It makes sense to drive an older car for a number of reasons, most notably the savings of owning the car outright rather than making monthly payments and if you're comfortable with it, you don't need as much insurance as required by a loan provider.

A radiator helps to keep the engine of your car cool. It takes the heated coolant that has just passed through your automobile's engine and runs it through fins. These fins help to take the heat and push it outside of your car. The cooled off coolant then passes through the engine again, completing a cycle that is designed to keep as much heat as possible off your engine so it does not overheat.
