Truck water tank is also called radiator. As an important component of water-cooled engine, it can absorb the heat of the cylinder block to maintain the proper working temperature of the engine.
There are two main types of automotive radiators: aluminum and copper, the former is used for general passenger cars, and the latter is used for large commercial vehicles.
If the radiator is used for too long, and the usual maintenance is not timely, the inside of the water tank will become very dirty. When cleaning, you must use a regular manufacturer’s water tank cleaner. In addition, it is best to use antifreeze coolant as a heat dissipation medium in the engine. Some people think that there is nothing wrong with using coolant in this hot weather. The coolant has anti-rust function.
Failure analysis: The working environment of the vehicle is relatively harsh. If the bracket of the engine radiator is not checked at ordinary times, it is easy to appear loose. The looseness of the water tank is likely to cause its wear and tear.
Solution: Usually, pay more attention to whether the fixing bolts between the various parts of the radiator are loose.
Failure analysis: The engine radiator is used for too long, and there will be leakage or blockage due to corrosion and other reasons. And some friends do not want to replace the new water tank in order to be cheap, and the result is that the engine fails due to high temperature.
Solution: If the radiator is not worth repairing, replace it with a new one as soon as possible.
The radiator is directly related to the use of the engine and the water temperature. Do not make small mistakes, which may cause serious consequences of engine damage.
