Your vehicle's cooling system is one of the most important parts of your engine. And if not properly taken care of it can lead to overheating and even more serious damage like total engine failure. The primary job of the cooling system is to keep the engine from overheating by transferring the heat that the gas in your vehicle produces into air.
The engine in your vehicle runs best at a fairly high temperature. And when the engine is cold, parts wear out faster and the engine doesn't run as efficient. So another important job of the cooling system is to allow the engine to heat up as quickly as possible, and then keep the engine at a consistent temperature. This will prolong the life of the engine and reduce the possible risk of inadequate cooling system maintenance. Driving habits, the type of antifreeze you use, and extreme outside temperatures will determine how often your radiator needs to be flushed.
If your car is experiencing any overheating or cooling issues don't wait until it's too late and your engine suffers. Bring it to the professionals at Halls Tire & Auto Service and let us diagnose and fix the problem before more serious issues arise.
