For your Acura engine to run properly, it needs to stay as cool as possible and avoid overheating. An original Acura radiator helps it regulate its temperature best. Thankfully, radiators work straightforwardly. Engine coolant must first absorb heat. It does that by flowing between an inlet and outlet, back and forth via a radiator hose. As the coolant travels, your radiator cap compresses it. This helps the coolant take on as much heat as possible. The core block's brazed fins then release that heat, and a fan disperses it into the air nearby. The result: your engine runs cooler. That helps it work better and last longer. A radiator that's going bad, however, can start to cause problems. Luckily, there are more than a few signs of radiator failure. Fin damage is perhaps the most apparent. Your engine can also start to sound strange, that is, if it doesn't overheat and quit entirely. Your temperature gauge can tell you if your engine's running too hot. You may also smell a sweet smell, like syrup. That's ethylene glycol, and the odor indicates a potential coolant leak. Other symptoms of a bad radiator include sludgy coolant and even HVAC system malfunctions.
