Protecting your automobile from overheating requires regular maintenance on your cooling system. Taking proper care of your cooling systems improves the longevity of your car, reducing the likelihood of roadside emergencies. The most common roadside emergencies occur from overheated engines, which begin with a problem with your coolant. The coolant runs through the engine and radiator, keeping the car cool, especially in the summer; the anti freeze keeps the engine cool by absorbing and transferring heat.
Since cooling problems are likely to affect the performance of your engine, our team of engine specialists recommend that you include a cooling system service to your regular maintenance schedule. The cooling system flush in Amarillo takes care of your engine by removing contaminants and corrosives that may cause cooling and operational issues. Letting a contaminated coolant stay in your car for too long can cause leaks and system failures, leading to untimely and expensive repairs on your automobile.
Understanding a Coolant Flush.
A coolant flush is also known as a radiator flush or cooling system services. A coolant flush in Amarillo involves introducing a cleaner to the car’s cooling system to eliminate any rust, sediments or residues in the system, including remnants of the old coolant. The service is highly effective in ensuring the longevity of your heater cores, water pumps, gaskets, radiators, hoses and coolant pipes. Instead of just introducing a new coolant into the system, the flushing process is effective in ensuring the new coolant does not come into contact with any contaminants that may be lying in the system.
How Often should you flush your cooling system?
Often, we recommend that you follow your car’s manual when scheduling a cooling system service. If you do not have access to the manual, you should flush the coolant every 3 years or after 30,000 miles; whichever comes first. However, the frequency of your radiator flushes will depend on the conditions under which you drive your car. Our technicians can test your coolant for dirt and corrosives and recommend a cooling system service.
Instead of waiting for an indication from your temperature gauge, make sure you get your coolant tested for contaminants on a regular basis. If you drive on dusty roads or areas where debris are likely to fly into your engine, get your coolant tested regularly. The coolant flush offers the best solution to cooling problems.
