What is coolant?
Coolant fluid is also termed antifreeze fluid; it’s a bright yellow or green liquid that mixes with the water in cars, trucks and other vehicles to keep the radiators from freezing or overheating. Made from either ethylene glycol or propylene glycol, antifreeze and coolant change the freezing and boiling points of water.
Coolant raises the boiling point of the liquid in the engine in order to prevent it from overheating.
Common Reasons for Coolant Light Flashing:
- Perforated radiator tank or core. it's easy to spot as there are leakage signs around the radiator which cause the coolant light to flash.
- Faulty radiator hoses. The hoses that connect the radiator to the engine can also get damaged causing leak from the puncture in the hose walls. Usually, hoses become weak and brittle with time that makes them prone to failure, therefore they need to be replaced if they are found defective.
- Faulty water pump. Coolant can also leak from the water-pump housing. If there is a failure in the bearing, the pump seals fail too. This occurs when the pump is operating so the mechanic checks for this with the engine running. In several cases, the pump needs to be replaced.
- Broken radiator cap. It is also possible for the radiator cap to lose its ability to maintain pressure in the system. This will allow the coolant to reach its boiling point at a lower temperatures than intended, and possibly allow steam to escape, which introduces moisture to the system.
