What is Coolant Housing


The Coolant Housing, also called the water outlet, is the connection point between the Engine and the upper Radiator Hose. The material used to make the coolant housing depends on the vehicle's manufacturer, but it is usually made of metal, plastic, or resin. The coolant housing serves an important function in keeping your Engine cool by circulating Coolant through the Radiator.

The coolant housing is responsible for circulating coolant through the Radiator. As the coolant circulates, it absorbs heat from the engine and transfers it to the air passing through the radiator. This process keeps the Engine from overheating and ensures that it functions properly.

When to Replace the Coolant Housing

If your car starts to overheat, one of the first things you should check is the condition of your coolant housing. If the housing is cracked or damaged, it will need to be replaced. In some cases, you may be able to repair a cracked housing with epoxy. However, it is generally best to replace it with a new one to avoid further damage to your engine.
