Coolant Flushes

Want to keep your car running clean and worry-free? Farrar Tire Center is ready to assist with a coolant flush.

Typically a 50/50 ratio mixture of ethylene or propylene glycol and water, coolant, or antifreeze, absorbs heat from the engine and distributes it through the radiator. It also moves through the heat exchanger in the passenger compartment, contributing to the function of your vehicle's heating system. Over time, deposits clog the cooling system and accumulate in the radiator. Coolant flushes and fills keep deposits from building and prevent overheating, which is the most common cause of engine issues and breakdowns. Coolant flushes should usually be done every 30,000 miles. Antifreeze should be changed seasonally. Check your owner's manual for your vehicle manufacturer's recommendations.

You may need coolant/antifreeze service if:

  • The warning light is on
  • The engine is steaming
  • The engine is running hotter than normal
  • There are signs of fluid leaks

Our coolant flushes and service includes:

  • Inspection of the coolant/antifreeze system
  • Removal of old coolant/antifreeze and replacement with new fluid
  • Repair or replacement of any components as needed

If you are experiencing problems with your vehicle overheating, see us for a coolant flush for your system. Contact us today to set an appointment.

What do coolant flushes do for your vehicle?

Deterioration of coolant occurs because it functions in a hot and demanding environment. When the coolant rust inhibitors become depleted, the confined cooling passages in the engine and radiator are subject to corrosion. Corrosion will take place, even with the use of rust inhibitors. Rust from the engine block blocks radiator and heater passages, leading to the overheating of the engine. Your vehicle’s cooling system will be greatly compromised, if the coolant rust inhibitors stop working. Regular coolant flushes will prevent this.
