The combined parts that keep your engine from overheating while it can cause tens of thousands of explosions per minute, mainly the radiator, any radiator fans, the thermostat, cooling hoses, and water pump.

How the Car Cooling Systems Work

Although gasoline engines have developed a lot, they are still not that efficient at turning chemical energy into mechanical power. Most of the energy in the gasoline (perhaps 7­0%) is turned into heat, and it is the job of the cooling system to take care of that heat. In fact, the cooling system on a car driving down the freeway dissipates enough heat for two average-sized houses! The primary job of the cooling system is to keep the engine from overheating by transferring this heat to the air, but the cooling system also has several other important functions.

The car’s engine runs best at a fairly high temperature. When the engine is cold, components wear out faster, and the engine is becomes less efficient and emits more pollution. So another important job of the cooling system is to allow the engine to heat up as fast as possible, and then to keep the engine at a constant temperature.

Different components of the cooling system are –
