A damaged, leaking or restricted radiator requires immediate attention, because engine overheating can lead to costly damage. One of the most common malfunctions associated with overheating is a blown head gasket. In most circumstances this can be avoided when the radiator and other cooling system components are properly maintainedThe most common radiator problems start with a coolant leak from rust or mineral deposit build-ups in the radiator, hoses, or clamps. Other problems that can trigger overheating include a broken thermostat or faulty water pump.
