Engine coolant is a liquid mixture of antifreeze and water inside the radiator. Coolant, as its name suggests, maintains the temperature of your engine and prevents it from overheating, especially in extreme temperatures. Unfortunately, coolant will naturally break down over time. For proper engine maintenance, drivers should have their coolant flushed and replaced with new coolant when needed.

Because every vehicle has different needs, different makes and models will require different coolant mixtures and schedules for proper maintenance. Check your vehicle’s owner manual for detailed information. A good rule of thumb for the average vehicle is every three years or 30,000 miles, whichever comes first. A trained automotive professional can help you find the best coolant and schedule for your vehicle.
Failing to flush your radiator and replace its coolant could result in permanent damage to your vehicle. Older coolant fails to protect the cooling system from corrosion as well as newer coolant. This can result in cooling system leakage, clogged radiator hoses, issues with the water pump and a faulty thermostat. All of these issues can result in a breakdown of the cooling system and increase the risk of engine overheating.
