Cooling System Operation

The purpose of the cooling system is to absorb excess heat generated by the engine and cool the automatic transmission fluid. Some models will also include an engine oil cooler. The internal combustion of the air and fuel mix can easily exceed 2000°F/1093°C. During this process, 33% of the heat is used to generate the mechanical energy required to run the engine. Another 33% is lost heat going out the exhaust system and the last portion is the heat absorbed by the surrounding steel and aluminum of the engine. That last 33% absorbed by the engine is approximately 700°F/371°C and this level of temperature can seriously damage the engine if not taken care of.
Remember that an engine that runs too cold is as bad as an overheating engine. An overheating engine will cause the temperatures around the combustion chamber (cylinder heads) to be high enough to destroy cylinder heads and gasket. A cold running engine (caused by a wrong or stuck open thermostat) will prevent the removal of condensation forming in the engine that can oxidize and create sludge buildup in the oil pan.
Engine oil is also affected by the cooling system. To properly lubricate the internal moving parts, the oil needs to reach an approximative temperature of 190°F/88°C, otherwise increased engine wear will occur. Maintaining a cooling system in perfect order will procure the heat transfer necessary to obtain maximum protection and performance.
