Cooling System

Leah’s Automotive is proud to offer BG cooling system flushes and Liqui Moly Radiator cleaners as part of our product line up.

Key Cooling System Components:


The radiator plays a critical role in heat dissipation. Fins surrounding the radiator facilitate the cooling process as air passes over them. Over time, radiator cores may become clogged, necessitating flushing or replacement.

Radiator Hoses
Responsible for transferring coolant from the radiator to the engine block, radiator hoses are designed to withstand extreme heat and pressure. Regular replacement, as per your vehicle maintenance guide, is essential.

The radiator thermostat regulates the coolant directed to the engine for effective heat management during operation. A malfunctioning thermostat can lead to engine overheating, potentially causing severe damage. Watch for signs such as extremely high or low temperature readings. Always allow your engine to cool down before inspecting the radiator, ensuring the radiator cap is cool to the touch before opening.

Water Pump
The water pump, driven by a belt connected to the engine’s crankshaft, functions as a centrifugal pump. It circulates fluid whenever the engine is running. The fluid travels through the engine block, cylinder head, radiator, and back to the pump. The water pump utilizes centrifugal force to draw fluid from the center continuously, with the inlet strategically placed near the center for efficient fluid return from the radiator.
