Why is Coolant Flush Necessary?

Coolant needs to be flushed mainly because it breaks down over the years and then invariably loses the ability which is to maintain optimum temperature of the engine and prevent corrosion. An engine’s cooling system’s main purpose is to essentially eliminate any of the heat which is produced by your engine throughout the combustion process. Which is why, without the engine’s cooling system, your engine would overheat real quick because of which many parts may suffer heat damage. Bring your car to a vehicle repair shop near you for a thorough diagnosis and inspection. 

Additionally, adding more antifreeze to your engine will only temporarily relieve coolant problems, but it will not solve the main issue. This is where a coolant flush is absolutely necessary.

Signs You Need A Coolant Flush

  • Leaking Fluid
  • Temperature gauge reads hotter than normal 
  • Grinding noise from under the hood of your vehicle
  • Check engine warning light

When your engine overheats – it can lead to serious and costly problems, so it is wise to visit car garage in Stansted at the first signs of temperature issues.
