The radiator is an important part of an engines cooling system. The radiator is a heat exchanger used to transfer thermal energy from one medium to another. Vehicle radiators are constructed of a pair of metal or plastic header tanks, linked by a core with many narrow passageways, giving a high surface area relative to volume. This core is usually made of stacked layers of metal sheet, pressed to form channels and soldered or brazed together. Modern radiators have aluminium cores, and often save money and weight by using plastic headers with gaskets.

Your car engine creates a lot of heat when working, the cooling system pumps coolant through the engine to prevent overheating. The radiator transfers the heat from the fluid inside to the air outside, thereby cooling the fluid, which in turn cools the engine. Radiators are also often used to cool automatic transmission fluids, air conditioner refrigerant, intake air, and sometimes to cool motor oil or power steering fluid. Radiators are typically mounted in a position where they receive airflow from the forward movement of the vehicle, such as behind a front grill.  If your radiator is malfunctioning this can cause the engine to overheat which can cause major damage to your car.
