Radiator flush might seem optional for some people, but it is 100% a fundamental part of vehicle maintenance. Radiator fluid, also commonly known as antifreeze or coolant, is a bright-colored liquid that keeps your car cool. In other words, it prevents your engine from overheating and protects you from costly repairs down the line.
Every time you drive, coolant fluid gets pushed through the engine system. In the process, it picks up debris and pollutants which can corrode. If you leave the fluid in your car for too long, rust and scaling can build up to damage your engine and cooling system components. Leaks are a common side effect of poor cooling system maintenance.
A radiator flush is like a blood transfusion for a motor vehicle. The complex process involves infusing water and cleaning agents to rinse out the fluid lines. And a professional will follow up with fresh antifreeze or coolant so that your coolant can be free of contaminants.
A coolant flush has many benefits, including:
- Properly lubricates your water pump
- Extend the life of your engine
- Prevent fluid leaks, corrosion, build-up, and foaming
- Stop engine overheating
