What causes a Cracked Radiator in my Car?
The Radiator helps keep your Engine from Overheating. A Cracked Radiator prevents the proper amount of Coolant to reach the Engine, which causes the Overheating. The following can cause a Cracked Radiator:
· Rust can destroy the metal in the Radiator causing a crack.
· A faulty Thermostat or a Leaking Head Gasket can cause Overheating or High Coolant Pressure inside the Radiator which can lead to a crack.
· Summer heat makes it more difficult for the Radiator to be cooled by outside air. Not maintaining the Radiator Fluid can lead to Overheating and a Cracked Radiator.
· Cold winter temperatures: If the Radiator Fluid is not maintained properly, it can freeze and expand inside the tank, causing small fissures to become a crack.
To keep your Radiator in good working condition, change the Coolant on a regular basis. If you do not change your coolant enough, the radiator can start to corrode and crack over time. This can cause the Radiator to Leak and the Engine to Overheat.
If you see Coolant Puddles under your car and you need to constantly refill the Coolant, you may have a Cracked Radiator. Contact a Good Mechanic to correctly diagnose and repair your Radiator.
