Protect Your Engine from Damage with Coolant Exchange Maintenance

At Gary Crossley Ford, we understand that your vehicle’s engine is the heart of your vehicle. One critical component of engine health is coolant, which is responsible for regulating your engine’s temperature. Over time, the coolant can become contaminated with debris and lose its effectiveness, which is why we recommend a coolant exchange as part of regular vehicle maintenance. 

What is Engine Coolant?

Engine coolant, also known as antifreeze, is responsible for regulating the temperature of your engine and preventing it from overheating or freezing. Over time, the coolant can become contaminated with dirt, debris, and rust, which can lead to decreased performance and potential damage to your engine. A coolant exchange helps to remove the old, contaminated coolant and replace it with clean, fresh coolant, providing numerous benefits for your vehicle.

What Does Engine Coolant Do?

First and foremost, a coolant exchange can help regulate your engine’s temperature, preventing it from overheating or freezing. This can improve your engine’s performance and help prevent costly repairs down the road. Additionally, fresh coolant can help protect against rust and corrosion, extending the life of your engine. 

A coolant exchange also provides an opportunity for our experienced technicians to inspect the cooling system for any signs of wear and tear or damage. Catching any issues early can help prevent costly repairs and ensure your engine is running smoothly. 

How Should You Replace Your Engine Coolant?

At Gary Crossley Ford, we recommend a coolant exchange every 30,000 miles or two years, whichever comes first. It’s important to note that neglecting to replace the coolant can lead to decreased engine performance, potential damage to your engine, and even a complete engine failure.
