A Coolant Flush is an important part of preventive maintenance. You may be under the impression occasionally adding antifreeze and water to your radiator to replace evaporated fluid is all the maintenance your car's cooling system needs. This important service is called a coolant flush.
Vehicle engines generate a significant amount of heat and must be equipped with a cooling system that regulates the engine temperature. It is important that the cooling system is designed so that the engine runs at an optimal temperature that is neither too hot or too cool.
Antifreeze has the capability to raise the boiling point of the engine coolant in order to prevent it from overheating. Not to mention it can also protect your engine from corrosion, aid heat transfer and prevent scales from building up.
Most manufacturers recommend that the coolant be changed every 3 years or 80,000 kilometers. Your technicians at Take 5 Oil Change at 102 King St. W. can review your manufacturers recommendation for your specific vehicle.
