Whether we’re talking about your car, truck, or tractor, there is one very important component that helps to keep vehicles cool enough to operate—the radiator. This radiator functions by removing heat from the engine through coolant, moving the coolant throughout a series of coils. This cooled air then flows back into your engine to keep it from overheating.
If your radiator is leaking, that means you’re losing coolant. This will cause your vehicle’s engine to overheat, and break down. Some individuals believe they can still drive with a damaged or malfunctioning radiator, but this really isn’t safe. A leaking radiator is one of the most common problems our mechanics get called out for—and you really should turn to a pro for this kind of problem.
