Knowing Your Coolant System

There are a few important things to consider when dealing with the coolant system on your vehicle. Here at Honda of Santa Fe, we want you to be educated about servicing your car to avoid problems and to keep you in the loop.

Coolant System Basics

Liquid coolant is circulated through your vehicle's engine and radiator by a water pump. Stop your vehicle immediately if the temperature gauge goes to the red. Here are the parts of the coolant system that need to be functioning for your car to run healthy:

  • Radiator
  • Water pump
  • Radiator cap
  • Coolant/radiator hoses
  • Thermostat
It is important to have your car inspected every few months to make sure the coolant is topped off and all parts of the system are functional. We are always happy to help you with any service needs at our dealership in Santa Fe.
