It is usually located in the front of the vehicle under the \015\012hood. The engine creates heat from the internal combustion that continuously occurs \015\012inside the engine, this heat is transferred to the engine coolant, then circulated \015\012through the thermostat then to the radiator. Inside the radiator there are many \015\012small tubes with cooling fins attached that allows the coolant to be cooled and \015\012then returned to the engine in a continuous cycle. Radiators are mostly made of \015\0122 plastic tanks and an aluminum core.
