Your vehicle’s cooling system is what keeps it at a proper operating temperature. The cooling system consists of two parts: the coolant, and the cooling components. In terms of the coolant, it’s important to have the right amount of it – if you don’t have enough your engine won’t stay cool. You also need the right type of coolant, since different makes require different formulations to protect against corrosion. And finally it needs to be fresh, as a coolant depletes with age and can start to eat away at the parts.
Cooling system components, like your radiator, can also start to leak or become clogged with deposits, and need to be regularly cleaned, repair or replaced in order to avoid costly engine damage. Your technician can make sure you get the right type of coolant for your vehicle, and make sure your cooling system components are functioning optimally.
