Here is more information about the engine coolant fluid exchange service.
The cooling system of a vehicle consists of several components such as the thermostat, fans, radiator, and coolant fluid. The role of the coolant fluid is to absorb the excess heat from the engine and disperse it to the surroundings. The coolant is made from a special blend of chemicals designed for optimum heat transfer. Using water or other fluids not designed for this purpose can result in serious damage to your vehicle. Over time the coolant fluid can become ineffective in regulating the heat and requires a replacement service. In an engine coolant fluid exchange service, the old fluid is flushed and replaced with fresh fluid. At
If you continue to drive with ineffective coolant fluid, you risk boiling over or locking up the engine. We recommend you consult the owner’s manual of your vehicle for the service interval for the coolant fluid exchange service. If the vehicle manufacturer has not provided any recommendation or if your vehicle has unique driving conditions, our technicians will be glad to assist you in determining the right service interval for your needs. We can inspect the quality of the coolant fluid using test strips to check for acidity and a hydrometer to check if the fluid will be able to offer adequate boiling and freezing protection.
