ABOUT OUR RADIATOR AND COOLANT FLUSH SERVICE
What’s Included with our Radiator Flush Service at Goodyear Auto Service?
To help ensure that your engine stays cool under pressure and to help you stay out of the breakdown lane, we’ll start by inspecting your coolant or antifreeze level.
If you choose to proceed and purchase our radiator flush service, we’ll inspect and pressure-test your vehicle's cooling system. Next, your vehicle’s coolant will be flushed from the radiator and heater core, then replaced in accordance with the precise recommendations of your vehicle manufacturer.
What is the Importance of Coolant and Regular Maintenance?
The anticorrosion and lubricating properties in engine coolant break down over time, allowing rust, corrosion, and mineral deposits to form. This can result in overheating, engine damage, and costlier cooling system repairs down the road.
How Often Should Coolant be Flushed?
Maximize your confidence on the go (no matter how hot it gets under your hood) with a coolant service once a year. Recommendations vary between vehicle manufacturers and models. Motorist Assurance Program guidelines recommend referring to your vehicle owner's manual for replacement and/or service.
