COMMON RADIATOR & COOLANT FLUSH QUESTIONS

Looking for assistance?

First, our service technicians will inspect your coolant levels to make sure they meet standard levels. If our inspection finds that a radiator flush is required and you choose to proceed, we'll inspect and pressure-test your vehicle's cooling system. Then, according to the manufacturer's specifications, we'll flush and replace your coolant.

Engine coolant loses its anticorrosion and lubricating properties over time, allowing rust, corrosion, and mineral deposits to form. Overheating, engine damage and more expensive cooling system repairs are all possible outcomes.

Recommendations differ depending on the vehicle manufacturer and model. As a best practice, scheduling a coolant service once a year can boost your confidence on the road (no matter how hot it gets under your hood).

For replacement and/or service, the Motorist Assurance Program recommends consulting your vehicle's owner's manual. Schedule an Appointment Today
