Understanding what your coolant system is and how it works is the first step in being able to recognize when it may need maintenance or repair. One of the primary functions of coolant is to regulate heat within the cylinder head and engine block. The coolant system is designed to circulate a cooling medium which absorbs heat from the engine and dissipates it through a heat exchanger (i.e., a radiator or cooler). Coolant picks up heat and transfers it to the radiator. Coolant is also used to protect against freezing and boiling, corrosion and pitting of cylinder liners and the engine block.
If a problem occurs in the process of dissipating the engine heat, then this is where you would begin to see equipment failure and engine issues, including engine failure.
What can you do to help maintain your coolant system?
At Schroeder Truck Repair, we advise customers on industry best practices to maintain their coolant systems and prolong the life of their heavy-duty vehicles. Some of these practices can include:
