The radiator in your Mitsubishi vehicle helps dispel the heat its engine produces as it runs. Without one, your ride would almost certainly overheat. How one works, and how the cooling process works generally, is simple.
First, antifreeze and water -- a combination that's commonly called coolant, for short -- flow back and forth between an inlet and outlet, through radiator hoses and with help from a water pump. Along the way, a radiator cap pressurizes it, enabling the coolant to absorb as much of that heat as it can. A set of fins on the radiator core then expel the heat, and a cooling fan disperses it. The result: the engine runs cooler, works better, and lasts longer.
No radiator is permanent, though. One goes bad, and it'll end up causing all sorts of problems -- malfunctions with the car heater and air conditioner, engine overheats and failures, and more. Luckily, the signs that let you know that's happening are easy to recognize; look for fin damage and coolant leaks, listen for weird engine noises, see whether your coolant's turning to sludge, and smell for the sweet, syrupy odor of ethylene glycol. See any of these, and you should check your vehicle's temperature gauge; it'll tell you if the engine's running too hot. Then, following an inspection of the cooling system, replace the radiator or any other relevant parts as needed. Avoid the aftermarket, though; choose only genuine OEM.
Why Buy a Mitsubishi Radiator vs. Aftermarket?
The brand you love gives you a fitment guarantee -- that the radiator you buy will come compatible with the car or SUV you drive. Off-brands don't always give you the same assurances.
