Important components and functions of the cooling system of an engine

the Cooling system of an engine

The cooling system of an engine is used to control the engine temperature and its performance. It prevents the engine from overheating otherwise it will burn. Another job of this system is to heat up the engine as fast as it can and then maintain it at the constant temperature.

Components of the cooling system of an engine:

Radiator

It is the major part of the cooling system. There is a fluid in the inner core of the radiator and it transfers the heat to the cooling fins that effectively remove heat from the coolant.

Water Pump

It decreases the chilled anti-freeze from the radiator and forces it through the engine block, heater core, and cylinder head then reverses it to the radiator. It prevents the engine from overheating.

Steel Plugs

You can also call it freeze plugs. It is specially made for the holes to seal it in the cylinder heads and engine block. Without anti-freeze protection, it may push out in the cold weather.

Head Gasket

It helps to cover/seal the most important part of the engine. Without it, cylinder pressure, oil, and anti-freeze will mix up.

Bypass System

This system helps coolant to pass through the engine and then bypass the radiator and helps the temperature in balancing.

Thermostat

Thermostat is the very effective part of the cooling system of an engine which controls the small amount of operating temperature. If the vehicle engine is cold, the thermostat will close so the engine can warm-up speedily. It will open when the temperature allows coolant to go through the radiator.

Hoses

There are so many hoses in the cooling system that connects all the parts of this system. There are two types of hoses rubber hoses and metal hoses. The major function of these hoses is to transfer liquid in the parts of the engine. No matter how much pressure is inside, hoses are able to handle it.

Fan Clutch

It is the front part of the water pump. It has the ability to sense the temperature of the air that comes from the radiator. It helps to reduce noise and save energy of the engine.

These parts are very important for the vehicle and also very expensive. But AS Auto Parts is selling these parts at affordable prices. AS Auto Parts is the best online auto parts Store Winston Salem NC.
