Does Your Vehicle Need a Fan Shroud?

When you think about the parts of your cooling system, the first thing you may contemplate may be the radiator itself. Since this component is central to cooling system operation, this makes sense. That said, another passive component called a fan shroud has a big effect on how well your radiator fan works.

The radiator shroud is a piece of metal or plastic that is designed to fit snugly around your radiator. The shroud has a space in the middle for the fan blades. From this position, the radiator shroud can channel air flow through the fan blades and prevent air from escaping to the sides of the radiator. This action can help prevent your engine from overheating when your vehicle must sit in place for extended periods of time.

Here at our Ford service facility in the Nederland, TX area, we have cooling system experts who can help you tune your fan shroud. For a quick, no-obligation conversation about your engine cooling system needs, come by Philpott Ford today.
