Radiators for Sale

Pro Auto USA has got you covered when you need to replace your vehicle’s radiator. Your vehicle’s radiator provides cooling to your engine’s hardworking parts, and a leaky or malfunctioning radiator can cause your engine to overheat, damaging your engine’s internal components and leaving you stranded and facing costly repairs to key engine parts.

Most internal combustion engines are water-cooled by means of a radiator. The majority of cars and trucks manufactured after 1980 have radiators made from aluminum due to its light weight and ability to effectively transfer heat. Radiators serve as a heat exchanger and have many tubes that are filled with a combination of water and antifreeze. The vehicle’s water pump circulates this coolant mixture through the engine block allowing it to absorb the heat produced during the combustion process. The heated mixture is then returned to the radiator for cooling and the process repeats. The liquid travels through the radiator’s tubes, which are surrounded by fins to allow more contact with air. Radiators are usually situated at the front of the vehicle, behind the grille, to capture the airflow created by the vehicle’s motion.

Most radiators also have a cooling fan that assists in creating enough airflow to cool the liquid mixture. Even though a radiator cools the liquid after it leaves the engine block, the fluid in the radiator is very hot. Even a small puncture in the radiator will produce steam, a sign that the radiator is malfunctioning. Radiators are also prone to corrosion from the coolant and can become clogged. Making sure your vehicle’s engine is staying cool is one of the best ways to ensure a long life for your car or truck. Running a vehicle with a faulty radiator or cooling system component can cause major damage the engine’s heads or block, which can be very expensive or impossible to repair.
