Many drivers may not think too much about the radiator in their vehicle until they see the needle on the instrument panel edging into the hot zone, or even more drastic, see steam coming out from the hood of their car. Do you know the job of a radiator? Its main function is to dissipate the heat that builds up in the cooling system.

How can a radiator go bad? As coolant travels through the radiator, the internal passageways can develop a layer of scale. Debris in the coolant (such as metal particles) can cause a blockage in the radiator tubes. When one component fails to work properly, there is a domino effect--other parts throughout the cooling system also run the risk of failure. The three main components that can fail are the thermostat, water pump, and heater core.

Wondering what happens when your radiator goes bad? If a needed radiator repair is neglected, more than likely you will need to replace your radiator.

There are four easily recognizable symptoms of what happens if your wheel alignment is bad:

  1. The tires are unevenly worn
  2. The car pulls to one side or direction
  3. Strange vibrations when the car is moving
  4. The steering feels loose or sloppy

Possibly you have already noticed some of these symptoms. You might think there isn’t a rush to have your car alignment checked, but in the long run, it can cause even more serious problems. If you wait to have your car repaired, the following problems usually happen:

  • You’ll spend more money than usual replacing tires that have worn out prematurely,
  • Poor fuel efficiency will also cost you more money at the pump, and
  • It could affect other components, such as brakes, shocks, and suspension, costing even more money to repair.
