Wheaton Services: Coolant Flush
Did you know that each of our Drive Wheaton automobile dealerships has its very own full blown service department? Over the next few days, we’re going to highlight a few of the services that you can get done by stopping into one of our dealerships. First up for the Wheaton services: coolant flush! This is an extremely vital piece of regular service that you can get done at Wheaton Honda, Toyota on the Trail, or Don Wheaton Chevy Buick GMC Cadillac!
The heating and cooling system of your car does a lot more than simply allow you to manage the temperature of the cabin. While that’s important, especially on those frigid winter days in Alberta, it also manages the operating temperature of your drivetrain. Basically, it make sure that your engine doesn’t overheat causing you to break down on the side of the road, which you also don’t want at any time of the year but especially during the winter.
Checking this system would be another great way to prepare for winter, so we definitely recommend bringing it into one of our shops in the coming weeks. It is recommended that you flush your coolant at least once a year, so simply doing it every year right before the winter would be a good habit to get into. Coolant is what your radiator uses to lower that operating temperature we mentioned earlier, and running on bad coolant could lead to blowing your radiator altogether, which is going to cost a lot more than simply flushing the system once a year.
Feel free to give us a call at whichever service department you would need to come into if you have any questions about coolant, the heating and cooling system in your vehicle, or how the flush system works. We’d be happy to answer and get you set up with a service appointment and get your car in proper running condition.
