Poor radiator maintenance is the leading cause of radiator failure. If your
Isuzu radiator isn't working properly, your vehicle will overheat and break down.
There are many common problems that arise from neglecting to periodically inspect
and maintenance your radiator. Some of these problems include fan damage, electrolysis,
fin deterioration, bond failure, and leaky fittings. Fan damage is the result
of an ill-fitted fan that's been rubbed against or a radiator that's been hit
while driving over a bump. It's important to visually inspect your radiator cores
to access fan damage. Using mineral-rich or dirty water in your cooling system
will result in a sediment build-up commonly referred to as electrolysis. If you
catch this problem early on, you may be able to fix it yourself by using a radiator
cleaner or a simply rod and brush. Because your radiator is constantly exposed
to dirt, water, and other types of debris, fin deterioration and bond failure
are almost inevitable. The only way to prevent problems that arise from fin deterioration
and bond failure is to regularly clean and inspect the cooling fins. Leaky fittings
are associated with regular wear and tear and should be replaced immediately to
prevent further damage.
