Cooling Systems 101

What one does. Your vehicle's engine produces intense heat as it runs; the cooling system helps dispel it. Without one, the ride you love driving would almost certainly overheat. If the radiator, for instance, goes bad, it can end up causing car heating and air conditioning malfunctions, not to mention engine failure and other problems.

The signs one's failing. They include fin damage, coolant leaks, sludgy antifreeze, strange engine noises, and a sweet, syrupy odor (of ethylene glycol, in this case). To figure out if the engine's running too hot, check the temperature gauge on your instrumentation. Then, run a cooling system inspection; replace parts as needed.

How much one costs to replace. The average cost of radiator replacement can run from $1000 to $1200, depending on the make and model you drive (and parts alone can make up $800 to $870 of that). For another example, the average cost of replacing a water pump is between $750 and $900 (with parts alone usually running $500 to $570).

Alternative Cooling System Parts vs. OEM and Aftermarket

OEM (original equipment manufacturer) cooling system parts are made by GM. Alternative ones, on the other hand, just like aftermarket ones, are made by reputable third-party manufacturers.

The main difference between alternative and aftermarket parts, though, is OEM affiliation. GM, in this case, has opted to use alternative parts in building its factory cooling systems. Aftermarket cooling system parts, on the other hand, are most often unaffiliated with a manufacturer generally, and they aren't necessarily recommended for use by it.
