Summer is here. Which means you can expect plenty of long sunny days and a healthy dose of unrelenting heat. During this time, one of the most significant problems with cars is overheating due to an unmaintained coolant system. To make sure that your car is ready to handle it, consider having your radiator flushed. It’s an important part of car maintenance (especially in the summer) and will be a great benefit in the long run. Here’s why:
1. Your coolant system is extremely important during the summer months
Engine overheating can cause short term as well as long term problems with your vehicle. A radiator flush pushes several gallons of antifreeze through your coolant system to replace the old with the fresh antifreeze.
2. It removes rust, scale deposits and contaminants
These contaminants can build up in coolant systems over time increasing the likelihood of the engine overheating and causing damage to your radiator. A flush completely drains the radiator removing all rust, scale deposits and contaminants.
3. Increase the life of the water pump
The additives in the antifreeze will lubricate your car’s water pump - which extends its life overall.
4. Protection against rust and build up
The new antifreeze in your radiator will be much more equipped to fight off rust and other types of contamination - keeping your radiator functioning effectively!
5. System inspection
During the process of having your radiator flushed your car’s coolant system will receive an inspection to check for leaks in the system. You may catch something early that could have been more costly down the road.
