The engine on the car must produce heat due to burning fuel. On one side this heat is advantageous if it can be controlled properly which is between 70 0 C-90 0 C but on the other hand if this heat is not controlled it will cause serious problems. If this temperature is left it will cause the engine to overheat so that it can cause damage to the engine components. In this case, a solution is needed to keep the engine in the working temperature by completing the engine with a cooling system. Besides that, the developments in radiator design technology that have created radiators now have many variants and shapes, and the most common is the straight fin model with a flat tube and circular cylinder tube. This condition makes researchers interested in which designs are best in releasing heat to cool cooling water. The method used in this study is to use experimental methods that vary the type of radiator and engine speed and give the same treatment to the test object. The results showed that of all variations of speed and rotation that the type of radiator that has good heat release capability is the flat tube type with the effectiveness of 0.605.It can be concluded from the study that flat tube type radiators have better heat release than circular cylinder tube types.
