We all seem to live such busy lives and when it comes to car maintenance, it’s easy to overlook some of the smaller things. One of these is often your car’s coolant levels, yet if left unchecked this can cause serious and costly damage to your engine. A regular coolant change is essential.What Is Engine Coolant?
As the name suggests, engine coolant keeps your engine cool and prevents it from overheating. Indeed, with the correct mix of coolant, the boiling point of your engine fluids rises to 129 degrees Celsius. However, your engine coolant does so much more than this.
You’re probably aware that coolant also lowers the freezing point to -37 degrees Celsius, preventing your fluid freezing in all but the most severe conditions. What you might not know is that your car’s coolant also lubricates essential components, including the coolant pump and water pump, plus the radiator, thermostat and heater valves. In addition, your engine coolant has corrosion inhibitors that help protect the inside of your car’s engine.
When Should Coolant Be Changed?Quite often, a coolant change is not covered by a manufacturer’s service. So if you don’t specifically request it, it could be overlooked. To help prevent this, we recommend that the coolant in your vehicle’s cooling system is checked annually and completely replaced every two years.
Even if your coolant level ‘looks’ okay, this is no guarantee that it is. Over time, contaminants can cause your coolant to become acidic and lose its anti-corrosion properties. Having it checked will help you keep on top of this and also identify whether the coolant is ok, or whether it needs a complete flush and full coolant change.
