When a vehicle’s cooling system isn’t flushed, the old coolant will degrade over time and cause corrosion. Automotive experts typically recommend that drivers should replace their coolant every 30,000 to 50,000 miles, or every three to five years. Vehicle owners wondering where to go for coolant flushing in Fort Worth, TX should schedule an appointment with Moritz Kia, which has multiple locations in and around the greater Ft. Worth area.
Drivers can usually find information about their vehicle’s recommended coolant flushing schedule in their owner’s manual. Because every vehicle manufacturer’s cooling systems are designed differently, every model has its own unique time frames when it comes to flushing the system and replacing its coolant.
Over time, old coolant will become acidic and begin to corrode the internal mechanics of the cooling system, which can result in various issues over time. Old coolant is also not as effective as new coolant in terms of rust prevention, which can result in damage to the radiator, water pump, hoses, thermostat and other components.
Testing strips can be used to measure the acidity of a vehicle’s coolant. It’s also possible that the coolant contains contaminants, in which case it should be flushed and replaced with new coolant regardless of maintenance schedule. Drivers who keep up to date with their cooling system’s maintenance schedule are less likely to experience issues such as engine overheating.
