiator in your posh automobile. A car engine can give you more mileage with less fuel consumption, but installing a prized car radiator can safeguard your engine for a long time to come!
