The cooling system operates by circulating a liquid coolant through various passages in the engine block and cylinder heads. As it travels through these channels, the coolant absorbs heat generated by the engine. Subsequently, the warmed coolant is directed through a flexible rubber hose to the upper inlet of the front-mounted radiator. Within the radiator, the coolant flows through slender tubes, where it is cooled by the airflow entering the engine compartment through the front grille. After the coolant has descended to the radiator’s base and undergone cooling, it returns to the engine via another rubber hose to repeat the heat-absorption process. The responsibility of maintaining fluid movement throughout this entire system lies with the water pump.

Indicators of Overheating:
- Monitoring the temperature gauge. An elevated temperature reading signals the need for an inspection.
- Check for any leakage of green, orange, or yellow fluid beneath your vehicle, which suggests coolant loss and necessitates inspection.
- A squealing noise when engine RPM increases may indicate a loose belt, which can impede the water pump’s circulation.
