A cooling system fluid exchange is the process of replacing the fluids in your car’s cooling system with a new mixture. This is necessary because over time engine coolant (like other automotive fluids) breaks down leading to a reduction in efficiency, car performance, and can become damaged over a long period of time. The need for a cooling system fluid exchange varies depending on your driving habits and the type of coolant your car uses. Some coolants should be flushed every 15,000 to 24,000 miles while other more advanced mixtures can last up to 150,000 miles however, not every car is compatible with these types of advanced coolants.
As you drive over long periods of time coolant breaks down due to exposure to the elements, ware, and accumulated debris from your surrounding environment and the cooling system itself. As functional coolant is required to regulate your car’s temperature it should be exchanged when you notice issues such as random overheating, low coolant levels, and fluid discoloration.
Without a cooling system fluid exchange, your car’s performance over time can be negatively impacted. Common issues include overheating, random stalling, and sudden stops. In the most extreme cases, your engine overheating can damage other parts such as gaskets and cylinders. Also, bad coolant can also damage your car in colder weather leading to freezing damage. In addition to the monetary costs, this can also be a safety hazard as your engine stalling in traffic can lead to accidents or loss of control.
