Engine Coolant Replacement

Our ASE-certified mechanics are happy to fix and help preserve your car, truck, van or SUV's engine. One way to keep it running is by guaranteeing that the cooling system is helping to prevent the engine from overheating. Oftentimes, unique tools are needed to service an engine's cooling system, and at 12th Street Auto Care Center, our local Sioux Falls, SD auto repair shop is equipped with those tools and special equipment.

Signs My Car, Truck, Van or SUV Engine’s Coolant Needs Replacing

At times, it is not the coolant leaks that cause your engine to overheat, but the use of coolant itself. After years of use, antifreeze, or coolant, can lose its usefulness and no longer work as well to prevent your car, truck, van or SUV’s engine from freezing or overheating. That’s when you need to get an engine coolant replacement.

Depending on the kind of coolant you use to fill your engine cooling system, it can work well within your car, truck, van or SUV anywhere from three to seven years before you  need to have your coolant replaced.

One interesting fact regarding coolant is it comes in different colors. This includes green, red, blue, yellow, orange and pink. You should replace your coolant if the color of your antifreeze is not the same as when you first poured it in, if it’s been a long time since your last replacement, if you have any leaks or if you visit our local Sioux Falls, South Dakota auto repair shop and one of our ASE-certified mechanics tells you it’s time to replace the engine’s coolant.
