The engine in your Honda needs to avoid overheating to keep working right. What does the best job of helping it stay relatively cool? Your factory radiator.
But how do car radiators work? It all starts with coolant. This fluid's job: to absorb the heat your engine produces as it runs. It does so while flowing through a radiator hose and between an inlet and outlet (with the help of a water pump). As it travels, a radiator cap condenses it. This helps the coolant absorb as much heat as it can. The fins on your radiator core then expel the heat, and a fan scatters it. The result: an engine that works better and lasts longer.
When a radiator goes bad, though, you can start to see all sorts of problems, like heater and AC system malfunctions and engine overheats, if not outright engine failure. Luckily, the signs are easy to recognize. The most obvious is fin damage. Other symptoms of radiator failure range from abnormal engine noise and sludgy coolant to the sweet, syrupy smell of ethylene glycol, which indicates coolant leakage.
If you think you have radiator problems, take a look at your temperature gauge first. It'll let you know if your engine's too hot. Then, run an inspection. If it calls for radiator replacement, avoid the aftermarket. Our auto parts store has the best solution: a genuine OEM radiator. Your brand designs them specifically for its models, guaranteeing they'll work together.
