Cooling system failure is one of the top causes of roadside breakdown.
Antifreeze/coolant is like medicine for your car. To say your engine is hot when it’s running is a colossal understatement. Its internal temperature can reach more than 1400° F. Antifreeze/coolant (which is the same fluid) is your engine’s buffer, its protective shield against the blast furnace it works in. It keeps your engine from literally melting. And in winter, this wonder fluid can keep your engine from turning into ice.
How does antifreeze/coolant work?
Antifreeze/coolant fluid maintains the temperature of your engine to keep your engine from overheating in hot weather and freezing in cold weather. Antifreeze fluid wears out and loses its protective qualities, interrupting proper flow through your engine. An antifreeze/coolant fluid exchange service will:
- Wash out and loosen rust, scale, corrosion, mineral deposits and other contaminants
- Renew critical coolant components and corrosion inhibitors
- Improve coolant flow and heat transfer
- Help prevent overheating
*NEVER CHECK FLUID WHILE ENGINE IS HOT
Oil ‘N’ Go recommends changing your antifreeze/coolant fluid every 30,000 miles.
