Engine Cooling Maintenance, while in some cases is quick and easy, there are certain aspects of it that can require a little planning if you want to make life easy, and your finances in good health.
Phoenix is unforgiving when it comes to heat, and your engine is very much the same way.
Engine Cooling Maintenance
That’s why here at Curt’s Auto Repair, we’ve taken a little extra time to explain exactly what a vehicle needs to stay rock solid and cool, especially during the intense summers that Arizona brings to the table.
Almost every driver knows it by sight, but few have a good understanding of how to keep it healthy and extend its life as long as possible. In fact, there are only a few things that should be kept in mind.
Keep an eye on these parts of your cooling system:
- Engine coolant should be replaced every 3-4 years.
- A good quality radiator cap helps to make sure that no sediment forms in the radiator.
- Inspect water pumps on a regular basis to prevent catastrophic break downs because some water pumps are prone to failure, although most last pretty well.
- Check your coolant hoses because there is scalding hot water being run through these hoses every minute you are driving.
Beat The Heat By Keeping An Eye On These Components
Here is a quick rundown of some of the components that need a watchful eye if you and your wallet are to beat the heat.
Engine coolant should be replaced often.
First off, the engine coolant should be replaced every 3-4 year to make sure that no sediment forms in the radiator and a good quality radiator cap should be installed.
Vehicle water pumps are known for their longevity
More often than not, your water pump is hidden behind a mass of other important components. Luckily, these hardy little things are known for their longevity, but if ever you have an opportunity get at it, it is important to assess its condition and find out if it is better to replace it now (and eliminate any nasty surprises), or leave it alone and hope for the best.
Scalding hot water runs through the coolant hoses in your car
