Automobile Fluid Changes & Flush

Automotive Fluid Change

There are several fluids that you need to be aware of in your car or light truck, and we give a brief over-view of all. But for now, let's focus on your cars coolant system:

 

Heating & Cooling System Services

Failure of the heating and cooling system is the #1 cause of roadside breakdown, which is why heating and cooling system service is such an important part of maintaining your vehicle.

Your vehicle's engine generates a lot of heat. That heat can be beneficial because it warms up the engine to operating temperature and warms the oil so that it can circulate easily to lubricate vital engine parts. At the same time, if the heating system is not kept under control the engine can overheat and be severely damaged. If you notice that your vehicle is beginning to overheat, it's very important to have the heating and cooling systems checked as soon as possible to help avoid some of the worst engine damage and repairs.

We recommend having your heating and cooling system inspected regularly to help identify any possible problems before a component fails. Parts such as the radiator, hoses, cooling fans, water pumps and thermostat can wear out or begin to develop leaks. Bring your car or truck into any of our Manatee Avenue Service Stations in Bradenton Florida to have one of our expert technicians inspect your entire heating and cooling system to make sure there are no problems.

 

WHY SHOULD YOU FLUSH AND REFILL YOUR VEHICLE'S ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM?


Neglecting your vehicle's cooling system can and will lead to a progressive failure of engine components such as water pumps, internal engine gaskets, freeze plugs and aluminum parts deterioration. Also heater core and radiator leaks can occur. These failures can be costly to repair and can result in being stranded!!!

You see, after about 2 years the lubricants and additives in the antifreeze start to loose their effectiveness due to constant changes in engine temperature and electrical forces. A chemical reaction between engine coolant flowing over different metals within the engine cooling system and antifreeze will begin to react with the electricity from the numerous electrical components. This reciting will force a change in the pH balance of the coolant and turns it into an acidic state which in turn corrodes the engine metals and cooling system components which causes premature parts failures, gasket leaks and costly repairs.

By having us perform a COOLING SYSTEM FLUSH AND REFILL on your vehicle you can SAVE MONEY, the engine will RUN COOLER, and you'll have a MORE DEPENDABLE , SAFER vehicle.

 

THE BASICS BEHIND COOLING SYSTEM FLUSH & FILL SERVICES

In your vehicle, fuel is converted into heat energy, which means the internal temperatures in your engine compartment can increase dramatically in a short period of time. If your engine overheats, it can cause major damage to various components and cost you a significant amount of time and money to fix. The efficiency of a cold engine is low in comparison to a warm engine, and cold engines are prone to pollution. Your vehicle’s cooling system helps maintain a constant internal temperature. Ethylene glycol is mixed with water to make antifreeze, which is used in cooling systems to regulate your engine’s temperature. Your engine’s coolants must be capable of withstanding cold temperatures without freezing and warm temperatures without boiling. Aside from maintaining constant engine temperatures as it passes through the cooling system, antifreeze prevents corrosion and lubricates engine components to ensure that everything moves and performs properly. A cooling system flush is necessary for maintaining proper performance levels.

 

WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE COOLING SYSTEM FLUSH & FILL SERVICES PERFORMED

Since antifreeze helps regulate your engine’s internal temperature, it is important to check antifreeze levels often. Coolant levels should only be checked when the engine is completely cool, because engine coolant can be hot enough to burn. Significantly lowered coolant levels usually mean you have a leak, or your engine is running too hot. Driving your vehicle on old engine coolant is a leading cause of cooling system failure. The purpose of any cooling system flush is to rid your vehicle of its old antifreeze. Our service staff can drain antifreeze from your radiator, flush out your cooling system, and add new antifreeze to your radiator. We are happy to do cooling system flushes on vehicles of all makes and models, and our knowledgeable service staff will approach your cooling system flush and fill with complete competence to deliver quality repairs.
