The Chilly Anatomy of Your Car
Your car's cooling system and radiator are like a refreshing ice bath for your engine. Here's what's involved:
- Radiator: Think of it as your car's personal air conditioner. It rapidly dissipates heat using many small tubes and a honeycomb of fins.
- Water pump: This one's your engine's personal water park ride, circulating coolant through all the engine's nooks and crannies.
- Thermostat: It’s like the temperature police, controlling the flow of coolant depending on your engine's mood (read: temperature).
- Hoses: They're the cooling system's messengers, connecting the engine and remote mounted components.
- Fan: Just like any good fan, it keeps things cool, drawing air through the radiator.
