7 Reasons Drivers Need A Cooling System Check

| By: Christian Brothers Automotive

The ASE-certified technicians at our West Frisco auto repair shop will make sure your system is ready for winter!

The last thing you need is to be stranded on the side of the road during the holidays.

Here are 7 reasons you should schedule a cooling system inspection today.

  1. The cooling system uses coolant (an antifreeze mixture) to maintain the temperature in your engine. This chemical compound will keep your engine from freezing during the cold winter months.

  1. Despite its name, your cooling system also heats the engine to keep it warm during a cold winter. Your engine requires a specific temperature to remain operable. The cooling system maintains that temperature.

  1. The coolant’s quality decreases as it ages. If your coolant is old, it’s not properly lubricating your engine. It could also cause rust and corrosion throughout the engine.

  1. Your owner’s manual will tell you how often to flush your radiator. A coolant flush forces out all old fluid, along with any built-up waste and debris. This ensures the coolant continues flowing easily through the entire system.

  1. Manufacturers expect your cooling system to be serviced once a year. Following this helpful rule of thumb is a simple way to extend the life of your car.

  1. Leaks are a sign of bigger problems. If a leak is unaddressed, it could blow out and spew corrosive chemicals through your engine. To avoid leaks, have your hoses and fittings checked regularly.

  1. If your engine overheats, even just once, it can cause permanent damage. With Christmas right around the corner, don’t leave yourself vulnerable to a huge repair bill.

Our experienced technicians provide excellent, thorough cooling system inspections. Our goal is to keep you safe on the road and prevent an unfortunate breakdown. If it’s time for cooling system service, call Christian Brothers Automotive Frisco West in Frisco, Texas today. See the nice difference!
