Common Coolant System Issues
Malfunctioning Fan Clutch
Most heavy-duty trucks have a fan clutch that controls their cooling fans. Although they’re generally durable components, fan clutches can still malfunction. As a matter of fact, fan clutch malfunction is one of the leading causes of an overheating engine. What are the symptoms of a fan clutch that’s malfunctioning? Common symptoms include a cooling fan that doesn’t engage, disengage, or one that engages erratically and unpredictably. At Superior Towing and Fleet Service, we offer a complete set of fan clutch repairs that are sure to get you back out on the road as soon as possible.
Plugged radiators are often considered to be one of the most common causes of overheating. For perspective, radiators have channels that allow for coolant to flow. These channels also allow for this coolant to be exposed to cool outside air. This process disperses your engine’s radiant heat. However, if old fluid, rust, or outside contaminants clog these lines, an insufficient amount of radiant heat will be dispersed, hence the overheating issue. At Superior Towing and Fleet Service, we’ll flush out your radiator and get you back out on the road.
