Your radiator serves as a reservoir for the coolant that is cycled through your engine to help keep it from overheating. The radiator also serves as a way of cooling down the liquid that has moved through the radiator and then allows the heat to dissipate and move into the air outside of the car. The radiator works by moving fluid through thin metal fins that cool the liquid then cycle it back through the engine. When your radiator is cracked, has a hole, or is simply worn out, it can stop cooling your engine effectively. A replacement service generally consists of replacing the radiator itself and any associated hoses as well to make sure that your cooling system is functioning as it should.
If you have a car that has a damaged or worn out radiator you are far more likely to have a car that is going to overheat. You should replace your radiator if there is any damage to it that you are aware of and may need to replace it if you have begun to notice that your car is overheating or that it is getting hotter than it should. If you have a wreck or your car sustains any type of damage you may need to have your radiator replaced. Your mechanic can tell you if you need to replace your radiator or if it is safe to continue to use it.
If your radiator needs to be replaced and you do not replace it your car is likely going to overheat and may become unable to drive. If your car is not kept cool while you are driving your engine will overheat and cause damage to your car. If you need a new radiator and do not have it replaced, you are likely going to have a car that may start and drive for a short distance but then overheat not long after it starts.
