Toyota Prius: Hybrids, Wave of the Future?
With recent media campaigns and federal government marketing designed to encourage consumers to consider hybrid vehicles as a possible means of transportation, many consumers have heard of the popular Toyota Prius. Hybrid vehicles are designed to operate on electricity as well as gasoline as alternative power sources, enabling the consumer to save money on gasoline while driving a car that may be better for the environment. But what many consumers may not realize is that the Prius has actually been around on the American market since 2001.
Even though your Toyota Prius is a hybrid, it may suffer from the same engine problems as regular gas-powered vehicles, and that includes radiator problems. An overheating radiator can prove to be the death of your car, so you want to deal with radiator issues as quickly as possible.
If your radiator has a leak, it will not be able to properly circulate coolant through your engine. In addition to leaks, radiators may not work as designed if there is an accumulation of debris in the radiator from contact with salts or other debris. Conditions associated with a malfunctioning water pump or thermostat can also cause the radiator to fail to perform properly. All of these problems could cause your vehicle to overheat, and in many situations, the best solution may be to replace the entire radiator. This may also be the most economical solution, as finding a new radiator can be much easier than trying to find the underlying problem in the existing radiator.
