Reasons for broke radiators:

  1. Old
    If your radiator is 4 or 5 years old, you must check them regularly and clean it thoroughly. If it breaks down, you need to buy a new one.
  2. Did not use the right fuel
    It seems unimportant, the wrong fuel affects the radiator! Some people use low octane fuels in the factory, when the higher octane is needed for the machines to work optimally. The low octane fuel is also the reason for knocking.
