Reasons Why You Should Flush Your Radiator

July 29th, 2019 by

It's crucial for your car's long term health to flush the radiator according to manufacturer's recommendations listed in your owner's manual. Our customers often wonder why. Here's a brief explanation.

Your car's radiator holds coolant that circulates its core through a set of tubes. The tubes transfer heat to cooler fins that remain in constant contact with flowing air. The fins then dissipate the heat. A water pump drives the coolant from your radiator to and through your engine via special radiator hoses that keep heat moving out and cool moving in. An engine thermostat ensures healthy overall temperature ranges.

Over time, coolant breaks down and ceases to perform at its best. It also picks up rust and dirt that can clog your engine and radiator core. That's why flushing your radiator is essential. It preempts the type of optimal cooling that helps your engine withstand long days of running during warmer seasons.

Avoid a scene in which you're broken down on the side of the road with steam spewing from your car. Routine engine cooling and radiator service at our dealer maintenance department keeps your ride running smoothly and at the perfect temperature, prolonging the life and fitness of your vehicle.
