Why are radiators flushes important?
Your cooling system can build up contaminants of rust and debris over time, which can cause corrosion in the cooling system. The system requires a flush which removes these contaminants by forcing water and cleanser through it. Simply draining the system will leave contaminants in the system. Radiators flushes will help remove any build up in the radiator and lengthen the life of your water pump.
How often should I have a rad flush?
Generally, radiator flushes are required every three to five years, sooner if you notice any debris, rust or corrosion. Check you owner’s manual for the rad flush requirements of your vehicle.
What can happen if I don’t do regular radiator flushes?
You can expect corrosion, sediment, and other debris to build up in the cooling system. Eventually, this can lead to damage in the form of overheating, leaks, water pump and head gasket failure.
