Truck Coolant System Repair in Corpus Christi, Texas
Damaged Fan Clutch
A damaged fan clutch is perhaps one of the most common causes of an overheating engine. For those unaware, your fan clutch is responsible for activating and de-activating your cooling fan as necessary. If this clutch were to fail, your cooling fan may not behave as it should. For example, a cooling fan that doesn’t engage will almost certainly cause your engine to overheat. You may be okay while moving, but the moment you stop your radiator will receive insufficient airflow, hence the overheating. On the other hand, if the clutch fails to deactivate, your engine may not start easily, and it will likely be frustratingly loud. A constantly running cooling fan may also lead to premature wear on your fan clutch.
Did you know your radiator can get clogged if you don’t change out your coolant on a regular basis? Over time, coolant breaks down and can leave debris behind. This sludge-like debris can clog up crucial heat dispersal lines in your radiator, and cause your engine to heat up. This is one of the most common coolant system issues that truck drivers and fleet managers encounter. Fortunately, we here at TLO Services are experts when it comes to flushing out clogged radiators. Don’t let a clogged radiator slow down your fleet, call TLO today!
Engine Oil Cooler Problems
Although not part of your primary coolant system, your engine oil cooler is designed to remove the heat from your engine in the same way that your radiator disperses heat. Rather than using dedicated fluid, an engine oil cooler uses oil to absorb and disperse radiant heat in the same way that a transmission uses its own fluid to absorb and disperse heat.
