Daily Maintenance And Maintenance Of Radiator

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.

Common malfunctions:

  • The hose of the engine radiator will be aged and easily broken after long-term use. Water can easily enter the radiator. When the hose is broken during driving, the sprayed high-temperature water will form a large mass of water vapor and spray out from under the engine cover. When this phenomenon occurs, you should immediately choose a safe place to park, and then take emergency measures to solve it.
  • Under normal circumstances, when the radiator enters the water, the joint of the hose is most likely to have cracks and water leakage. At this time, you can use scissors to cut off the damaged part, then reinsert the hose to it water inlet joint, and use a clip or The wire is tight. If the crack is in the middle of the hose, you can use tape to wrap the leaking crack. Before wrapping, wipe the hose clean. 
  • After the leaking part is dry, wrap the tape around the leaking part of the hose. Due to the water in the hose when the engine is working The pressure is high, so wrap the tape as tightly as possible. If you don’t have tape on hand, you can also wrap plastic wrap around the rip first, then cut strips of rags and wrap them around the hose. 
  • Sometimes the hose has a large crack and may still leak water after being wrapped. At this time, the water tank cover can be opened to reduce the pressure in the water channel and reduce leakage.

Daily maintenance:

  1. The radiator is deformed and not ventilated
  • Symptoms: The fins on the engine radiator are curled, or there are impurities in the middle, which cause poor heat dissipation and cause high engine temperature.
  • Cause: Directly flush the cooling water tank with a high-pressure water gun, flush the cooling fins or the usual cleaning is insufficient, causing the middle of the cooling fins of the cooling water tank to be blocked.
  • Solution: If it is a small area of curling, you can use a screwdriver to straighten the heat sink. If the scope is too large, the curled (or blocked) heat sink can be removed, but the scope of removal should not be too large.
  • When using the water gun to clear it, adjust it to spray water in mist form, and clean it tank with a neutral cleaning agent. When repairing the vehicle, pay attention to the layout of the pipeline and try to avoid contact with the water tank. It is unavoidable to be fixed and bandaged to prevent wear and tear of the cooling water tank.
Daily Maintenance And Maintenance Of Radiator
  1. Dirty inner the radiator is not smooth

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.

  1. The radiator bracket is loose, and the  radiator cracks by itself

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.

  1. Replace the radiator in time

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.

Daily Maintenance And Maintenance Of Radiator

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.
