How to Repair a Radiator

A car radiator is a part used to cool the vehicle engine. The radiator is a heat exchanger used to cool the hot antifreeze or water passing through the vehicle engine. The radiator is generally made of materials that conduct heat well, such as aluminum or brass. It contains a series of thin pipes or fins. These pipes or fins form a structure through which the engine’s coolant passes and transfers the heat to the outside. The radiator absorbs the excess heat generated during the operation of the vehicle engine and transfers this heat to the outside. As it passes through the engine block, it heats up and comes to the radiator. The pipes or fins in the radiator absorb the heat as it passes over the cooling liquid and transfers this heat to the outside of the radiator. In this way, overheating of the engine is prevented and the engine operates efficiently.

Examine the Damage Assessment:

Before starting, it is necessary to observe the radiator. First, it is necessary to examine the pipes leading to the radiator for leaks and cracks. Check for scratches on the bottom, top and edges of the radiator.
