Coolant System Service

Coolant Flush- A flush helps to remove deposits which get pushed out with the old antifreeze. This is important since these build ups can cause overheating or even damage your radiator.

Flushing a car’s radiator is a procedure that helps make sure the cooling system works smoothly at all times, as it eliminates the dirt, rust, and various harmful particles that build up inside the system over time. If the coolant, a 50/50 mix of distilled water and antifreeze, becomes too contaminated, it won’t be able to efficiently cool the engine while running. In the winter, it can fail to prevent a freeze-up while the car is not running, which would cause serious and sometimes irreparable damage to the engine (such as a cracked block or head).

Additionally, if the coolant is not changed on time, it starts losing its anti-corrosion capabilities, which can result in deterioration of the various metals that the engine is composed of, including aluminum, steel, and copper, among others. An excessive buildup of scale and corrosion in the system can clog small passages in the radiator, water pump, and the engine’s water jackets, and can even begin to build up in the heater core.

Over time the coolant circulating in the engine can become contaminated.  This contamination can cause deposits to build up in the cooling system leading to flow restrictions. An excessive buildup of scale and corrosion in the system clogs the small passages in the radiator, water pump, and the engine’s water jackets, and can even begin to build up in the heater core. If the coolant, a 50/50 mix of distilled water and antifreeze, becomes too contaminated, it won’t be able to efficiently cool the running engine resulting in overheating. In the winter, it can fail to prevent a freeze-up while the car is not running, which would cause serious and sometimes irreparable damage to the engine (such as a cracked Engine block or Cylinder head).   Contaminated Coolant will also lose its anti-corrosion capabilities, which can result in deterioration of the various metals including aluminum, steel, and copper, that the engine is composed of.  To prevent these issues a Coolant Flush is recommended at various mileages depending on vehicle manufacture and coolant type.

A typical coolant flush consists of fully draining the coolant and replacing it with new fresh coolant that meets OEM recommendations.  In some cases if the coolant has not been serviced regularly cleaning chemicals may also be used in order to eliminate the dirt, rust, and various harmful particles that build up in the system.  At Import Auto we use factory recommendations, real world experience, and fluid conditions to dictate our recommendations.  By using our Digital Inspections we are able to show you pictures to better explain our recommendations and why we made them.  By catching these items before they become a major issue we can help keep your money where it belongs: in your pocket.  Call us at 435-752-1246, text us at 435-222-2830 or stop in and see us at 502 West 1400 North in Logan Utah.  Our service writers and technicians are here for you.
