Air cooled engine meaning

Air cooled engine definition

An engine which generally has large fins or ribs and is often exposed to the outside air. The heat of the engine is dissipated through the fins of the engine. In contrast, the heat in a water cooled engine is reduced by channels throughout the inside of the engine through which liquid ( antifreeze ) passes. Most older Volkswagens and motorcycles use air cooled engines.
