Operating without an adequate coolant system is impossible. 

So how does a coolant system work, you may ask? The coolant that flows through the engine absorbs heat which is then dispersed using a heavy-duty radiator. Coolant is typically moved through the engine using a heavy-duty water pump and is cooled in the radiator using large fan blades or other similar processes. 

Symptoms of a Bad Coolant System

The end goal of a coolant system is to disperse heat, but when the system is unable to achieve this goal, the engine will overheat. There are several reasons why a coolant system may fail. We’ve put together a list of the most common culprits below. 

Broken Thermostat

The thermostat in your coolant system is responsible for increasing or decreasing the rate of coolant flow. If the engine is working harder, the coolant system will work harder as well. 

Block Diesel Injectors

If your fuel injectors are clogged, your engine will have to work very hard to compensate. This may cause the engine to overheat. 

Hose Leaks

Your coolant system is comprised of many hoses. If one of them leaks, chances are you’re losing coolant and not absorbing enough heat. 

Damaged Radiator

A radiator may become damaged by road debris or get worn down through age and use. Damaged radiator fans or other internal mechanisms may cause the engine to overheat. 

Lack of Coolant Maintenance

Coolant is a fluid that should be changed at regular intervals. Over time coolant loses its ability to absorb heat, and as such, may cause the engine to overheat. 

If you observe your engine overheating, we highly recommend you bring your heavy-duty vehicle in for service. Here at Kuntz Truck Repair, we offer a full suite of coolant system repair and maintenance services.
