AND LUBRICATING SYSTEMS
Explain the relationship of the cooling system to engine operation. Identify design and
functional features of individual cooling system components. Identify maintenance
procedures applicable to cooling systems. Identify types of lubrication systems and
explain their operational charactetistics and maintenance requirements.
combustion engines are equipped with cooling and lubricating systems that work in
conjunction with each other to promote efficient engine operation and performance. The
cooling and lubricating systems discussed in this chapter, along with their respective
components and maintenance requirements, are representative of the types of systems you
will be expected to maintain.
Because of the
variety of engines used, there are differences in the applications of features of their
cooling and lubricating systems. Keep in mind that maintenance procedures and operational
characteristics vary from engine to engine; therefore, always refer to the manufacturers
service manuals for specific information
