Here's how it works:

Changing water density drives the coolant circulation. As the water inside the water jacket of the engine heats up, its density drops. The changing water density drives the coolant circulation. The low-density water rises up and out of the engine through the upper coolant hose. Cooler water from the tank, acting as a non-compressible fluid is then pulled into the engine through the lower coolant hose, similar to a gravity-feed siphon.
