Cooling system service in Surrey
If you have not changed your car coolant for more than a couple years, now is the perfect time to get a coolant system flush in Surrey at a low cost. Prevent car overheating and wear on your radiator and engine by replacing your car coolant today. When you drive, the radiator uses a mixture of coolant and water to keep your car’s engine at a low temperature. Over time, coolant breaks downs and works less effectively to keep your engine cool. This places stress on your radiator and causes the car engine to run hotter. Prolonged use of old coolant may result in major radiator and engine damage. Avoid costly repairs by having your car’s antifreeze and coolant regularly changed.
What is engine coolant?
Engine coolant, which is also known as antifreeze, is a combination of either ethylene glycol, diethylene glycol or propylene glycol mixed with water. When tested, those ingredients must be able to withstand a temperature of zero degrees or less, but also temperatures above the boiling point.
Avoid serious engine damage
If your engine overheats it could cause serious damage. You don’t want serious damage do you? To avoid this issue you need to have clean, fresh coolant in your engine.

Why is it important?
The engine cooling system in your vehicle circulates antifreeze through the engine and radiator. The antifreeze is formulated to prevent corrosion inside the cooling system and helps maintain optimal engine operating temperature regardless of outside conditions. Replacing the antifreeze at regular intervals can help prevent overheating, freezing and premature cooling system corrosion.
Extend the life of your engine
Coolant doesn’t last forever. It breaks down and stops performing its job. Make sure you get it regularly flushed to get all the benefits of a healthy engine. Proper flush habits can keep your vehicle running smoothly for a long time, meaning you will get to drive your vehicle for much longer.
How often should you get a coolant flush?
A coolant flush should be completed as described in your owner’s manual. However, typically, a coolant flush should be completed every 25,000 kilometres. There are exceptions to this common rule, and your vehicle may show the following symptoms:
- The engine’s temperature gauge fluctuates between the normal and hot range
- Seeing a small amount of green liquid (antifreeze) underneath the vehicle
- Noticeable rust appearing near the radiator
- A “maple syrup-like” odor coming from underneath the hood
- Seeing steam coming from the engine
In most cases, these are indicators that an engine overheating is imminent, and you should book a service appointment immediately.
What does a coolant flush entail?
Over time, the coolant becomes dirty and contaminated. The result is a weakened cooling system. Having clean coolant also ensures that your heating system will operate at its peak level. When a coolant flush is completed, we will first remove the old coolant. Additionally, we test the coolant for any abnormalities. The cooling system is made up of the radiator, hoses, thermostat, water pump, and fan belts. A coolant flush includes visually inspecting those elements for vulnerabilities. Prior to refilling the radiator with fresh coolant, the flush process is conducted using a cleaning solution to eliminate any sediment, residue, calcium deposits, and sludge from the cooling system. After the coolant is replaced, we conduct a final visual inspection of all connected parts to ensure there aren’t any fluid leaks.
