It’s generally recommended to get a radiator cleaned via a cooling system flush every 2 years, but it’s an often-overlooked part of car maintenance. As it turns out, cleaning your radiator is an essential maintenance task, freeing corrosive build-up and any sludge that can cause leaks and blockages. It’s a shame because a coolant flush cost is far more affordable than any repairs due to its neglect.
Having a prudent and proactive outlook to radiator cleaning is a proven way to avoid untimely and expensive repairs.
Signs or Symptoms Your Vehicle Needs an Engine Coolant Flush:
1. Temperature gauge fluctuations outside of nominal ranges
2. Antifreeze/coolant leaking under the vehicle
3. Visible contaminants in the engine coolant
4. Steam coming from under the bonnet.
Coolant, as many people know it, is a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water. The engine can rust from the inside out without the addition of antifreeze. Over time, the coolant circulating in the radiator wears out and loses its protective properties. At the point of significant contamination, refilling coolant will not be enough. Eventually, you need a coolant replacement to continue performing at optimum levels.
Benefits of a radiator cleaner and coolant service include:
Your radiator is a component that may need to be replaced during the time you own your car, particularly if you drive long distances without having the unit inspected.
