Coolant System Services

Keeping your car’s heating and cooling systems operating properly may involve a variety of maintenance services or repairs.  Having your vehicle checked regularly can help identify and resolve issues before they become more serious—and more costly--problems. Parts associated with your heating system are:

  • serpentine belt
  • cooling sensor
  • heater core
  • heater hoses
  • radiator
  • radiator cap
  • radiator hoses
  • radiator fan/fan clutch
  • anti-freeze
  • water pump
  • thermostat
  • fan belts

How does your vehicle generate heat?

The heat that is generated by your engine is used to warm the air that flows into the passenger compartment  to a comfortable temperature.

How do I know if there is a problem?

·       Temperature light may come on

·       Temperature gauge readout is out of normal range

·       Heater does not produce heat

What kind of maintenance should I be doing?

Coolant (or  anti-freeze) protects your engine from overheating and from freezing.  Check your owner’s manual or contact your mechanic for the manufacturer recommendations for replacement of the anti-freeze in your vehicle. This can be performed as a "drain and fill” or you may choose to have a complete flush of the radiator system that typically includes the following:

  • Complete inspection of radiator system
  • Pressure test the system to check for leaks
  • Add flush chemicals to the radiator
  • Power flush system
  • Refill system with anti-freeze
  • Add sealant/lubricant as needed
