Your car's engine needs coolant to keep it at the right temperature all year-round. It's important to maintain your cooling system, which is why we recommend a coolant change every two years to prolong the life of your car.
Coolant is a mixture of antifreeze and water, which stops the engine from freezing in winter, and overheating in summer.
As part of the coolant/antifreeze change, our expert technicians will drain and refill your coolant, as well as safely disposing old fluid.
What are the benefits of a coolant change?
Without engine coolant, your car would quickly overheat. Coolant is a mixture of antifreeze and water, which helps to regulate the temperature of your engine in extreme conditions.
Just like engine oil and brake fluid, coolant degrades over time, and at some point, will no longer get the job done, putting your car at risk of breaking down. That's why we recommend a coolant change every two years to keep your car running smoothly.
A coolant change will:
- Stop your engine from seizing up in extreme weather
- Remove rust and deposits than can build up over time
- Prevent clogging and degradation of engine components, prolonging the life of your car.
How often should I change my coolant?
There are several factors which affect how often you need to change your coolant, such as car type, age and driving style. Some manufacturers recommend a coolant change after 30,000 miles, others 50,000. Check your owner's manual to get accurate information for your car.
How long does it take?
The coolant change takes around one hour to complete.
