Owning a Rolls Royce is kind of a big deal. Nothing says elegance, style, and efficiency in automobiles like the Rolls Royce brand. But you can be certain that you will not feel too good about it if there is a malfunctioning system in your vehicle. One such system that could cause a great deal of distress to this car’s engine is the Rolls Royce engine cooling system.
What is the Purpose of the Rolls Royce Engine Cooling System?
Your Rolls Royce engine produces a lot of heat as a by-product of the combustion process, it is the responsibility of the cooling system to maintain the temperature in the engine compartment within the appropriate operating temperature. The cooling system is made up of a number of components including the radiator, the thermostat, the water pump and the water hoses. An integral part of the cooling system is the coolant, a tart smelling colored fluid circulated around the engine for the sole purpose of keeping the temperature within an optimal range when the engine is running. If your cooling system malfunctions, then a malfunctioning engine cannot be too far away.
What are the Signs of a Faulty Rolls Royce Engine Cooling System?
Overheating. This is the most apparent and common sign of a failing Rolls Royce cooling system. If you notice steam coming from the engine compartment while you’re on the road, your engine is overheating, meaning the radiator or another component isn’t doing its job. An illuminated temperature gauge and check engine light are also signs of a malfunctioning cooling system and could have adverse effects on the vehicle’s engine. A coolant leak is also another obvious sign if you notice a pool of greenish or reddish colored fluid underneath your engine ( front and center), the gaskets, and seals within the water pump meant to hold the coolant are probably damaged causing the coolant to leak out. A faulty water pump may also give of whining sounds when the engine is running, often as a result of a loose belt or pulley. If you observe any of these signs while on the road, it is not recommended that you keep driving. Pull over and turn off your engine before you do anything else.

How Do We Fix a Faulty Cooling System?
When you bring your car in suspecting a failure in the cooling system, we will, first of all, inspect the cooling system components to pinpoint the failing component which would help us in the repair services. We will visually inspect the dash panel for illuminated warning lights, listen for unusual noises from the engine compartment when the engine is running, check the air temperature from the heater in the engine, inspect the water pump pulley and coolant reservoir for signs of damages, corrosion, and leakages. We will also inspect the coolant itself, low fluid levels or contaminated coolant pose a problem to the cooling system on its own.
The repairs and servicing we will perform are based on the results of the visual inspection and diagnostics. We will repair or replace the damaged components as warranted. If required, our servicing may involve draining and topping off coolant levels as well. The cooling system of your Rolls Royce demands regular maintenance and if you ignore it, the consequences of such negligence could be detrimental to your engine and wallet.
