At Honest-1 Auto Care Davie, we firmly believe that taking good care of your car cooling system is a necessity, not a luxury. So do not hesitate to come to our auto center in Davie to have your vehicle serviced.
The importance of the Cooling System of a vehicle
A cooling system works by sending a liquid coolant through passages in the engine block and heads. As the coolant flows through these passages, it picks up heat from the engine. The heated coolant then passes through a rubber hose to the top inlet of the radiator in front of the car. The coolant flows down through the thin tubes in the radiator; the hot coolant is cooled by the air stream entering the engine compartment from the grill in front of the car. Once the coolant has made its way to the bottom of the radiator and is cooled it returns to the engine through a rubber hose to absorb more heat. The water pump has the job of keeping the fluid moving through the entire system.

On most cars today the radiator is made of thin aluminum tubes with aluminum fins that zigzag between the tubes. Air is pulled through the fins via cooling fans causing the heat in the radiator to be transferred into the air stream and carried away from the vehicle. The radiator has two tanks, one for inlet of heated coolant and the other for outlet of the cooled fluid.
The Water Pump
A water pump is a simple device that will keep the coolant moving through the system as long as the engine is running. The pump is driven by either a fan belt which usually drives another component, a serpentine belt which drives all components, a timing belt, or in some cases gear driven.
Honest-1 Auto Care Davie technicians inspect your cooling system as part of our famous 21-Point Inspection that they perform during every service visit. Your cooling system should be serviced annually to prevent overheating that can severely damage your engine.
Checking up on your coolant is easy to forget, but an engine’s coolant is just as important as oil when it comes to your car. Coolant does raise the boiling point of the cooling system in summer, lowers the freezing point in winter, and protects the engine and cooling system from corrosion. These functions keep the engine from overheating or freezing when driving in extreme climates.
