Jeep Liberty Radiator
How to Take Care of Your Jeep Liberty Radiator
The Jeep Liberty radiator keeps your engine cool when you take it out for an adventure. Having a reliable radiator gets even more crucial if you go out for Baja type of drives out in the Arizona desert. So to say that your radiator is just a mundane part that can easily be dismissed, you're wrong. The radiator is an important part that keeps your engine's temperature at its normal working level. Without it, your Jeep would be having problems crossing the desert and working hard to get through tough terrains. And when you take your radiator for granted, it's going to bite back. To avoid radiator mishaps from happening, you should do some maintenance drills. Here are some tips on how to take care of your Jeep Liberty radiator.
- Keep your radiator coolant within the required level.
Your radiator will be functioning properly if you filled it with coolant up to the required level. It is a liquid that circulates through your engine block to be able to keep the temperature in check. Over time, the radiator fluid can drop down from its normal level. You should regularly monitor that level and refill it with the right mixture if necessary. The mixture is usually one part glycol and one part water. Just to be sure, it would be ideal to consult your Jeep Liberty manual.
- Do a visual inspection of the condition of the pipes and core of your Jeep Liberty radiator.
The pipes and core are made of metal. This means they are prone to rust, corrosion, and punctures. Keep these in check to ensure a good flow of coolant in your system. Holes in your radiator will cause leaks and that's going to deplete the coolant in your reservoir. As discussed earlier, a low level of radiator coolant can lead to overheating issues.
- Perform a radiator flush to clean your cooling system.
Over time, sediments might form inside your cooling system. This can impede your radiator from fully performing its duties. To address this issue, you should do a radiator flush. As the name implies, the flushing liquid works by getting rid of the residue that clogs the core and pipes. After a proper flush, expect the radiator to function well again.
