how can you tell if you need a radiator in a 99 cadillac northstar engine
A white surface is a good radiator of heat.
If it's repairable, a reputable radiator shop will be a good resource. They can tell you if the radiator can be repaired or if it must be replaced.
A radiator is defective if fluids are leaking out of the radiator or there is a leak of steam. Or, if thecore is blocked, the radiator will remain cold or just slightly warm in places.
First replace your thermostat. To check circulation, fill the radiator and start the car with the radiator cap off. When the thermostat opens, you will be able to see water should circulate in the radiator. If the car is still getting hot, pull the radiator and take it to a shop. The will be able to tell you if there is good circulation, and if it will hold pressure. There should be no charge for testing.
An object that is a good radiator of electromagnetic waves is also a good source of energy (heat,light ...)
The same surface as is a good absorber is also a good radiator: a black surface that is not reflective.This is where the term "black body" comes from.
Usually a radiator is made of metal. Plastic can not take the pressure. A hole can be fixed by welding. A radiator shop can tell you for sure.
Replace the radiator with a new or good used one.
What I do is put half antifreeze and half water in to the radiator and keep putting more radiator fluid tell you see it in the neck of the radiator and put some radiator fluid in the coolant reservoir tank too.
Call Around; Find A Radiator Shop or A Mechanic That Can Pressure Test Your Radiator. This Should Help
You need to get a tester at any auto supply store for 3-5 dollars. Dip in rad and it will tell you if fluid is good . If fluid is good, then there's no need to change it.
Usually the rubber will be hard and cracking
Don't know tell me
You will see coolant pouring from it and your car will overheat
some cooling systems, you can check by removing the radiator cap when the water is cool. Then crank the vehicle and let it run until it reaches operating temp. If the water reaches or exceeds operating temp with no flow seen inside of the radiator, it could possible mean that your cooling system is clogged. Also a good indication is if there is rust deposits around the filler neck on the radiator.
on the under side of the hood or along the top of the radiator it should tell you or you can call your local parts store and thay can tell you. good luck
Well, u would no that it's not if it starts burning and exploding! you would no if it isn't if it didn't burn up and explode! Hope I helped! :)
I check radiator fan, and relays and they are good, what can be a problem when my car reaches temperature to open termostat radiator fan does not work
A dark, matt surface is a better radiator of heat than a shiny, flat surface.
The radiator will leak, Its function is to hold water in a way as to cool it for the engine. So if it leaks, its busted.
Radiator of electromagnetic energy
If you want a good radiator get an all aluminum radiator as they cool a lot better, call summit racing as they have them.
coolant in engine enters radiator at the bottom, goes up thru radiator and exits radiator at top. i would think your radiator is clogged up try a good,(expensive) radiator flush to see it that fixes proble,
easiest way to tell if water pump is working is to run engine until at running temp. then carefully remove radiator cap. with someone slightly reving engine, look into radiator. if the pump and thermostat are working correctly, you will see the coolant moving(circulating) in the radiator
