Do I Need A Coolant Flush?
How Do I Know If I Need a Coolant Flush?
There are a number of factors that could determine if your vehicle needs it’s coolant replaced. It doesn’t pass freeze/boiling point and pH test. It is contaminated with rust or other abnormal corrosives. The age of your current coolant is over 2 years. Your vehicle manufactures warranty or maintenance schedule show it’s due.
Unsure? Ask us at Protune Mechanical and have our mechanics check and test the condition of your coolant complimentry.
A Coolant Flush will help keep your engine from overheating and to avoid corrosion, flush through your cooling system and replenish it with new manufacturer specified coolant.
This will help your engine to stay hydrated and perform at optimal levels in warm and cool weather.
At Protune Mechanical as part of the coolant flush service will also check for:
Scheduled maintenance requirements
Fluid contamination, sludge, rust
Visible scaling and corrosion in the radiator
Low coolant level causes
Indications of Leaks
Condition of Cooling Pipes
Much like you, your car engine needs to be hydrated while running, especially in the summer weather on the Sunshine Coast. In order for your engine to maintain the desired operating temperature the cooling system needs to redistribute heat away from the engine. This is accomplished by circulating coolant from the engine and through the radiator.
Over time your coolant will start to break down from everyday usage and will stop protecting your cooling system properly.
This Can Cause Expensive Damage:
Major engine damage
Damage to the radiator
Damage to the heater core
Damage to cooling system components
Be Safe and Keep Your Coolant Renewed.
