When should I flush the coolant in my vehicle?

We recommend flushing your coolant every 2 years.

Like most fluids , coolant can build up contaminants and collect debris over time. It can cause corrosion,  rust or other debris that you do not want in your car’s radiator or engine. A coolant flush resolves this problem – it’s basically a blood transfusion for your cooling system.

Besides removing the used antifreeze from your radiator, other benefits to flushing your coolant is removing the rust that has built up on the radiator as well as lubricating and lengthening the life of your water pump. Additionally, if you use high quality coolants it tends to last longer and give better protection.
