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.
Properly maintaining the coolant system will remove rust and scale deposits in the coolant system. It will lubricate the water pump, remove contaminants and protect against rust and foam.
Most manufacturers recommend that the coolant be changed every 3 years or 80,000 kilometers. Your technicians at Take 5 Oil Change at 699 Ontario St. can review your manufacturers recommendation for your specific vehicle.
