Coolant flushes provide many benefits to your cooling system. It is important to maintain your cooling system, just like every other part of your automobile, which is why we recommend a coolant flush once a year to keep your cooling system working effectively.
Your engine temperature is maintained by the flow of anti-freeze, more commonly referred to as coolant. A coolant flush pushes anti-freeze through your cooling system in order to do a complete cleanse by clearing out all of the old anti-freeze and any contaminants that have built up. When you get a coolant flush, all of the old anti-freeze is evacuated from your system, ensuring that when we put new anti-freeze in, it won’t mix with the old. Lastly, conditioners are added in order to prevent rust and scale deposits, resulting in new longer-lasting anti-freeze.
Every make and model is different, and therefore is on a varied maintenance schedule. Check your owner’s manual to see when it’s time for your vehicle to receive a coolant flush. Usually this flush needs to be performed once a year. If it has been over a year since your vehicle has received a coolant flush, call your local Christian Brothers Automotive today.
