Aftermarket & OEM Coolant Water Outlet
When you have a coolant leak that causes your vehicle to overheat, a common cause of this malfunction is the engine's coolant water outlet. Sometimes this issue is very hard to detect depending on its location and how many other components obstruct the ability for you to get a good visual. In some cases you can smell the coolant burning because it has a very distinct scent that most people recognize immediately. If you are required to add coolant on a regular basis then that means it's leaving the coolant system somehow. You should inspect the probable causes using a flashlight and trace the coolant system completely. If a problem in the coolant system is allowed to persist it facilitates the engine to overheat on a regular basis and can lead to more extensive repair requirements. One of the most frequently encountered problems caused by engine overheating is a blown head gasket. This is a hard core repair that normally could have been prevented through early detection. Overheating can also ruin a motor if unattended to so replacing a coolant water outlet can save you a lot of time and money in the long run.
Coolant water outlets play multiple roles within the engine cooling system
and are vital to its proper operation. They direct the coolant from the engine to the radiator by providing a connection for the radiator hose. They also provide a housing that contains the thermostat for the cooling system. On many vehicles the outlet has ports where temperature sensors or switches may be installed to monitor the cooling system and alert safety devices. The coolant water outlet is not just your basic radiator hose connection. It facilitates several other components in the cooling system to function properly.
It is relatively easy to change your coolant water outlet after you remove any obstructions or other components that hinder access to it. Always remember that prior to accomplishing any coolant system repairs you must insure that the engine has had ample time to cool down and there is no pressure existing in the system. After you have verified that system pressure is no longer present and you have clear access to the outlet assembly then you can proceed with the replacement process. If switches or sensors are mounted to the outlet you will have to carefully remove the electrical connections without damaging retaining clips. Then you remove the radiator hose and are ready to remove the coolant water outlet where you will see the thermostat. This is the perfect time to replace it while it is already accessible. After reassembling everything make sure you add antifreeze to the proper level and perform a leak check and then recheck coolant level after the engine cools down.
