How does an radiator cool fluids?
First of all I think you are confused. The engine oil is not cooled directly by a cooler. The engine its self is cooled by a cooling system. Which uses coolant and a radiator. Answer Coolant travels through the radiator and is cooled by a combination of factors. There are air dams or cowls that gather moving air and direct it through the fins on the radiator. ther is a fan that is temperature sensitive that comes on and blows air across the fins. Most always, there are transmission coolers built into the radiator, but kept separate from the coolant to prevent the fluid from getting too hot and damaging the transmission. On some radiators there are oil coolers built into the radiator to help cool the oil much like the transmission coolers serve.

Thanks for the feedback!
Answer . No coolant circulation could be:\nStuck thermostat\nDefective water pump
How do you identify the cooling line that returns fluid back to transmission after cooling it is it the lower line located on the radiator?
touch it ,the cooler one is usually return
Unless your radiator has a leak, the radiator fluid stays in the radiator.
Radiator have metal fins which increases total surface area of the metal body which cooling effect and hence increase the efficiency to maximum cooling effect.
Only plain water goes into the radiator. The Above is Wrong A mixture of Antifreeze and distilled water (some people even say de-ionized distilled water). The antifreeze b…ottle will tell the ratio to give specific freezing and boiling temperature of the fluid but for most of the U. S., half and half is fine. Check your owners manual or ask at the auto parts store for the type of antifreeze recommended for your car. There are different kinds.
The basic rule of thermodynamics is that heat goes from where it's hot to where it's not. The coolant in a vehicle takes (draws or sinks) heat from the engine, and this heats …the coolant. The hot coolant carries off the heat, and then flows through the radiator. Air passing the elements of the radiator, because it is cooler, takes (again, draws or sinks) heat from the radiator's fins, which transfer the heat of the coolant out. The hot coolant loses heat energy as it flows through the radiator, and heat from that coolant is passing through the metal radiator elements into the air flowing past. The radiator sets up a relatively large surface area to that passing air so that "a lot" of heat transfer can take place. There is what is called a thermal gradient across the elements in the radiator. Hot coolant inside and relatively cool air outside those elements set the ends of the gradient. Heat goes from where it is hot, the coolant, to where is it not, the air. If you guessed that there must also be a thermal gradient across the metal of the engine between the combustion chambers and the coolant chanels in the block and head, you'd be right. That thermal gradient drives heat out of the cylinder walls and head into the coolant in the coolant channels. It's just that simple. Remember that any time a temperature differetial exists, a thermal gradient exists. A thermal gradient is the "force" of heat transfer in the science of thermodynamics. Easy as pie.
Answer The cast iron in the block is starting to rust. Drain the radiator, put in a good radiator flush solution and follow the directions, then fill the radiato…r with the right coolant. Since you're already having rust problems, put in some rust inhibitor. You may need to clean it again and put in more rust inhibitor after things settle down.
if you run your engine without antifreeze your car will overheat and ruin the engine.
If you are smelling the sweet but unpleasant aroma of antifreeze, your vehicle is leaking it somewhere. A lot of the time the culprit is the water pump. They have a weep hole …and when the bearing starts to fail it will begging leaking from this hole. I would start by getting myself a flashlight and start scanning your engine's water hoses for a leak. Check the mail hoses going to/from the radiator as well as the heater hoses leading to the firewall. Do you smell the antifreeze odor INSIDE the car? If so, it could be your heater core that's failing.

Check the fuses, check the relays and check the temp switch.
Answer Your anti-freeze is a Dex-cool anti-freeze. It is not compatiable with the green kind. It is a long life coolant which can last up to 100,000 miles.… If you have to top off, do not add water as this coolant comes pre-mixed.
It comes in many colors. Green, red, pink, orange, blue, yellow,purple.

The best advise is to call peugeot car company or go into somewhere like B&Q and ask. If they both don't know, but they should, you could buy any then put it in the cooling ta…nk mixed with water. Hope helped Luv ya. x x x
Yes. Antifreeze is poison to dogs as well as other animals. They drink it because it's sweet.
Turn your car off. I have seen people use water to cool it down as well.
You will notice two lines going to your radiator from the transmission. One is a service line and one is a return line. The radiator has a transmission cooler built into it. I…f you have trans fluid in the radiator chances are the trans cooler is leaking. A little trans fluid in the radiator will not affect engine cooling BUT as soon as the pressure drops in that transmission you may very well have radiator coolant sucked into the tranmission and that will ruin a transmission in a hurry. You need to get this checked out as soon as possible.
