4 GREAT Benefits OF PERFORMING A COOLANT FLUSH
Just like oil lubricates the engine of your vehicle, radiator fluid, a combination of water and anti-freeze, lubricates the water pump which circulates the radiator fluid in the engine for cooling purposes. After extended use, the radiator fluid loses its lubrication properties and its ability to keep from freezing at sub-zero temperatures.
1. Removes Rust and Scale Deposit
A flush removing the old anti-freeze helps to remove the rust and scale deposits that build up over time. This is important since these build-ups can cause overheating or damage to your radiator.
2. Lubricates Water Pump
The new anti-freeze contains additives that work to lubricate your automobile’s water pump, which can help extend the life of your water pump.
3. Removes Old, Acidic Coolant
Getting a coolant flush will prevent the old anti-freeze from becoming acidic. This is important because once it starts to become acidic it will break down and can damage the bearing in the water pump, the rubber hoses and the aluminum components of the engine.
4. Adds New Additives
The additives in the new anti-freeze also help prevent rust from building up in the water pump, which allows the cooling system to operate more efficiently.
