Lesson 5/Learning Event 2
FIGURE 70. COOLANT FLOW THROUGH RADIATOR.
The radiator is usually mounted in the front of the engine compartment so cool air can pass freely through the
core. The outlet on the bottom radiator tank is connected to the coolant pump inlet. The top tank inlet of the
radiator is then connected to the outlet at the top of the engine. Rubber hoses and hose clamps are used to
make these connections to prevent engine vibrations from being transferred to the radiator.
