Common Car radiator Problems, Car radiator Maintenance.

How Hot Is Too Hot?

Most engines today are designed to operate within a "normal" temperature range of about 195 to 220 degrees F. A relatively constant operating temperature is absolutely essential for proper emissions control, good fuel economy and performance.

A 50/50 mixture of water and ethylene glycol antifreeze in the cooling system will boil at 225 degrees if the cap is open. But as long as the system is sealed and holds pressure, a car radiator cap rated at 15 psi will increase the boiling temperature of a 50/50 coolant blend up to 265 degrees. If the concentration of antifreeze to water is upped to 70/30 (the maximum recommended), the boiling temperature under 15 psi of pressure goes up to 276 degrees.

So does this mean a cooling system with a maximum concentration of antifreeze in the coolant (70 precent) can run as hot as 276 degrees without boiling over? Theoretically yes - but realistically no. The clearances in most of today's engines are much, much closer than those in engines built in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Piston-to-cylinder clearances are much tighter to reduce lower emissions. Valve stem-guide clearances also are closer to reduce oil consumption and emissions, too. Plus, many engines today have aluminium heads with overhead cams. Such engines don't handle higher than normal temperatures well, and are very vulnerable to heat damage if the engine gets too hot.
Anytime temperatures climb beyond the normal range, the engine is running in the danger zone.

Consequences of Your Car radiator Overheating

If the engine overheats, the first thing that will happen is a petrol engine will start to detonate. The engine will ping and start to lose power under load as the combination of heat and pressure exceed the octane rating of the fuel. If the detonation problem persists, the hammer-like blows may damage the rings, pistons or rod bearings.

Overheating can also cause pre-ignition. Hot spots develop inside the combustion chamber that becomes a source of ignition for the fuel. The erratic combustion can cause detonation as well as engine run-on in older vehicles with carburettors. Hot spots can also be very damaging and burn holes right through the top of pistons.

Another consequence of overheating may be a blown head gasket. Heat makes aluminum swell almost three times faster than cast iron.

The resulting stress can distort the head and make it swell in areas that are hottest, like those between exhaust valves in adjoining cylinders, and areas that have restricted coolant flow like the narrow area that separates the cylinders. The typical aluminum head swells most in the middle, which can crush the head gasket if the head gets hot enough. This will cause a loss of torque in the gasket allowing coolant and combustion leaks to occur when the head cools.

Overheating of your car radiator is also a common cause of seizure and breakage to the engine.

Wait, there's more. If the coolant gets hot enough to boil, it may cause old hoses or an age-weakened car radiator to burst under the increased pressure. Pistons may swell up and scuff or seize in their bores, causing serious engine damage. Exhaust valve stems may stick or scuff in their guides.

This, in turn, may cause valves to hang open which can damage pistons, valves and other components. And if coolant gets into the crankcase, you can kiss the bearings and bottom end of the engine goodbye.

A HOT warning lamp should never be ignored. Running at reduced power in the event of coolant loss, most engines will suffer serious damage if they overheat.

Causes of the car radiator to overheat

Overheating of your car radiator, this can cause decreasing of the cooling system and to dispel heat, such as a low coolant level, loss of coolant (through internal or external leaks), poor thermal conductivity within the engine due to the accumulated debris in the water jackets, poor air flow through the car radiator, a slippery fan clutch defective thermostat, an ineffective electric fan, a reduced lower car radiator hose, an eroded or loose water pump impeller or even a broken car radiator cap.

One of the fundamental laws of nature says that heat always flows from an area of higher temperature on an area of low temperature flow never the other way around.

The only way to cool hot metal, is therefore to keep in constant contact with a cooler liquid. And the only way to do this is to keep the coolant in constant circulation. As soon as circulation stops, either because of an error with the water pump, thermostat, or loss of coolant, it starts the temperature to rise and the motor starts to overheat.
The coolant must reduce also the heat that it sucks through the block and Head(s).

Therefore, the car radiator must be able to its job; the help of an efficient fan at low speed is required.

Finally, the thermostat must be doing its job, the thermostats job is to keep the engine at the average temperature in the normal range. When the thermostat is not open, it effectively blocks the flow of the coolant and the engine will overheat.

What to check when it comes to maintaining your car radiator:

Thermostat – Severe overheating can often damage a good thermostat.

If the car engine has overheated due to another overheating problem the thermostat should be tested or replaced, before the engine service.
One way to check the thermostat, start the engine and feel the upper car radiator hose (or use a non-contact infrared thermometer to read its temperature). The hose should hot feel hot until the engine has warmed-up and the thermostat opens. If the hose is not hot, it means that the thermostat is not opening.

Another way to test the thermostat is to remove it and place the thermostat in a pot with boiling water (it should open). You can check the exact opening temperature with a thermometer.

If the thermostat must be replaced, you can install one with the same temperature as the original. The most cars and light commercial vehicles since 1971 require thermostats with 192 or 195-degree evaluations. With a cooler thermostat (160 or 180) in an attempt to "cure a tendency to overheat" can fuel, oil, ring wear and emissions increase?

Newer vehicles with computerized engine controls can prevent wrong thermostat the computer system in closed-loop-resulting in greater performance and emission problems if the engine does not have the normal operating temperature.

Cooling system leaks – loss of coolant as a result of a leak is probably the most common cause of overheating. Possible leak points include hoses, car radiator, heater core, water pump, thermostat housing, head gasket, plug, automatic transmission oil cooler, cylinder head(s) and block.

Make a careful Visual inspection of the entire cooling system and then pressure test of cooling system and car radiator cap. A pressure test, past the cylinder head gasket and the cracks in the head or block show internal leaks as seeping.

It is important that the car radiator cap is pressure tested, also, because a weak Cap (or one with a low pressure rating for the application) is the coolant boiling point lower and escape from the car radiator coolant can.

Fan - mechanical fans, which most overheating problems through a faulty fan clutch - caused, if a missing fan Panel can reduce the fan cooling effectiveness of up to 50 percent (depending on the fan away from the car radiator), that the motor may overheat in hot weather or, if you work it hard.

Broken fan clutches are a common and often overlooked cause of overheating. Shearing characteristics of coupling fluid deteriorated gradually in the course of time with an average loss in efficiency of about 200 u/min per year. Slipping can finally reach the point where effective cooling is no longer possible and overheating results.

Check with an electric fan, whether the fan on when the engine is hot and when the air conditioner is on cycles. If the fans come on, check the fan connections motor wiring, relays and temperature sensor. Try jumping the fan directly to the battery. If it is running, the problem in the wiring harness, relay or sensor is. If it does not run the fan motor is bad and must be replaced.

Water pump - Any wobble in the shaft or seepage you should replacement it. In some cases, a pump can cause an engine to overheat, if the wheel wings corrosion are heavily eroded, or if the impeller of the wave has come loose. The wrong pump can even overheat a motor. Some with serpentine drive belts require a special water pump that turns in the opposite direction of those who used the same engine with ordinary v-belts.
Belts & hoses - check belt tension and state. A loose belt that slides can prevent that the water pump in circulation coolant fast enough or the fan of the turn quickly for proper cooling.

The state of the hoses should be checked also. Recommend new hoses if the old ones are over 5 years old.
Sometimes, a lower car radiator hose under vacuum at high speed can reduce and restrict the flow of the coolant from the car radiator in the engine. This can happen if the reinforcing spring in the hose is missing or corrupted.

Car radiator - Most common problems are car radiator blockage (internal and external) and leaks. Dirt, bugs and debris can dispel blocking air flow through the core and the reduction of the heating capacity. Internal corrosion and a collection of deposits can also inhibit coolant circulation and reduce cooling. Use an infrared thermometer aim it at the surface of the car radiator for cold spots "scan". If clogged, the car radiator should be cleaned also removed or be replaced.

Use back-flushing method, the cooling system and/or cleaning chemicals can rust and hard water scale needs to be removed, If the cooling system refills, make sure that you get it full. Circulation and cooling can interfere with air pockets in the vehicle cooling system.

Overload of the engine. Cooling systems in many passenger cars today are marginal and have little excess capacity; towing or high speed mountain drive in hot weather will cause extra heat.

OE issue or user negligence?

Overheating problems is in general, your responsibility falling within the categories of either user or technician, include the following:
Car radiator - older copper and aluminum car radiator tend to restrict the flow of the coolant clogged up.
Thermostats - either installed incorrectly or sticking shut.

Water pumps: Failure to replace older or faulty pumps or failing pumps or a new pump properly.
Heater core leaking - a frequently occurring problem.

Coolant leaks from either hose connections or from the cylinder head as a result of overheating.
Bad car radiator hoses or belts.

Car radiator owners maintain their cooling systems not often enough, also as they should. As technicians, coolant is changed, if your coolant passages experience build up and mud, coolant want flow fast enough. Coolant should be changed at least every two years or 30,000 miles or they lose their effectiveness and the mixture of antifreeze and water should be 50 / 50.

A mixture with more than 50 percent antifreeze causes freezing, and with less than 50 percent, the engine can crack. In addition to the system being flushed, when the coolant is changed.

Oil must also regularly change. Old, dirty oil is not as fast flowing and cooling will impede.

The overheating "Hot" list

Some engines tend to overheat more than others, but this is not necessarily because these engines have flaws in their designs.

The problem is that some engines are designed, that they have less tolerance for overheating conditions. This means that if a situation which will result in overheating; these engines have less room for error, and are more likely to overheat.

But it will be always a problem caused by the overheating from the outset, and the technician has to find this problem.
