Why do you put water in Car Radiators?

When Petrol is burnt in a car engine it gives off a lot of heat, which affects the various parts of the engines. Although the heat only rises slowly it could cause the engine to seize up. So these parts have to be cooled by water which circulate around the engine is special channel.
The water first passes through the radiator which is made up of lots of thin pipes, kept cool by the air which blows against them as the vehicle is moving. The cooling action is also helped by a fan turned by the engine. This water is carried around the rest of the engine to cool it down. Heat is transferred to the water which returns to the radiator and is cooled again.

well i think it is more sensitive and more space taking method why we take benefit from the same mechanism i mean that engine exhaust carbon dioxide when it get heat up an other fact carbon dioxide is used in soft drinks to maintained it cool and chilled the same way we can cooled the engine by the same phenomena.

In our area there is a commercial type of radiator fluid available which slightly costly. I use distilled water but I find rust developed in the drained fluid. Should we use any anti rust chmicals in distilled water and what is that?

Thanks for sharing. Radiators mainly is a cooling system so it's nice to know that not only water but even air cooling system is already available. So whether it's air or water, it works as a cooling system.

Well, obviously. I think it's par for course for cars to have a jug of water or two in their trunks. Ultimately, it comes down to the quality of the radiator; if it can handle environmental conditions and stuff, then fine. Don't settle with less.
