How to Maintain Your Vehicle's Cooling System

Your vehicle's cooling system is critical to the overall operation of the engine. Its job is to keep your engine's temperature regulated on the road to prevent overheating. When an issue occurs with the cooling system, this can lead to severe engine damage and a broken down vehicle. Engine repairs can be costly if they are significant, so ensuring that your cooling system is properly maintained is vital. 

A great way to properly take care of your vehicle's cooling system is with frequent vehicle inspections and staying on top of any recommended maintenance. A regular inspection of your cooling system at our shop can help prevent major issues from occurring and will keep your vehicle running at its best! 

Another way that you can remain aware of your vehicle's cooling system is to understand how your vehicle runs and to be aware of any warning signs of cooling system or engine troubles. If you notice that the engine temperature warning light or check engine illuminates, we recommend getting your vehicle into our shop at your earliest convenience for an inspection. The sooner we fix the issue, the less damage that will be done to your engine overall. 

When it comes to the cooling system, you'll want to make sure that you have any recommended services taken care of when they are due. Coolant may need to be flushed periodically and vital components such as hoses, water pump, and the radiator should also be inspected regularly. 

The cooling system fluid will need to be flushed at one point or another, which consists of removing old coolant and flushing the system to clean it. Afterwards, new coolant is added to the tank. This helps ensure that the coolant is fresh and can properly dissipate heat from the engine to keep its temperature regulated.
