Radiator fluid, better known as coolant or antifreeze, keeps your radiator cool. Car engines run hot, especially in warm weather, and without something to dissipate the excessive heat generated by the engine, your car can overheat quickly.
While radiator coolant is very important, like most fluids running through a system, it can build up unwanted contaminants and collect debris over time. Over time, your radiator coolant can cause radiator corrosion, generating rust, scaling or other debris that you do not want in your car’s radiator or engine. A coolant flush resolves this problem.
Symptoms indicating your car may need a coolant flush:
Your car overheats
Coolant leaking underneath your car
Grinding or knocking engine noise
Visible debris in your coolant
Steam or an odd smell rising from your hood
30,000 miles since your last coolant flush
