Cooling System Parts
The engine cooling system is a vital component of any combustion engine, designed to regulate the temperature of the engine and prevent it from overheating.
The cooling system is typically composed of a series of parts, including the radiator, coolant, water pump, thermostat, and hoses.
Coolant flows through the engine block and absorbs the heat generated by the combustion process. The heated coolant then flows through the radiator, where it is cooled by airflow and returned to the engine to absorb more heat.
The water pump circulates the coolant throughout the system and ensures a constant flow of coolant.
The thermostat regulates the temperature of the coolant by opening and closing to allow more or less coolant to flow through the system, depending on the temperature of the engine.
The hoses connect the various components of the system and transport the coolant.
