Although gasoline engines have greatly improved, most of the energy created by a vehicle’s motor is still lost to heat (about 70%) rather than converted to mechanical power. The primary function of a vehicle’s cooling system is to keep the engine from overheating by transferring the heat to the air. This is accomplished by circulating antifreeze through the cooling system via tubes, the motor and the radiator. Antifreeze is specially formulated so that it helps prevent cooling system erosion, and helps maintain an optimal temperature for engine performance no matter what the outside weather conditions may be.
Regularly servicing the cooling system is important to prevent overheating of the motor, freezing and premature corrosion of the cooling system. Our cooling system service removes the old antifreeze from your radiator and replaces it with new antifreeze in accordance with your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.
