About A-Z's Coolant Repair Services in Texas

While engines naturally put out a lot of heat, heavy-duty diesel engines are a whole different matter. Being responsible for moving thousands of pounds of steel and potentially thousands more if hauling a trailer, diesel engines put off an immense amount of heat that needs to go somewhere, otherwise, it can significantly damage the engine’s components. Your truck’s engine cooling system is designed to prevent overheating by both using coolant to absorb heat from the engine and your radiator and its fan clutch to suck in external cold air to air-cool your engine. These work in conjunction to give your engine proper and effective cooling.

Because of the necessity of these cooling systems, it’s important to ensure they work properly and efficiently. If you find yourself facing any issues with your systems, call and schedule an appointment with A-Z Truck & Trailer Repair today.

Common Coolant System Issues

Faulty Coolant

One of the most common coolant issues is faulty coolant. If your coolant is faulty in some way, this can easily result in an overheating engine. Firstly, make sure there’s enough coolant in the reservoir. If there isn’t, you could be facing a coolant leak thanks to cracks in the head gasket or engine itself. When adding more coolant, keep an eye on the ground for any signs. If a leak isn’t the problem, there may be air pockets or bubbles in the radiator or reservoir. These can result from cylinder liner deterioration, a loose hose clamp, or from improper flushing. Also, keep an eye on the coolant’s consistency and quality; the ideal mixture is 50% water, 44% anti-freeze, and 6% conditioner. The coolant should also be free of any dirt or debris that could create blockages down the line.

A Malfunctioning Cooling Fan

If your radiator fan or fan clutch faces a malfunction, this will definitely cause your engine to overheat. At first, a problem with the fan may not be obvious to the eye, but look out for signs like excessive spin or the fan’s lack of engagement when the engine is hot and vice versa. Problems with other components can also affect your fan clutch, such as a plugged radiator or too much antifreeze. If you can confirm you have a fan clutch problem, it’s highly recommended to not replace the part unless the problem is specifically identified or if you don’t have proper tools; in the latter case, bring it to a qualified shop like A-Z Truck & Trailer Repair for proper repair.
