cooling sys comp

cooling system components

Give a definition of the pressure cap in the cooling system. The cap is actually a pressure release valve, and on cars it is usually set to 15 psi.
Describe the radiator as it relates to the cooling system. A cooling device, as in automotive engines, through which water or other fluids circulate as a coolant.
Describe the shroud as it relates to the cooling system. The fan shroud basically houses the fan blades securing it in place and keeping it from damaging the other engine components that may disturb the smooth and even operation of the engine.
What is the radiator hose? A radiator hose is a one that transfers coolant from an engine's water pump to its radiator.
What is the V-Belt? More commonly known as a "fan belt," a V-belt is the rubber belt that drives such things as the alternator, air conditioning compressor, power steering pump and waterpump. It's called a V-belt because of its "V" shaped cross-section.
Describe how the thermostat works in the car's cooling system. The thermostat in most cars is about 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter. Its job is to block the flow of coolant to the radiator until the engine has warmed up. When the engine is cold, no coolant flows through the engine.
What is the fan as it relates to the car's cooling system? The fan draws air through the radiator when you aren't moving fast enough to get things cooled down.
What is the cooling system water pump? It provides circulation of the antifreeze through the cooling system. A water pump pushes the coolant through the passages (water jackets) in the engine cylinder block and cylinder head and then out into the radiator.
What are water jackets in the cooling system? The water jacket in an internal combustion engine is a series of cavities and passages that carry coolant throughout the engine.
