Cooling System Signs and Symptoms

Signs and Symptoms

Maintaining your cooling system helps to extend the life of your vehicle and to avoid costly repairs. Your cooling system affects everything from fuel mileage to your vehicle's defroster.

  • Overheating: This is the main result of cooling system failure. Possible causes could include water pump failure, cooling fan malfunction, thermostat failure, belt failure, restricted air flow to the radiator, and low coolant level.
  • Leaks: These can be hard to find. Be sure to use the specified coolant for your application and distilled water when filling your system. Antifreeze/coolant puddles are the most common indicator of this issue.
  • Underheating: This is a less common issue but can easily be indentified if you have a temperature gauge. Another simple identifier is if your heater isn't blowing warm air. This is commonly caused by low coolant levels or thermostat failure.
  • Temperature Fluctuation: If your vehicles temperature is fluctuating up and down during operation you likely have low coolant levels. This causes the temperature to rise and fall very rapidly as you are driving. Be sure to 'use the specified antifreeze/coolant type for your vehicle and distilled water when filling your cooling system.
