Just like our bodies, the temperature is vitally essential. It de-humidifies the interior of the vehicle, it maintains safe and comforts in driving condition. The temperature under the hood needs to be maintained at the right temperature, and maintaining it may require a quick replacement of a part or could involve a complex repair.The system works by circulating from the radiator through a series of hoses, valves into the core and a fan then blows the air into the compartment. Inspecting, changing and installing a new thermostat should be done every 30,000 miles.

Most of the vehicle users disregard the air conditioning of the vehicle, yet when the system fails it is a major setback. Extreme weather will become a problem when this situation arises, this is the reason why an inspection and service of the car’s heating and air conditioning system should be done.

The thermostat and heater control valve may need a replacement but you can easily do basic maintenance by yourself, it is simple. Before doing the procedure, secure yourself a socket and screwdriver set, safety goggles, tester, clean pan, freshwater flush kit, a garden hose and an antifreeze. The following are the basic steps:

Unscrew the pressure cap on the radiator, be cautious when handling with pressure caps, and always wear safety goggles.

Test the radiator with the antifreeze tester, and evaluate whether the temperature is below the effectiveness point.

Get rid of the sediments, contaminants, and rust that has accumulated. Drain first the antifreeze by opening the petcock valve at the bottom of the radiator and place the clean pan to catch the antifreeze and shut the valve again.

T-fitting installment, insert it into the heater inlet hose and attach a hose to the radiator adapter. Screw the hose into the T-fitting, turn on the hose and the antifreeze will drain into the pan. When the water starts running clean, open the petcock valve and drain the water.

Replace the thermostat and antifreeze. This article was written by the guys at New Orleans Towing
