Simple Tech: Cooling systems for engines explained

Internal combustion engines use fuel to generate heat and it is the heat that is actually converted to useful work, in our case, forward motion. However, the average engine is only able to use about 30 per cent of the heat. The rest is waste and this waste accumulates by heating up everything it possible can. Allow this wasted heat to accumulate unchecked and you will end up with damage. The heat can deform and melt parts and eventually lead to catastrophic engine seizure.

During the power stroke, the temperature can reach as high as 2500...
