Neglecting Your Car's Cooling System Could Lead to Catastrophic Results

Unfortunately, many car owners in America today take their engine cooling systems for granted. Without proper maintenance, a malfunctioning cooling system can cause catastrophic problems. However, the good news is that all you need is a little knowledge to keep your car's cooling system working at optimal levels.

The first thing you should check is your engine coolant level. In most cars, all you need do is remove the radiator cap and check to see if your radiator is topped off with coolant. However, do not try and remove the radiator cap if your car's engine is still hot. Next, check your radiator hoses for any obvious signs of damage or leaks. Most cars have two main hoses that connect to the radiator, known as the lower and upper radiator hoses.
