The main components of engine cooling system

Recommended Posts

thermostat

1) Function: Change the circulation route and flow rate of cooling water, automatically adjust the cooling intensity, so that the temperature of cooling water is often maintained at 80 to 90 degrees

2) the installation position is installed in the passage of cooling water circulation, usually installed in the outlet of the cylinder head.

3) form: divided into wax type and foldable type. 

The wax thermostat is equipped with paraffin wax in the space between the rubber tube and the inductor. In order to improve the thermal conductivity, paraffin wax is often mixed with copper or aluminum powder. At normal temperature, paraffin wax is present and the valve is pressed on the valve seat. At this point the valve closes the water path to the radiator, cooling water from the engine cylinder head outlet, through the pump flow back to the cylinder block water jacket for small circulation. When the water temperature of the engine rises, the paraffin wax becomes liquid gradually, and the volume increases accordingly, forcing the rubber tube to shrink, thus producing upward thrust on the upper end of the thrust rod. The upper end of the reversing rod is fixed, so the reversing rod produces a downward reverse thrust on the rubber pipe and the inductor, and the valve opens. When the water temperature of the engine reaches above 80, the valve opens completely, and the cooling water from the outlet of the cylinder head flows to the radiator for large circulation.

FAW Audi 100 cars and CA1091 trucks are all made of wax type thermostat.

The folding thermostat is made of an elastic, folding, airtight cylinder (made of brass) with a volatile ether inside. The main valve and side valve move up and down with the upper end of the expansion cylinder. The vapor pressure of the liquid in the expansion cylinder varies with the ambient temperature, so the height of the cylinder varies with the temperature. When the engine works under normal thermal condition, that is, the water temperature is higher than 80 C, the cooling water should all flow through the radiator, forming a large cycle. At this point the main valve of the thermostat is fully opened, while the side valve closes the bypass hole completely: when the cooling water temperature is lower than 70 degrees Celsius, the steam pressure in the expansion cylinder is very small, so that the cylinder shrinks to the minimum height. The main valve is pressed on the valve seat, that is, the main valve is closed and the side valve is opened. At this time, the water path from the water jacket to the radiator is cut off. The water in the water jacket can only flow out of the by-pass hole into the pump through the by-pass pipe, and then is pressed into the engine water jacket by the pump. At this time, the cooling water does not flow through the radiator, but follows the water jacket and the pump. Ring, so as to prevent the engine from overcooling, and make the engine hot quickly and evenly: when the engine cooling water temperature in the range of 70-80, the main valve and side valve in the semi-open and closed state, at this time part of the water for large circulation, while the other part of the water for small circulation.Thanks for the help of the Chongqing Feilong Jiangli Auto Parts Technical dept.

1) When the cooling water temperature is lower than 76 degrees, the main valve of the thermostat is closed, and the sub-valve opens the cooling water to circulate in a small range between the pump and the water jacket, so that the water temperature rises rapidly. When the water temperature is higher than 86 degrees, the main valve of the thermostat is fully open, the secondary valve is fully closed, and the cooling water flows through the radiator for water circulation to keep the engine at normal working temperature.

      I already have a new one with the correct part number but this rubber is missing and it seems that is fixed on thermostat cannot be removed.
      Thank you

      This car has nothing but issues, now I have water coming in when it rains and my back seat floor is a puddle. Took my spare tire out and have water in there also. Sprayed the whole car down and can see the water coming in when I spray the roof. Looks like it may be coming from the roof rack area. Took the panels off to look and the roof/body seal may be the culprit. Also found a bulletin on this. I ordered some

      link hidden, please login to viewSevere weather, unprecedented rainfall and flooding have taken their toll on car owners. Many in the affected areas have driven through high water that may have damaged their vehicles. Even if your vehicle was not flooded or completely covered in water, the non-profit Car Care Council recommends that you follow these guidelines to check for damage due to water intrusion or contamination: Check interior carpets, upholstery and door and trim panels for dampness. If they are wet, the vehicle needs professional attention. If you simply let the carpet dry, it will quickly grow mildew and give off foul odors. Seat brackets, motors and modules should also be checked for rust and proper operation. Pull the engine oil and transmission fluid dipsticks and differential plug. If the fluid appears milky, diluted, is no longer its original color or is beige in color, then it is likely the pans contain water and the vehicle should be towed to your repair shop. Driving the vehicle with water present may damage the internal parts and require extensive overhaul or repairs. The council reminds motorists that some synthetic differential fluids may appear to be milky, but are not water contaminated. When in doubt, a professional automotive technician should make the evaluation. Check the air filter for water. If it is wet, replace the air filter and change the oil. Check the undercarriage, bumpers, radiator area and frame for mud, grass, dirt, debris and rust. If any of these are present, the vehicle should be washed and cleaned as soon as possible. Have the brake system checked by a professional automotive technician. Check the exterior lights for moisture and water. Replace headlights and bulbs that contain water. Listen for abnormal noises while the engine is running. Make a note of where the noise is coming from and take the vehicle to a professional automotive technician as soon as possible. Have the suspension joints lubricated, if necessary. Many newer vehicles are lubricated at the factory for life; however, these joints should be checked for rust. “It all comes down to how much water the vehicle took in and where it reached,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “By being car care aware and following these simple guidelines, you can help minimize the potential for damage to your vehicle.”

    • OEM vs. Aftermarket Parts for Your Car: How to Choose
      When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.

      Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.

      You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.

      Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.

    • Replacement Intervals For Oil And Air Filters In Today’s Vehicles
      The factory-recommended replacement intervals for filters can vary quite a bit depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as how it is driven. As a rule, older vehicles (those more than 15 to 20 years old) typically have more frequent service intervals than newer vehicles. Why? Because late-model vehicles require less maintenance, thanks to improvements in motor oils, transmission fluids, engine design and filter media.

      Many long-life air and oil filters use synthetic fiber media or a blend of cellulose and synthetic fibers to extend filter life.

      Changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles was standard practice decades ago. But it’s no longer necessary because most multi-viscosity oils today are a synthetic blend or a full synthetic that resist viscosity breakdown and oxidation for a much longer period of time. Late-model fuel-injected engines also run much cleaner than their carbureted ancestors, which reduces oil contamination in the crankcase.
