Heavy-duty diesel engines create a lot of heat when hauling heavy loads. This means operation would be impossible without an adequate coolant system. Although there are multiple ways of cooling your major components, the most common is definitely a large radiator-based setup. By using a water pump to push coolant through your engine, your system is able to disperse heat and remain at a good operating temperature. Other methods of cooling your system include oil coolers and transmission coolers.
Tell-Tale Symptoms of a Bad Coolant System
An overheating engine can be caused by a wide variety of things. Whether it be a coolant leak or a full-blown water pump failure, engines overheat all the time. What many don’t realize is that if you drive for too long on an overheating engine, you’re likely to turn a small issue into a big one. Overheating engines that aren’t cooled down in time may blow their head gasket, seize their pistons, or worst case, blow up entirely.
