What takes place within
the Cylinders of every Internal Combustion Engine (Gasoline or Diesel)
is a 'Controlled Explosion' of the fuel which is powering the Engine.
The energy that is created pushes the Pistons downwards which is then
turned into a Rotational movement, and which movement is then further
transferred to its final form where it turns the wheels of the vehicle.
The significant and undesirable by-product of the Combustion Process is
a creation of a tremendous
amount of heat. This heat energy must be dissipated in the most
efficient way... as any excessive temperature which is beyond the
capacity of the materials used for the construction of an engine would
eventually cause the destruction of those components and the engine itself.
Thus there is a need for
a reliable Cooling System as close as possible to the Heat Source
- the Engine Cylinder Block and the Engine Head!
And that is exactly what gets damaged when a failure of the Cooling
And therefore, that is exactly in where our HEAL-A-SEALTM Repair
Kit also does its
'work' - in the Engine's Cooling System... and at the locations where the heat caused
damage has already occurred!
And typically, that damage to the Engine starts with the Blown Head Gaskets, Cracked - or Warped - Cylinder Heads,
and finally the Cracked Cylinder
The Illustrations and Verbal Descriptions below provide an insight into
the fundamentals of the Engine Cooling Systems,
the relevant Engine components, and how our HEAL-A-SEALTM Repair
Kit 'finds its way', through the passages of the Engine Cooling
System, precisely to those "locations where the heat caused
damage has already occurred"!
DIAGRAM OF A TYPICAL COOLING SYSTEM AND THE COOLANT PATH
The above COOLING SYSTEM DIAGRAM depicts
a typical COOLING SYSTEM where the COOLANT is initially supplied and/or
replenished from the COOLANT RESERVOIR, (GREEN)
and then circulates through the RADIATOR into the ENGINE, from where
the heated Coolant (RED) from the top part of
through the THERMOSTAT HOUSING, UPPER RADIATOR HOSE, and enters the top
part of the RADIATOR
being cooled down (YELLOW), by its passage
through the RADIATOR
CORE, the COOLANT is then returned via
into the WATER PUMP, which then pumps it into the passages surrounding
the COMBUSTION CHAMBER, and throughout the hot sections of the ENGINE - the CYLINDER BLOCK and the CYLINDER
CROSS-SECTION AND THE RELATIVE POSITION OF HEAD GASKETS
The above ENGINE
CROSS-SECTION (typical 'V-8' ENGINE) shows all main ENGINE components
and indicates the exact location of the most HEAT DAMAGE PRONE PARTS -
THE HEAD GASKETS. They are
'represented' in the above ENGINE CROSS-SECTION by the RED LINES sandwiched between the
hottest parts of the Engine, the CYLINDER BLOCK and CYLINDER
HEADS ... both of which are also
