Parts that You Should Inspect in your BMW for a bad radiator

Description:

There are many systems in your BMW that work for the efficient running of the vehicle. One such system is the cooling system which prevents the engine from overheating due to the combustion process. The radiator is a crucial part of the cooling system of your BMW through which the heated coolant circulates in order to get cool. If the radiator malfunctions, then it can lead to overheating of the engine. Go through the to know the parts that you should inspect in your BMW for a bad radiator. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Parts that You Should Inspect in your BMW for a bad radiator


1
Parts that You Should Inspect in Your BMW for a
Bad Radiator
2
Your BMWs radiator actively dissipates the heat
that builds up in the cooling system.
3
The debris running through the cooling system
cause a blockage to develop in those tight
radiator tubes which decrease the radiators
cooling.
4
When one component fails to work properly, other
parts throughout the cooling system has also run
the risk of failure.
5
The parts that commonly cease working after the
radiator goes bad are the thermostat, heater
core, and water pump.
6
Thermostat
7
In order to control the temperature, the
thermostat is placed at the end of the bottom
radiator hose and directly regulates the flow of
water through the cooling system.
8
When the engine reaches ideal operating
temperature, the thermostat opens and allows the
cooling system to flow freely.
9
But when the radiator stops working properly, too
much pressure is put on the thermostat, often
causing it to stop working.
10
And when the thermostat fails, the valve inside
gets stuck either open or closed and this will
result in the overheating or under-heating of the
engine.
11
Heater Core
12
Like the radiator, the inside of the heater core
has a similar network of small gauge tubing,
which works to produce hot air for the heating
system.
13
If scales or debris break away from the radiator
piping, it could end up stuck in the small tubing
of the heater core.
14
And when the radiator fails, causing the engine
to overheat, excessive pressure and temperatures
cause the connections to the heater core to
break.
15
The noticeable signs are that your car windows
start to fog up or front floorboards may feel wet
to the touch when the heater core starts to leak.
16
Water Pump
17
The water pump uses an impeller to continuously
move the coolant through the hoses and
passageways of the cooling system.
18
Any contaminants or tough debris breaking away
from the radiator will cause abrasions and other
damage to the plastic impeller.
19
When the radiator stops cooling the fluid before
it moves past the impeller, the high temperatures
could also cause damage to the plastic parts.
20
Eventually, pieces of the rotating impeller will
break off and disrupt the flow speed of the
coolant.
