Coolant pH Test

Expert cooling system mechanics are more than happy to fix and help preserve your engine's durability. One means to keep it running is by making sure that the cooling system avoids the engine from overheating. Occasionally, unique equipment is needed in order to service an engine's cooling system, which are possessed by car repair shops like 12th Street Auto Care Center.

Too Basic or Too Acidic Antifreeze

If you thought testing the antifreeze within your engine cooling system with a voltmeter was cool, what about testing the pH balance of antifreeze with pH strips? By testing the pH of your coolant, we can tell if the coolant within your engine cooling system is too basic or too acidic. The extreme levels are problematic. pH testing strips work well for this test. If the pH strip reads that its too acidic or basic, it is time to replace your old coolant.
