Your coolant is what keeps your vehicle from overheating. Mixed with water, it circulates through your engine. Over time, it can start to get rust and scale that can clog and damage your engine. By flushing your cooling system, you are cleaning out old mixture and replacing it with new coolant and water.
It is recommended that you have this done 40,000 to 50,000 miles, when your Check Engine warning light or Low Cooling warning light comes on, or when your engine is overheating. Always check your vehicle manual for exact milage of when your vehicle needs a coolant flush or contact Benny Boyd Liberty Hill to speak to a specialist.
Understanding the processes of work that you are going to get done on your car is important because you want to ensure that the mechanic did it correctly. Your mechanic will first drain the coolant that you have in your engine and use coolant cleaner to clean the system. Then he or she will use water to flush out the remaining coolant. Next, they will fill it with fresh coolant and water mixture. Having this done is very important to ensure your vehicle will not overheat and keep the engine clean and healthy.
