Chevrolet Coolant Fluid Exchange in Elkins, WV

For your vehicle to function properly, you need to make sure that there is enough engine coolant, also known as antifreeze. Antifreeze is a fluid designed to keep the engine cool. When the car is running, the engine creates a great deal of energy and heat. The antifreeze absorbs the heat and keeps the water in the engine from boiling during the hot summer months. Because antifreeze does so many different things, it is important that it is always topped off, and you have a coolant fluid exchange performed regularly. It is recommended that you have this service performed every five years or every 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Why Should I Have A Coolant Fluid Exchange Performed?

There are several benefits of having a coolant fluid exchange performed on a regular basis. These include:

  • This service will remove any scale or deposits that build up in the coolant over time. When too much debris builds up, the coolant can't do its job, which will cause the engine to overheat.
  • New antifreeze contains additives that can lubricate the water pump, extending its lifespan.
  • New antifreeze will prevent rust from building up in the water pump and other parts of the vehicle.
  • Old coolant fluid can become very acidic. When this happens, it can damage or break down the water pump bearing, the rubber hoses, and the aluminum components in the engine.
  • When the antifreeze is flushed out, the entire cooling system can be inspected for any issues. This includes the thermostat, the radiator, and all of the belts and hoses. This will ensure that the cooling system is fully functional and is not malfunctioning.

How Do I Know If I'm Due For a Coolant Fluid Exchange?

If you aren't sure when your vehicle last had a coolant fluid exchange, or if you have never had one, your vehicle may experience some issues. These include:

  • Low coolant levels: If you are low on coolant, there could be a hole in your radiator. The problem could also be that the coolant is breaking down due to the debris that has built up in it.
  • Discolored coolant: If the coolant in your vehicle has changed color or becomes cloudy, it is time for a coolant fluid exchange.
  • Overheating engine: Several issues can cause your engine to overheat. One of these issues is dirty engine coolant. If you find that your vehicle is overheating, you should have a coolant fluid exchange performed.
