Cooling System Flush Service

Understanding your vehicle’s cooling system

Your cooling system is what keeps your car from overheating. It works by circulating a mixture of water and coolant through the engine. Over time the coolant mixture becomes contaminated with scale and rust, which can clog and damage the cooling system components. A cooling system flush essentially flushes out the entire system of contaminants and replaces the coolant mixture with fresh coolant and water.

How it's done:

  • Install flush chemical to radiator
  • Bring the car to operating temperature
  • Drain the old coolant
  • Close valve and refill with water
  • Repeat the process
  • Fill radiator with a 50/50 mixture of coolant and water
  • Check for leaks and fan operation

Keep in mind:

Your mechanic will drain the fluid, clean the system with coolant cleaner, and use water to remove the remaining coolant. After cleaning the system, the mechanic will fill it up with new coolant. This process is effective and an approved industry method of flushing your vehicle’s cooling system.

Our recommendation:

  • Some vehicles are equipped with a low coolant sensing system. Should this light come on, have your vehicle inspected for leaks or other possible causes for the low coolant level.
  • Follow the service maintenance schedule provided by the manufacturer to get the coolant replaced at regular intervals. In general, it is a good practice to change the coolant every 40,000-50,000 miles.

Signs that your vehicle needs a coolant system flush

Keeping your vehicle running smoothly requires attention to all of its systems, including the cooling system. An essential part of maintaining this system is knowing when to perform a coolant flush. Here are some telltale signs that your car might be due for this critical service:

  • Visible debris or discoloration in the coolant: If you notice that the coolant in your vehicle has visible particles floating in it, or if the color looks off, it's a clear indicator that your cooling system could be contaminated. A healthy coolant should be free of debris and exhibit a bright, consistent color.
  • Overheating engine or fluctuating temperature gauges: One of the most common symptoms of a cooling system in need of a flush is an engine that frequently overheats. Similarly, if the temperature gauge on your dashboard is displaying erratic readings, it's a likely sign that the coolant is not flowing properly due to blockages or contamination.
  • Strange noises or indicator lights from the cooling system: Unusual sounds, such as gurgling or boiling, can hint at a coolant problem. Additionally, if your vehicle's dashboard lights include any indicator that suggests a cooling system issue, it's critical to have your coolant checked out promptly.

Ignoring these warning signs can lead to more significant issues, such as engine damage. If you detect any of these symptoms, schedule a coolant system flush with one of our mobile mechanics to ensure your vehicle remains in optimal condition

Importance of coolant system maintenance

Maintaining your vehicle's coolant system is crucial for ensuring its performance and longevity. A well-maintained coolant system prevents common engine problems and keeps your car running smoothly under a range of operating conditions.

  • Prevention of engine overheating: One of the primary functions of the coolant system is to absorb and dissipate heat from the engine. Over time, the coolant can degrade, lose its efficacy, and lead to engine overheating. Regular coolant system maintenance, including flushes, ensures that heat is efficiently transferred away from the engine, preventing severe damage and engine failure.
  • Protection against corrosion and deposit buildup: Another pivotal aspect of coolant system maintenance is the role it plays in combating corrosion and deposit buildup within the engine and radiator. Coolants typically contain additives that slow down rust and prevent scaling, but these additives can become depleted. Rolling out a coolant system flush clears out old fluid and any accumulated deposits, while fresh coolant replenishes these protective additives.

Implementing a disciplined schedule for coolant system maintenance is vital. Not only does it extend the life of your vehicle, but it also upholds its performance and ensures a safer driving experience. Remember that preventing engine problems before they occur is more cost-effective than dealing with a major repair down the road.
