North Hills Auto Explains the Importance of Proper Radiator Maintenance
Keeping your car’s engine cool is vital to reliability and saving you big money. Get a radiator flush and fill every 30,000 miles using the prescribed summer coolant/antifreeze. The various types of ferrous and nonferrous metals used in your car’s engine can have an adverse chemical reaction if not properly cared for. Materials like steel and aluminum can, over time, turn old coolant into an acid, which will eat away at internal engine gaskets. Flushing out the old and filling with the new will greatly reduce the chances of overheating due to failed gaskets and seals! There are many other high-value components to protect such as radiators, water pumps, and heater cores. Those items can be costly so...Get a coolant flush, not a wallet flush!
