Coolant Fluid Exchange

Coolant fluid was once called antifreeze and both names work. The fluid in your radiator goes through hoses and into your engine to keep it from getting too cold or too hot depending on the season.  Hancock County Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Newell, WV is here to help keep your car running well, and to change your coolant fluid when needed. Your owner's manual will tell you when to change this fluid, and even that has to be adjusted to how you drive and where you drive. We are a short drive from East Liverpool, OH, Wellsville, OH, and Chester, WV.

What Coolant Fluid Does

The engine coolant moves from the engine to the radiator, where it is cooled a little bit before returning to the engine. This keeps your engine from overheating. If it were not for this liquid your engine would literally burn up. The coolant also acts as an antifreeze in winter, which prevents the liquid from turning to ice. Having the liquid freeze would be almost as bad for your engine as burning would be.

Replacing or Flushing

Replacing the fluid is simply emptying the fluid that is there and putting new fluid in. Most of the time this is all that is needed. We will also check all your hoses to make sure they are in good shape. Every few years it is a good idea to do a complete flush, which makes sure all the liquid is removed. This flushing also cleans out the system and helps the fluid flow more smoothly, and then the new fluid is put in place.

How Dirty Fluid Affects Your Vehicle

We have devices to test the effectiveness of the coolant in your car and can determine if it has gone bad. Changing the fluid when the owner's manual recommends is the best policy, but it can wear out sooner or last longer depending on a lot of variables.  Basically, worn out fluid will not work as effectively, which could cause your engine to overheat. In extreme cases, if you go years without changing the fluid, it can turn to acid and eat away at the inside of your engine.
