The primary function of the cooling system is to remove the heat created by the engine and its support components. The excess heat energy that is not removed by the cooling system is carried away by exhaust gases and radiation into the atmosphere.

The coolant must be made up of proper proportions of water, antifreeze and supplemental coolant additives (SCA) to properly perform these functions.
