If you've ever been stuck in the middle of the highway with an overheated engine and a lifeless vehicle, then you probably wouldn't think twice about getting a replacement for your damaged Jeep Wrangler radiator. Daily driving, combustion explosions, and all the other operations happening inside your Jeep can make the engine's temperature spike up to a sky-high level. One of the components you need to keep this heat at bay is the radiator. It's the boss of the entire cooling system, and when it breaks down, the entire vehicle would eventually be paralyzed. Save yourself from the stress of being stranded on the road by getting a durable Jeep Wrangler radiator replacement.
Is the frequent use of radiator sealant harmful to a Jeep Wrangler radiator?
Radiator sealants are extremely useful when it comes to quick DIY fixes like covering small holes and leaks, but it can also cause problems in the radiator assembly if used frequently. There are instances when the radiator sealant coats the thermostat coil, preventing the device from properly monitoring the coolant temperature. This can ultimately lead to overheating and radiator failure. The radiator sealant may also clog the lower parts of the radiator and affect the entire assembly’s cooling performance. In some cases, using the radiator sealant may also hamper the heater core’s operation. It is best to take the Jeep Wrangler radiator to a mechanic to refrain from using radiator sealants on every hole or leak. It is actually more cost-efficient in the long run to have the radiator fixed professionally than deal with the problems associated with radiator sealants.
The top portion of the Jeep Wrangler radiator is colder than the bottom. Is it time to bleed the radiator?
Answer: Yes. A cold radiator top means there's a significant amount of trapped air inside, so bleeding should be done right away. The Jeep Wrangler's radiator may also function less effectively if the coolant is mixed with trapped air. A special radiator key can be used to bleed the radiator and bring it back to its proper working condition. Radiator bleeding should be done approximately every three months to purge the component of excess air and dirty water. Those living in colder areas should bleed the radiator once or twice each month, as the climate can cause air to enter the radiator more frequently.
What can be used to restore the shine on a nickel-plated Jeep Wrangler radiator?
A museum-grade silver and gold polish may be used to polish the yellowed nickel-plated surface of a Jeep Wrangler radiator. Chemicals, dirt, and grime may cause the nickel to erode over time and have an unsightly yellowish color. Buffing and polishing the nickel plates regularly will help maintain the radiator’s condition for a long time.
