Regular Cooling System Checks Can Prevent Overheating

Here at Honda World, we make a practice of helping our drivers and others to keep their vehicles running. Important to this effort is making sure that engine temperatures stay within prescribed ranges. Motor temperatures that fluctuate widely or tend toward overheating can be signs of deeper problems in the cooling system. Some common issues are fluid loss, hose breakage, and fan failure.

Cooling fluid is the lifeblood of the system and keeping this fluid at proper operating levels is a key consideration. Age or damage to vehicle components such as the radiator block can allow fluid to escape from the system. By finding and plugging such leaks promptly, vehicle operators can avoid this fate.

Cooling fluid is conducted through engine blocks by a network of hoses. These hoses are often flexible and weak and are thus subject to periodic breakage. Thankfully, drivers can prevent this occurrence by carefully and thoroughly inspecting their hoses for cracks, splits, or soft areas. Vehicle operators who locate damages of these kinds should waste no time in replacing affected cooling hoses.

Yet another possible area of concern is the cooling fan. Cooling fans move volumes of air over radiator cores and thus keep engine temperatures at proper levels. Vehicle owners can proactively keep their fans in working order by having trained and certified mechanics check these key components on regular time schedules.
