Your vehicle’s cooling system reduces engine heat to allow all of the components of your engine to function properly. When your spark plugs ignite, the fuel within the cylinders of your engine create small explosions which propel your vehicle forward. The heat generated by this combustion creates temperatures which can easily ruin your engine. That’s why a well functioning cooling system is vital to protecting your vehicle’s engine. Most cooling systems utilize a liquid coolant, sent out through channels within the engine which absorbs the inside the engine. Moving through these channels, the coolant effectively maintains a safe engine temperature that wards off major engine damage. Remember your antifreeze and coolant system need to be flushed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles or every 2 years; whichever comes first. Also, be sure to have your coolant levels checked with every oil change.
