Coolant Fluid Exchange at Viking Motors in Arborg
When you drive your car and turn on the engine, the combustion process will end up creating a lot of energy. This energy can then naturally cause your engine to start to heat up very quickly. If this does not get corrected, it could cause your engine to overheat and cause a lot of damage to your car. To help with this, all cars today come with a radiator that uses coolant fluid to help keep the car cool. All drivers are going to need to schedule a coolant fluid exchange service from time to time.
When to Exchange Coolant Fluid
While it is ideal to keep the coolant fluid fresh, vehicles come with wildly different recommendations for exchange service with some newer models having lifetime coolant and older models continue to need exchange service at the manufacturer’s recommended mileage. This situation makes it clear that inspecting the coolant fluid regularly no matter what the manufacturer recommends is a safe move toward protecting the engine. If you notice that your car is starting to get too hot, you should also bring your car in for this service.
Coolant Fluid Exchange in a Sentence
When you have the coolant fluid exchange service completed at Viking Motors, a certified technician will drain all of the old fluid, inspect the system to ensure it is leak-free, and will then install fresh factory-authorized coolant to secure factory specifications.
Consequences of a Missed Coolant Fluid Exchange
If you have gone past the recommended interval, or if your dashboard says that the coolant is running low, you should never delay a much-needed coolant fluid exchange service. When you delay this service, you will begin experiencing fuel economy issues and rapid wear due to excessive heat. If this occurs, it could start to do a lot of damage to the engine.
