Cooling systems are responsible for two main things: making sure your engine doesn't overheat and providing heat to the A/C when needed. Due to the constant work of this system and the fluid circulation, it can have problems more often than other things. If you want to catch some issues before they get serious or at least know why something is happening, continue reading.
Overheating happens when the coolant is either completely gone or too low. If you spot this, it might be too late to top off your fluid, but it's a warning to drive to the nearest repair shop. Continuing to drive with an overheating engine can result in a lot more than a basic repair, so make sure to have it serviced, repaired, and whatever else is needed.
When you turn on the heater, the heat actually comes from the cooling system. To be more precise, it comes from taking away the heat from the cooling liquid and transferring it to the heater core. If you start noticing that the A/C is acting strange, the problem might actually be the cooling system.
Check Engine Light
The check engine light is the best way to know there is something wrong with your car. It can be turned on by a lot of things, one of them being cooling or overheating problems. Make sure to visit a mechanic if you notice the light turning on along with other symptoms from the list.
Oil Pressure Is High
Your oil pressure is linked directly to the temperature and therefore to the cooling. If the cooling system is not working properly, the engine starts to overheat, causing the oil pressure to rise. We strongly advise you to take care of this problem before it is too late.
Car Refuses To Start
If your car experiences a lot of continuous cooling problems or overheating, it can enter safe mode - making it unable to start. A refusal to start can also be caused by serious engine damage. This situation calls for towing services, so you don't damage the vehicle further.
