Word forms: (regular plural) cooling systems
( Automotive engineering : Vehicle components , Engine, transmission, and exhaust )
An engine's cooling system
is a set of parts designed to make it less hot
while it is in operation
The cooling system is quite conventional with a block-mounted, belt-driven water pump circulating 25
pints of water.
Engine cooling systems rarely come under greater stress than when sitting still in heavy traffic with no
airflow over the radiator.
You can run a modern engine at idle all day and, as long as the cooling system is in working order, it will not overheat.
