ABOUT OUR COOLANT/ANTIFREEZE FLUID SERVICE
What’s included with our coolant and antifreeze 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 do our radiator flush service, we’ll inspect and pressure-test your vehicle cooling system. Then, we’ll flush and replace your coolant in accordance with the precise recommendations of your vehicle manufacturer.
Why is routine coolant maintenance important?
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 do I need to have my coolant or antifreeze serviced?
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.
