In a car, the engine can quickly overheat, especially under heavy load. So that this does not happen there is the water cooler. The coolant provides optimal cooling from the engine of the vehicle. And an inseparable fan is also connected to the system of the water cooler. It also ensures a cool engine. If it overheats, it could quickly damage the engine. And vehicles with improved performance are particularly affected.
Pay attention to the coolant
Depending on the model of the car, but also if you want or already have a higher engine output, you should also improve the water cooler accordingly. This is usually only possible by replacing the water cooler with a new model with better performance. Modifying the old cooler usually does nothing. Only an improved coolant can also provide better cooling performance in the factory water cooler. Here you should take a close look at the models of the tuning water cooler with the different performance characteristics. If you want to replace the water cooler, this usually requires relatively extensive work steps. The first step is to remove the coolant from the old water cooler and the components connected to it. For this purpose you will find a valve under the car, on the underside of the radiator. Important, you should collect the coolant with a bucket and not just let it run off somewhere. If you have drained the coolant, you should take a closer look at it. Here in particular whether there are color changes in the coolant. For example, if it is cloudy or even dirty brown, there may be damage. For example on the cylinder head gasket. Then you have to remove the fan. The removal is relatively insignificant, since you often only have to loosen a few screws.
Exchange of a water cooler
After removing the fan, you can ultimately remove the water cooler. You only have to loosen a few screws and you're done. Very important, you must not damage the special mounting of the water cooler. Depending on the model of the water cooler, it may be the case that the water cooler does not generally fit. Adjustments may be necessary here. And not only with regard to the mounting of the water cooler, but also with regard to the supply lines. These often have to be replaced and if necessary, those with a larger cross section are used for more flow. Before you install the new water cooler, you should clean it. Ideally with a cooling system cleaner. Only then can you install the tuning water cooler. Before you can use the water cooler, of course, you have to fill it with coolant again. And so that you always have an eye on the water temperature, we recommend one in combination with the improved water cooler additional display, Legal registration or a separate TÜV test is not required when replacing the water cooler.
