Valeo Radiators Cooling and air management for LCV

The key element of cooling loop

The most important component of a coolant module is the cooling radiator. The radiator is the main heat exchanger located at the front of the engine, or if air conditioning is mounted, behind the condenser. It transfers the heat ejected by the engine to the ambient air through the coolant. The radiator is designed to resist vibrations, torsions, bear pressure pulsation from the engine and corrosion from environmental conditions or worn-out coolant.

Thermal sales synergies: Intercoolers, Condensers, Fan Systems

When a car crashes, the radiator is often not the only part that needs replacing. Fortunately, Valeo offers a complete range of complementary products.

An expert on Thermal Systems, Valeo also intercoolers, condensers and fan systems that your workshop may require when replacing a radiator on a crashed car.

Check Valeo’s catalogue for more information on these products!



Note! Low Performance Radiators puts in risk your Engine and cooling components by having:

  • Engine thermal failures: Not enough cooling capacity or mechanical failure for high pressure resistance
  • Thermostat early failure (always activated): mechanical failure in opening-closing metals fatigue
  • Motor fan failure: Longer working fan function at every car stop (e. g. Red street light stop)

As a consequence there may be an impact of higher maintenance costs of low performance radiators.

The radiator shall be changed due to the crash, leakage, perforation. 

Valeo Tip

Proper radiator maintenance is crucial:

The amount of radiator fluid has to be checked and adjusted frequently to prevent the radiator from overheating and cracking.
The radiator cap is also key. It keeps the system clean and maintains correct pressure in the system.

To carry out the filling of the cooling loop effectively, Valeo proposes the FASTFILL® filling tool (Valeo part number: 698798) and Valeo Protectiv™ liquid coolant. Valeo Protectiv™ range protects your engine cooling loop against overheating, freezing and corrosion
