What Does Coolant Do and Why Is It Important?
Coolant is just as every bit of important as the other oils and fluids pumping throughout your truck—as a mixture of water and antifreeze that circulates through your truck's engine, coolant is the frontier of regulating engine temperature and preventing overheating and poor engine performance. Coolant also helps protect the engine from corrosion, provides lubrication to the water pump, and prevents the formation of mineral deposits. That’s why we suggest to all our customers to enlist in regular maintenance of the coolant system as it’ll help ensure the longevity and performance of your truck.
Signs Your Truck Needs Coolant System Repairs
Over thousands and thousands of miles on the highway, your truck’s coolant will begin to deteriorate, resulting in engine damage and reduced performance. If you notice any of the following signs, it's time to bring your truck to our experts for coolant system repairs:
- Engine overheating
- Low coolant level
- Sweet-smelling exhaust
- Discolored coolant
- Rust or corrosion in the radiator or hoses
We suggest you get a coolant flush every 30,00 to 60,00 miles to keep your fleet’s performance high and prevent unnecessary damage to your trucks’ components.
