What you should know about Antifreeze and Engine Coolant

Antifreeze and Engine Coolant are the life of your vehicle.
They are just as important as your oil!

What Should You Do?

antifreeze and engine coolantIf you want to play it smart, check your antifreeze and engine coolant levels on a weekly basis, especially in extreme temperatures. Most vehicles have see-through, plastic reservoirs, clearly marked with fill lines to make it easy. Whatever you do, don’t open the radiator cap when the vehicle is hot, you’ll get scalded!

If your radiator fluid is low, top it off in the reservoir. Be sure you use the proper radiator fluid (this should be listed in your owner’s manual), mixed with the proper amount of water (read the packaging for the best mixture).

It’s also a good idea to have your vehicle’s radiator flushed by a service professional at
least every other year (this involves emptying the radiator and flushing it out with water). The professionals at Cool Car are ready to serve you today.
