As your engine heats and cools, deposits of metal are introduced into your radiator. This is a normal process. As this happens, the PH of your antifreeze and water mixture is changing and can be very corrosive causing your engine, radiator, water pump, and other cooling system components to collect metal deposits. These deposits cause early failure of cooling system components. Your vehicle will run hotter which will also shorten the life of your engine and transmission. Having a cooling system exchange can help extend the life of your vehicle. Your cooling system should be checked yearly and PH (ideal PH is 9.5 to 10.5) and antifreeze protection adjusted as needed. It is recommended that a coolant exchange be done every 30,000 miles.
Our cooling system service includes an inspection of all belts, hoses and the flushing and replacement of coolant. The procedure also includes a pressure test, which could disclose a leaking radiator, hose, heater core or pressure cap.
If you believe you need a coolant exchange or any other auto repair service please call Mike’s Auto Repair Service at 714-375-3145 today and we’ll set up an appointment.
