Keeping your engine running cool is ideal for it to last much longer. Putting stress on it causes it to overheat. This is where coolant flushes come into play!
Hi, I’m Nancy at Kneble’s Auto Service Center. Do you know the purpose of having a coolant flush? Do you even know what the coolant’s for? The cooling system job in your car is to keep the engine cool to prevent overheating and possible seizing. The purpose of the coolant is to remove that excess heat through the radiator. Now, this coolant or liquid is called antifreeze. Antifreeze has water and additives. Now you don’t want to use just water, because water will freeze in cold temperatures, has a different boiling point, and can make some metals rust or corrode. The additives in the antifreeze can also protect and prevent the corrosion buildup in the heater core of the engine, and the radiator.
Now over time, these additives can deplete or precipitate, and therefore you will not have the protection, and you will have that rust-scale corrosion buildup in the radiator and in your cooling passage, so that’s why it’s extremely important to have a coolant flush and put fresh antifreeze in when you have that coolant flush. Please consult your owner’s manual to determine what the manufacturer of your car recommends. That’s usually done on the miles. Now if you like what I said, press the like button.
