THERMAL SYSTEM

Your car’s thermal system has the job of regulating the engine temperature. 

A working engine can reach temperatures between 1700°C and 2500°C. One part of this heat is transferred to the cylinder walls, the pistons, the engine head and the valves, which could damage them. Thermal energy is dissipated thanks to the coolant in opportune spaces in the engine. This liquid reduces the engine heat and puts it out in the air thanks to the radiator.

RADIATEUR

RADIATOR
The real face of the cooling circuit

EVEN COOLING ATTITUDES IS A GIFT

Optimized control of temperature when the engine is running
Capability of using the speed of moving forward

The radiator, thanks to its cooling ability, guarantees your engine a long life and better energy efficiency. It is located in the front part of your car, corresponding to the air vents, to take advantage of the dynamic effect given by the speed of moving forward. They consist of two reservoirs connected by a series of pipes, in which coolant runs.

IT GIVES YOU

  • Optimum engine operation
  • Reduction of damage risks
  • Better engine energy efficiency

ENGINE FAN
The radiator’s inseparable companion

THE AIR YOUR ENGINE BREATHES IS IMPORTANT

Capacity to increase air flow

The fan increases the air flow going through the radiator at low speeds or when parked. It is activated only when the engine cooling circuit temperature reaches standard values. With an accurate definition of fluid dynamics, our original fans guarantee a strong noise reduction and a noticeable increase in efficiency.

IT GIVES YOU

  • Notable noise control
  • Increases radiator efficiency

HEATER
With this you can enjoy your passenger compartment heat

WARMTH WHEN TRAVELLING IS PRICELESS

Capable of using the coolant heat

The heating radiator or heater is part of the climate control system, but it is powered by the cooling system. It uses the heat contained in the coolant at high temperatures and provides heat to your car’s passenger compartment.
The heater is in both air conditioned cars and heated ones.

IT TREATS YOU

  • Warm, comfortable trips

WATER PUMP
Circulation is guaranteed thanks to this

THE RIGHT THRUST AT THE RIGHT MOMENT

Capable of providing pressure and flow rate to the coolant
High resistance to high temperatures
Performing materials

It guarantees liquid circulation, providing the pressure and flow to the coolant that are needed for all operating conditions. To activate it correctly, the thermostat intervenes, opening the flow towards the radiator only at a precise temperature. Our original water pumps are made with performing materials to offer greater duration over time and resistance to ever higher temperatures.

IT GIVES YOU

  • Maximum duration over time
  • Proper engine cooling

COOLANT
The life blood of the cooling circuit

BLUE BLOOD RUNS IN THESE VEINS!

High compatibility with different types of metal
Capacity to correctly handle heat exchanges

A coolant has to have many requisites: over time maintaining the protective characteristics of the inhibitor agents, the maximum protection against cavitation and electro-erosion phenomena, the formation of calcium and boiling in hot periods, in motorway lines, in city driving.

To maintain the cooling system correctly for your car, use Paraflu radiator protectors distributed by Petronas Lubricants and our original parts.IT GIVES YOU

  • Preventing corrosive effects
  • Antifreeze action
  • Antiboiling action

DID YOU KNOW THAT…?

There’s antifreeze and antifreeze

Tous les antigels ne se ressemblent pas

It’s important it’s called Paraflu

Choosing an unsuitable liquid for your car can have negative consequences for your car’s cooling circuit to operate properly, impacting the engine performance. In the maintenance handbook you’ll find the coolant type suitable for your model. However, we advise the effectiveness and quality of the Paraflu range. Remember to mix the product with 50% water: this way you get a freeze point at -50°C.

The water pump travels in a team

La pompe à eau travaille en équipe

One for all and all for one

The cooling pump works in synchrony with the timing components because it is driven by the toothed belt. The moving parts undergo the same effort and wear over time. This is why during maintenance, we advise you to replace the timing belt and all related components at the same time, such as turnbuckle bearings, retraction rollers and water pump.

When the temperature rises, best stop

Lorsque la température monte, mieux vaut s’arrêter

A hot environment is not good for the engine’s health

When you see a red warning light on the dashboard signaling high temperature, call the Road Assistance: the situation could become dangerous. It is important to periodically check the cooling system at a Fiat Dealer Network, verifying the operation of the radiator and the other components. Topping up the liquid level is included in every coupon. If needed, you can top up the coolant by following the instructions in the handbook.

Coolants are not what they seem

Attention aux les liquides de refroidissement

Trusting is good, not trusting is better

There are various liquid or powder form systems on the market that promise to block small leaks. These products have no proven technical validity and they can instead cause serious problems to the engine and the water pump. If you should be aware of a loss of radiator coolant, see a Fiat Dealership and replace it with an original one.
