It is recommended to get a coolant change Birmingham, Little Bromwich after every 5-10 years (based on manufacturer instructions).
Benefits of Coolant Change
Prevents rust build-up
A coolant flush also removes any contaminants or dirt, dust, and debris from the engine. This helps in preventing the rust and overheating of the vehicle as well.
Increased water pump life
Experts use specific engine coolant with certain additives that help to lubricate the water pump. This increases the pump’s overall lifespan.
Coolant change service prevents any formation of acidic layer in the engine. This acidic layer can easily spread to other components and cause replacement expenses.
Improved engine life
Coolant prevents the engine from various negative effects of heat. Coolant further cools down the engine to avoid its complete breakdown.
Consequences of driving a car with old coolant
Old coolant cannot cool down a car’s engine efficiently. This can result in a temperature increase of up to 200 degrees. Another disadvantage is a sudden blowout or vehicle breakdown that might occur. Moreover, contaminated or old coolant reduces the radiator’s life as well. This might leave you with a non-functional vehicle. Other than this, cars with an old engine coolant have a lower resale value as compared to other vehicles due to engine and related components issues.
Signs that indicate a coolant change is required
- Grinding or knocking sounds from the radiator
- Overheating of the vehicle and engine
- Strange smells from the engine bay
- Coolant leak underneath the vehicle
- Signs of debris in the coolant
