Coolants degrade over time. Rust and scale deposits can build up in the cooling system which can lead to poor circulation, overheating and vehicle breakdown. Did you know that the U.S. department of Transportation states that cooling system failures are the leading cause of mechanical breakdowns on the nation’s highways? When cooling system failures do occur, they can result in very expensive repairs.
Your vehicle’s coolant plays a vital role in the performance and longevity of your vehicle. It is the primary way in which your engine rids itself of potentially damaging heat, that when not properly removed can lead to diminished performance and eventually to mechanical breakdown. Overheating caused by a poorly performing cooling system can also lead to performance problems and even failures of the engine and transmission.
Unlike engine oil, most of the engine’s coolant is not removed in a traditional drain-and-fill service. In fact, such traditional services replace only about 50% of the used coolant. The remainder is trapped inside the engine, the heater core and various lines and hoses. The addition of fresh coolant to this remaining used coolant can actually cause rust and scale deposits to loosen and clog coolant passages, leading to overheating.
Queen City Service’s Cooling System Flush Service removes up to 95% of the used coolant and contaminants.
Prior to the coolant exchange, a chemical cleaner maybe added to existing coolant to safely remove rust, sludge and scale deposits.
Following the Cooling System Flush Service, your vehicle’s cooling system is again ready for the toils of the road.
