Car Maintenance Includes A Cooling System Power Flush To Keep Your Vehicle Safe

Car maintenance at Brookside “66” is done by our expert staff of technicians who understand its importance. Such maintenance extends the life of your vehicle and keeps you and your family safe on the road. A cooling system power flush can help your vehicle’s water pump and plugs that rust or leak.

When performed regularly, car maintenance will:

  • Reduce the depreciation of your vehicle
  • Make the car worth more
  • Avoid costly repairs to transmissions, engines and other vehicle components
  • Make car perform better
  • Allow you to travel safer
  • Reduce “down time” for repairs
  • Allow you to plan service work and not get caught with so much repair work

COOLING SYSTEM POWER FLUSH: Engine coolant (antifreeze) has additives to prevent corrosion, lube the water pump bearings and seals, and prevent electrolysis. The “anti-freezing” part does not wear out, however. Since Brookside “66” started recommending power flushes, water pump jobs have dropped 17%, and replacing rusty, leaking freeze plugs has almost stopped. We recommend flushing your antifreeze every 30,000 miles or two years.

Car maintenance cooling system power flush keeps your vehicle safe.

What is the cooling system flush all about?

Your cooling system is what keeps your car from overheating. It works by circulating a mixture of water and coolant through the engine. Over time the coolant mixture becomes contaminated with scale and rust, which can clog and damage the cooling system components. A cooling system flush essentially flushes out the entire system of contaminants and replaces the coolant mixture with fresh coolant and water.

Keep in mind:

Brookside “66” will drain the fluid, clean the system with coolant cleaner, and use water to remove the remaining coolant. After cleaning the system, an ASE-certified technician will fill it up with new coolant. This process is effective and an approved industry method of flushing your vehicle’s cooling system.

How it’s done:

  • Install flush chemical to radiator
  • Bring the car to operating temperature
  • Drain the old coolant
  • Close valve and refill with water
  • Repeat the process
  • Fill radiator with a 50/50 mixture of coolant and water
  • Check for leaks and fan operation

Our recommendation:

  • Some vehicles are equipped with a low coolant sensing system. Should this light come on, have your vehicle inspected for leaks or other possible causes for the low coolant level.
  • Follow the service car maintenance schedule provided by the manufacturer to get the coolant replaced at regular intervals. In general, it is a good practice to change the coolant every 30,000 miles.

What are the common symptoms indicating you need to flush the cooling system?

  • Check engine warning light is on
  • Low coolant warning light is on
  • Engine is overheating
