The cooling system is the heart of your vehicle. It keeps all the parts that the radiator coolant comes into contact with lubricated and cool. This includes the radiator, the hoses to and from the radiator, the engine itself, the heater core, water pump, freezes plugs, and head gaskets.
The coolant is in a sealed system and should never leak from any area. When hot liquids are in contact with metal, electrochemical degradation takes place raising the acid level and it breaks down the coolant. Eventually, the coolant will no longer do its job of cooling because it is dirty.
This is an important service for your car to extend its life. Fortunately, there are some signs that will alert you to needing this service. If your vehicle is near or over the mileage recommended by the manufacturer, it is time for a cooling system cleanse and fluid exchange.
If the coolant in your radiator has changed color from when it is new, then it needs changing. If you notice a sweet and hot smell coming from under the hood or through the air conditioning vents, it can be a sign of a coolant leak that needs addressing. Your vehicle will run at a higher temperature if you need new coolant in it or have a coolant leak.
If you notice any the signs of needed your cooling system checked out and don’t do it right away, you could be facing some very expensive repairs. You could be facing replacing your radiator, heater core, water pump, head gaskets, freeze plugs, radiator, and hoses as well as your engine if it overheats and seizes.
