Replacing Old Coolant

Pro cooling system mechanics are happy to fix and help preserve your engine's durability. One method to keep it running is by guaranteeing that the cooling system protects against the engine from overheating. Sometimes, special equipment is required in order to service an engine's cooling system, which are owned by car repair shops like 12th Street Auto Care Center.

Flushing Your Engine Cooling System and Refilling It with Fresh Antifreeze

If you have tested your coolant, for example, with the pH Test, and you find that your coolant needs replacing, or if you want to experiment with some new coolant in your vehicle, 12th Street Auto Care Center can clean your engine cooling system before filling it up with fresh coolant. We recommend that you do this process. Cleaning out your system has a lot of pros, especially when it is done by professional auto mechanics, like at 12th Street Auto. We use a special machine to powerfully flush out any rust, sludge, crud and grime that might have accumulated in your engine cooling system over the years, due to the breaking down of the coolant. Also, by cleaning out the old coolant, the new coolant you add will be fresh and useful. If mixed with any of the old antifreeze, your coolant’s usefulness could diminish significantly and potentially cause damage to your system or engine. Once it is all cleaned out, it is ready to be refilled. 12th Street Auto recommends a coolant system power flush and refill, because it is the best way to clean out your engine cooling system and ensure its longevity.
