The antifreeze or coolant is perhaps the most vital part of your car's cooling system. This is the liquid mixture of antifreeze and water that runs throughout your car's cooling system and helps keep your car engine cool while running. An engine produces extreme amounts of heat when it is operating. The coolant system pumps antifreeze coolant thought the engine to draw heat away from it. It also helps to keep the engine block from freezing in extreme cold temperatures when the vehicle is parked.
You should periodically change the radiator fluid in your vehicle to help your car's cooling system function at its best. Over time, dirt and other contaminants can build up in the fluid, or it may become acidic. When this occurs, the radiator fluid is much less effective and should be changed. Neglect of the cooling system is one of the main causes of engine failure. For an engine to run efficiently its temperature must be maintained, and the cooling system is charged with the correct coolant, ensuring that it does not overheat.
Most car manufacturers recommend that you change the radiator fluid in your vehicle every 24,000 to 36,000 miles, or every 24 to 36 months.
The cooling system of every car is essential to performance, and it is important to ensure that all cooling system parts are maintained and replaced when necessary.
Changing the radiator fluid in your vehicle is a straightforward process that involves removing the drain plug from the bottom of your radiator, allowing the fluid to drain and then refilling the radiator with new antifreeze and water. However, flushing the radiator and cooling system before refilling it is also a good idea to help remove dirt and other contaminants that are not easily drained.
