About Radiator

Part of the car's cooling system the 308 Peugeot 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 308 Peugeot radiator which then removes the heat from the liquid into the air being blown through the radiator by the fan.

The 308 Peugeot 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 308 Peugeot 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 308 Peugeot 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 308 Peugeot 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 308 Peugeot radiator to malfunction and require a replacement.

 

Peugeot trivia

  • It was also in 1913 (some might say because of the Indy 500 win) that Peugeot were responsible for the production of half of all of the cars in France. That quickly made them one of the world's biggest names in the automotive industry.
  • It's a dubious claim to fame, but the first recorded stolen car was a Peugeot! The car, belonging to Baron de Zuylen, was nicked by his mechanic in 1896, but the thief was caught, and the car returned to its rightful owner.
  • Peugeot might not be a name in Formula 1 (they did try a few times, but it never quite worked out), but they have been dominant in other races. In particular, four victories in an incredible 24 hours at Le Mans, and six impressive wins in the Dakar rally, to name just a few.
  • Lots of car manufacturers tried building electric vehicles at some point, but Peugeot had more success than others in the 1940s! Fuel restrictions promoted the design, and the car came with four 12-volt batteries that meant a range of 80km on a single charge and a top speed of 32km/h.
  • Peugeot has won the European Car of the Year an incredible five times. The earliest win was in 1969, and the latest was as recently as 2017 (the Peugeot 3008).
