Signs That You Need a Coolant Flush

Your car’s engine needs to stay at a stable temperature range for you to drive smoothly and seamlessly. To make that happen, a fluid called coolant/antifreeze gets pushed throughout the engine to regulate the temperature. Unfortunately, the coolant doesn't stay effective forever. Over time, contaminants and grime can build up in the cooling system. A coolant flush can solve this problem and protects the engine from corrosion, keeping it in the best shape possible. Besides a simple inspection, how can you tell when you need a coolant flush?

Low Coolant  

You can pop open the hood and visually check your coolant levels. If the fluid looks too low, you may have a leak. Be sure to check if any bright-colored fluid is around or under your vehicle. We can also check for you when bringing your vehicle into Richman Automotive & Towing.

Bad Coolant Quality 

Another sign that may trigger a need for a fluid flush is if you find the coolant to be contaminated or discolored. You should avoid refilling a dirty cooling system as it won’t make much of a difference. 

Engine Overheating

If your car is constantly on the brink of overheating, it may be due to insufficient coolant. The engine works under very hot conditions. Without a clean flow of coolant, it can eventually overheat and cause irreversible engine damage.
