An Intercooler is another name for a heat exchanger; it is used to cool air to the engine that has been compressed by either a super charger or turbo charger.
The intercooler is positioned in the path of incoming air that flows from the charger/turbo to the engine and improves the power and performance of the vehicle by increasing the intake air density.
There are two types of intercooler; air to air or air to liquid.
The heating system is linked directly to the engine cooling system therefore it is important to get your vehicle checked if a problem occurs.
How to notice Intercooler failure:
A. There will be a lack of power when you accelerate
B. The fuel economy of the vehicle will decrease
C. Black smoke will be seen coming from the exhaust system
