Coolant Flush in Summerside, PEI
Why should I get this done?
We recommend that a coolant flush be done every 120,000kms. Engine coolant, also known as antifreeze, is a heat transfer fluid designed to remove excess heat from your engine. The engine creates a lot of energy and heat while the car is moving. The coolant absorbs the heat from the engine and stops the engine water from boiling in the summer. It also ensures metal parts don’t rust and rubber or plastic parts don’t corrode. Without the coolant, the heat produced during constant internal combustion would ruin the engine very quickly.
Over time, the old anti-freeze loses its anti-corrosive properties, which allows for contaminants to build up in the cooling system. Getting a coolant flush will clean these particles from the system. Getting a coolant flush will prevent the old anti-freeze from becoming acidic. This is important because once it starts to become acidic it will break down and can damage the bearing in the water pump, the rubber hoses and the aluminum components of the engine.
A coolant flushes remove rust and scale deposits, which build up over time. It’s important to get rid of these deposits because they can cause overheating and damage your entire cooling system. The new anti-freeze that goes in contains additives that work to lubricate your automobile’s water pump, which can help extend the life of your water pump. The additives in the new anti-freeze also help prevent rust from building up in the water pump, which allows the cooling system to operate more efficiently.
