Research on Radiator for Chevrolet El Camino

Chevrolet El Camino Radiator

When your radiator is on the fritz temperatures under the hood can quickly skyrocket. In addition to causing damage to the cooling system's thermostat, hoses, water pump and radiator itself, excessive pressure and heat can harm surrounding engine block components.

At PartsGeek.com you will find top-quality Chevrolet El Camino radiator replacements from Action Crash, APDI, Spectra Premium, Metrix and Mishimoto.

What is the radiator?

In addition to a thermostat, fluid pump and electric-powered fan, the radiator is part of your car's cooling system. This system is responsible for maintaining safe operating temperatures within the engine block.

The pump forces coolant to constantly circulate, moving the super-heated liquid away from the engine and cylinder heads toward the radiator. The radiator itself has a simple but effective design. Two header tanks are situated at either side of a central welded sheet metal core threaded with a dense network of small channels. When hot coolant reaches the radiator, it circulates through this honeycomb structure, quickly dissipating (i.e. "radiating") the heat energy produced by the engine. The radiator fan helps to speed up the cooling process.

How much is a replacement Chevrolet El Camino radiator?

The price of a new Chevrolet El Camino radiator will depend on the manufacturer of the part, the specific make year of your vehicle. Most of the replacement radiators available on PartsGeek.com cost somewhere between about $80 and $200.

Why is the radiator important?

Ideally, operating engine temperatures should be within the range of 180 and 210 degrees Fahrenheit. Making sure that you have a working radiator onboard is crucial for maintaining safe temperatures. Driving without an operating cooling system can quickly lead to devastatingly high heats within the engine block that can warp or destroy component parts.

 What are symptoms of a failing radiator?

In most cases radiator failure is caused by some form of leak in the system. You should keep an eye out for coolant dripping from underneath the car, frequent overheating, consistently low coolant levels and the development of sludge within the radiator fluid.
