HEAVY-DUTY TRUCK COOLANT SYSTEM REPAIR IN LITCHFIELD, OH & EVANS CITY, PA
YOUR COOLANT SYSTEM EXPLAINED
Heavy-duty diesel engines create a lot of heat, and if that heat isn’t properly dispersed, your engine is at risk of catastrophic failure. Engines that overheat are known to blow their head gaskets, and may even have pistons seize up within the engine block itself. To disperse an adequate amount of heat, a water pump forces coolant through your engine. This coolant absorbs radiant heat and then flows into a heavy-duty radiator where it’s dispersed.
COMMON COOLANT SYSTEM ISSUES
FAN CLUTCH ISSUES
One of the most common coolant system issues is a malfunctioning fan clutch. Your fan clutch is what engages and disengages your cooling fan. If this clutch fails, your fan may never engage, making it significantly harder for your radiator to disperse heat. At Hook-N-Haul, we consider ourselves to be coolant system experts. We’ll have your fan clutch repaired in a matter of moments.
Over time, the fluid within your coolant system can break down. When this fluid breaks down, sludge and other gunk is often left behind. This debris can clog your radiator which in turn restricts the amount of coolant that can flow through it. This makes it significantly more difficult to disperse heat, and will likely cause your engine to overheat. A plugged radiator may also put more stress on your water pump for it has to work significantly harder to get coolant through your radiator.
