Coolant Flush Services
Your engine requires a specific temperature range for optimal performance. Coolant fluid is the working lubricant for your vehicle’s radiator system. Coolant is infused with additives that prevent boiling, freezing and corrosion. Think of your radiator fluid as a warm blanket in the winter and a cool fan in the summer.
Signs You Need a Coolant Flush
If your coolant is low, your cooling system could have a leak. You may be able to see the leak under your vehicle; you may also be able to smell it as well. Have your coolant system inspected as soon as possible if you notice these signs:

Coolant color should never change, but when coolant gets contaminated with debris, or your car is overdue for a coolant flush- the additives in it deplete. When coolant color changes or gets cloudy, bring it to us to see if your vehicle needs a coolant flush.
Low or weak coolant levels indicate the radiator’s job performance is compromised. Your car’s engine may overheat, possibly causing it to seize-up and crack. If this has happened, it’s probably too late for a coolant flush – you may need a whole engine exchange. Don’t wait for this to happen.
What does a Coolant Flush Do?
Coolant breaks down like any other engine fluid. As the additives in your coolant fluid deplete, contaminants and debris can build up on your radiator, affecting its performance. A coolant flush removes the used fluid and the depleted contaminants and debris. With fresh fluid and a clean radiator system, your vehicle’s engine will be able to cool itself more efficiently. It’s essential to have your coolant fluid flushed according to your manufacturers recommendations, or when you experience problem indicators.
When Do Most Vehicles Need A Radiator Flush Service?
The answer can vary depending on your vehicle. Some vehicles have long-life fluids pre-installed on the assembly line and don’t require servicing as often. You can find your vehicle’s coolant information in your owner’s manual, or stop in to have us perform a coolant inspection.
