The Importance of Having Your Vehicle's Cooling System Flushed

If your vehicle overheats, it could be from a number of sources. When the cooling system isn't functioning, the excessive heat could cause serious damage to the engine. The head gaskets could blow, the aluminum heads can become warped, and the engine could completely fail.

A cooling system that's functioning properly will circulate antifreeze to drive heat away from the engine. Antifreeze is a vital component of your vehicle's cooling system that is essential to prevent overheating.

The radiator is an important component of your vehicle's cooling system that has tubes that serve as the core of where the coolant flows to dissipate heat. You can reference your owner's manual or ask a team member here at Four Stars Ford to find out how often your vehicle needs a radiator flush. Having your cooling system flushed on a routine basis will protect your radiator. If you notice a puddle of coolant beneath your vehicle, it's best to have your cooling system inspected.
