Top off coolant Service & Cost

What is topping off the coolant all about?

A car’s coolant is an important part of the vehicle’s operating system. Not only does it absorb the 62-percent of lost energy in a typical gas engine, it also maintains an optimal temperature for fuel efficiency and emissions control. Of course, it also supplies much-needed warmth via the heater and defrosting systems.

It’s worthwhile having a mechanic check the coolant level in your car on a routine basis, simply to prevent any problems that might occur down the road. This is something that should only be done when the engine is cool, as the coolant mix reaches very high temperatures, and is under pressure when hot, so it can spray out of the radiator and cause severe burns. We recommend leaving this to our professional mechanics.

Keep in mind:

  • The installation of an overflow bottle (customary in the automotive industry) should help coolant levels stay normal.
  • Coolant is a mixture of water and anti-freeze in a specified ratio.
  • Many motorists completely ignore their car’s cooling system until there’s a problem.

How it's done:

  • The vehicle engine is allowed to cool till coolant can be checked for safety
  • The radiator cap is removed and fluid level is checked
  • The coolant is filled with 50/50 coolant mix to the fill level
  • The radiator cap is reinstalled
  • The engine is run till fully warm and checked for leaks

Our recommendation:

If you are finding cause to have the radiator coolant level checked frequently, have one of our mechanics check your car for an underlying cooling system issue.

What are the common symptoms indicating you need to top off the coolant?

  • Car overheats
  • Car ejects coolant onto the ground

How important is this service?

Since overheating can damage important parts of the car’s engine, such as the cylinder head, which can warp and require removal and “skimming,” it’s worthwhile having one of our mechanics check your car's fluid levels at every routine maintenance service.

Grzegorz

I did have a 11:00 appt. and then I had to call because no one was at my location being it was 1:30. The office was very helpful in getting me a mechanic right away to me just having to wait another 5 and half almost 6 hours until the job was completely done. The office did give me a discount and that was great but the real question is will I use them again. I think I just might give a try. Thks again for all the help and the extra money you saved me.

Jeff was awesome. He has a full-on rolling repair garage he shows up in, not some car with some tools in the back or a pickup with some tools in the back. The guy is outfitted to handle nearly anything, right there at your house. He has competency, speed and he looks over everything associated with the part or repair he is conducting. If he sees anything that has the potential for failure later down the road, he will let you know. When he does fix something or notices something else, he'll give you the priorities of what is most in need and what can wait. He'll even asses what you might be able to do yourself and provide you ways to save money. Jeff is humorous and just a good 'ol mechanic like they used to be. Understand this though, because of comments like mine and similar experiences others have had with him, you may have to wait three weeks before you can book him...he is that popular. So if you can wait, definitely pick this guy.
