Coolant Fluid Exchange
Keeping Your Engine Cool with a Coolant Fluid Exchange
Of all the things you need to keep an eye on when it comes to your vehicle, the engine temperature is one of the most important aspects. Engines create a lot of heat during the combustion process, but too much heat can cause serious damage to critical engine components. The best way to make sure your engine doesn’t overheat is to make sure you’ve got good coolant in it. The tough part about coolant fluid exchange services is that you don’t need to have them done very often. Because of this, a lot of people don’t get their coolant fluid changed when they should. The good news is, keeping up with coolant fluid exchange services is as simple as taking your Ford to Roesch Ford for auto service in Elmhurst, IL.
The Importance of Engine Temperatures
When you think about the fact that your engine can power such a heavy vehicle, it is pretty amazing. Engines create this power through the process of combustion and by using a lot of large, moving parts. However, both of those things tend to create a lot of heat, which can damage your engine if it gets too bad. Coolant fluid is designed to keep your engine cool so you don’t have to worry about damaging your engine. Just like everything else in your vehicle, though, coolant fluid doesn’t last forever. Over time, the fluid becomes less effective and you may notice your engine temperature running a bit higher than normal. Most mechanics recommend changing your coolant fluid once every 30,000 miles or so, although you should have your coolant checked any time your vehicle is running too hot. We only use genuine parts and fluids for all of our services at Roesch Ford.
