Everyone’s seen those “funny” scenes on TV and in the movies where someone’s radiator breaks down miles from nowhere. In real life, it’s not funny at all. Your radiator is actually one of the most important parts of your car, and if it stops working, you’ve got real trouble.
The fact is that radiators do get subjected to high temperatures after a long period of time. The older the car, the more likely your radiator is to need servicing.
The radiator works to stop the car engine from overheating. The radiator extracts heat, and also serves to re-cool your engine coolant. This is pretty much how a refrigerator works, in fact.
The problems start when the system leaks, or if a component like a radiator hose or seal fractures. The radiator system is simple in theory, but there are many components which need to be checked, when trying to find the cause of radiator problems.
Components include the water pump, heater core hoses, freeze plugs, gaskets, and various parts of the radiator itself. One of the classic symptoms of radiator problems is "crusty" coolant fluid outside the system. Unless the problem is very simple indeed, like just not having enough water in the water tank, it’s a good idea to take the car in to a service center to get the entire radiator system checked out.
