About Radiators

Part of the car's cooling system the Citroen radiator plays an important role in enabling the car engine to function as efficiently as possible and to perform at its best.

The main function of the cooling system is to keep the engine cool and stop it from overheating. The cooling system also enables the engine to reach the required heat quickly and keeps the engine maintained at this constant heat. This means the engine can reach optimum performance as quickly as possible; a cold car engine does not run properly and can cause damage to the engine. The cooling system does its job by allowing liquid coolant to move through the engine. The liquid absorbs the heat from the engine which in turn cools the engine down. When the liquid leaves the engine it flows into the Citroen radiator which then removes the heat from the liquid into the air being blown through the radiator by the fan.

The Citroen radiator is usually made of aluminium and consists of a series of internal tubes, which allow the liquid coolant to flow through the radiator. The radiator has little fins on the end, which act as heat conductors, removing the heat from the liquid in the tubes and transferring it to the air that is being pumped through the radiator. The Citroen radiator has a pressure valve and two tanks on either side which store any excess liquid coolant before it passes through the outlet hose and returns to the pump.

There are many problems that can arise with your car's cooling system. Radiator specific faults can occur, such as a radiator leak or leaky fittings. If the Citroen radiator has a leak you may notice bubbles escaping or steam billowing out of the radiator. If you notice that your engine is hotter than usual this could indicate damage to the Citroen radiator, which, over a long period of use, will eventually deteriorate and need replacing. Due to prolonged use, old radiators can experience a variety of problems. Rust; a failed thermostat; blockages and build up causing a restriction to the coolant flow; a faulty water pump; loose solders; wear and tear on the seams and cracked hoses can all cause the Citroen radiator to malfunction and require a replacement.

 

Citroen trivia

  • In 1968, Citroën bought control of the Italian car firm Maserati. That purchase led to the design of the Citroën GT, which came with hydro-pneumatic suspension and a V6 engine. It did well in terms of sales, but production of the last version, the DS23 Pallas Electronique, was stopped in 1975 after the '73 oil crisis.
  • In 2019, the Citroën DS was voted in the UK as the 'coolest car ever', with writers and marketers calling it the Brigitte Bardot of cars. In second place was the E-Type Jag…
  • At a recent count, Citroën cars have appeared in just under 1,800 films, with the most famous being the Citroën used in the James Bond film, For Your Eyes Only. That film even had a tie-in car, a special edition Citroën that was emblazoned with the 007 logo and optional bullet hole stickers for the windows.
  • The Citroën 2CV Safari had some crazy extra features. It was a four-wheel-drive vehicle, and Citroën decided that four-wheel drive meant that it would be better to have two engines...one at the front and one at the back. The fuel cap sticks out of the driver's door, and the tank was right under the driver's seat!
  • French president Charles de Gaulle's life was saved by Citroën not once, but twice. In 1961 a Citroën DS managed to stay intact despite there being a bomb made of plastic explosive, dynamite, oil, and nails. It even managed to drive away from the scene. In 1962, de Gaulle was attacked again, this time with machine guns, but the Citroën again managed to get away from the would-be assassins.
