Understanding Your Vehicle's Radiator and Cooling Elements

Taking the time to fully understand your vehicle's engine's cooling and radiator elements will help to ensure its proper function so that you can drive with confidence through the roads of Medford, OR and beyond.

The cooling system uses coolant and antifreeze to move heat away from the engine. The five primary parts of any cooling system are the radiator itself, the radiator cap, radiator hoses, the thermostat, and the water pump. When a vehicle's cooling system is not functioning at optimal levels, crucial components of the engine may be damaged beyond repair. A malfunctioning cooling system can cause gaskets to blow, aluminum wraps to become warped, and more.

Flushing out the cooling system as recommended by your vehicle manufacturer will help to protect the radiator. The cooling system and radiator experts at Crater Lake Mazda are ready to help you understand the function of these crucial elements when you visit us today!
