One of the biggest things that can send your truck to its early grave is a faulty or broken radiator hose. This hose is responsible for transporting the coolant to the radiator, and when it fails it causes problems or damages your engine. Coolant helps regulate your engines temperature helping make sure it stays cool or warm enough while it’s running sometimes the signs of a failing radiator hose aren’t always as easy as looking at your engine’s temperature gauge. Which is why we wanted to tell you about some other signs of a failing radiator hose.
The cooling system and especially the radiator are crucial in keeping your engine from overheating. Your commercial truck engine can produce a large amount of heat, and without a properly functioning radiator, it will certainly overheat. The radiator in your truck is filled with a mixture of water and anti-freeze. This mixture is moved through your cooling system usually by a water pump.
One of the most important parts of a semi truck or heavy-duty truck is the radiator. The radiator is an essential part of the cooling system for your engine. Large truck engines can produce massive amounts of heat. A properly functioning radiator can help reduce the heat on the engine to help it run better. No one has time to be broke down on the side of the road with an overheated engine.
