Here’s why you should take coolant flushes seriously

Coolant flushes are important for all vehicles. They involve removing dust, rust and grime that build up over time so that they don’t contribute to the overheating of the engine and damaging the cooling system. Additionally, refreshing the coolant helps keep the cooling system from rusting and needing to be replaced prematurely. Another big reason to have the coolant flushed is that old coolant and anti-freeze wears down and is unable to perform as best it can, so replacing it helps contribute to the long-term health of the radiator and cooling system.
