Coolant Fluid Exchange Service
Automotive Cooling 101
Internal combustion engines require a support system to offset the heat generated by thousands of small explosions occurring inside the combustion chamber every minute. The Cooling System includes several vital components all working together for the common goal of absorbing engine heat and dissipating the heat away from the engine. To get this done, the Cooling System has several components pumping and guiding Coolant Fluid through various engine passages absorbing heat and taking the heat away from the engine where it exits from the radiator. Automotive Cooling requires several vital parts that need maintenance and inspection routinely including the water pump, Coolant Fluid, hoses, radiator, thermostat, fan, and fluid reservoir.
The water pump circulates the Coolant Fluid countless cycles absorbing and dissipating heat away from the engine. Facing intense temperatures, variable pressure, and materials prone to wear and tear, Coolant Fluid will eventually become contaminated while breaking down. Broken down contaminated Coolant Fluid won’t be able to absorb heat properly, and this situation leaves your engine at significant risk of overheating. Given the limitations of Coolant Fluid and its value towards keeping the engine running cool, it is always the best idea to schedule a Coolant Fluid Exchange at the recommended maintenance interval. Here is a list of a few of the most common warning signs that a vehicle needs a Coolant Fluid Exchange:
Leaking coolant fluid (mostly toward the front of the engine)
Engine temperature is running hotter than normal
Check engine light is on
Coolant Fluid exchange indicator light is on
What is a Cooling System Cleanse?
Cooling System Cleanse Service takes Cooling System Service to the highest level of quality. While a simple exchange might do the trick for a while, some of the contaminated Coolant Fluid remains inside the vehicle adding preventable risk to the engine. Cooling System Cleanse uses a special solvent and equipment to flush out nearly 100% of the old coolant fluid while cleansing the internal components responsible for circulating coolant fluid. Cleanse service cleans and conditions the hoses, water pump, thermostat, and radiator to factory specifications. The most significant benefits of Cleanse Service is cleaning and protecting the Cooling System for the longest service life possible, ensuring the engine runs nice and cool, and reducing long-term vehicle maintenance costs.
