The cooling system’s primary objective is to provide protection against engine overheating.
Engines produce a lot of heat, and the cooling carries heat away from the engine by circulating anti-freeze/coolant through the system and carrying it to the radiator for cooling. Your cooling system ensures that the engine heats quickly and then remain at a constant and optimal temperature for efficient performance.
Why ? - does my cooling system need a service?
The coolant wears out and needs to be changed to prevent the breakdown of your system components.
Changing your antifreeze is just like changing your engine oil and it should be done on regular bases as part of preventive maintenance. This will help prolong the life of your heating and cooling system and prevent costly future repairs.
When ? - does my cooling system need servicing?
We recommend you get a seven point preventative cooling system maintenance check performed at least once every two years.
If the car is new, your vehicle owner’s manual will indicate when this should be done.
Our cooling system inspection identifies areas that need attention, and consists of the following:
- Inspection of all cooling system components
- A radiator cap pressure test
- A thermostat check for proper opening and closing
- Pressure test the entire cooling system to identify leaks
- Inspect and check the radiator
- Inspect and check the water pump
- Heater hoses
- Electric or viscous fan operations
- Inspect or replaced Welsh / Frost Plugs
- Inspect all cores fitted – Heater, oil, intercooler, transmission cooler etc.
- Flush, clean, replace coolant and bleed entire system
