Overheating and You

We are coming into the warmer months of the year and with that it can be easier for your vehicle to overheat if it is due for a cooling system fluid service or low on coolant/antifreeze. If your vehicle is starting to run warmer than normal it would be a good idea to have a cooling system test done.

In a cooling system test they should check your vehicle for any external leaks, test the coolant/antifreeze, and pressurize the system to make sure you don't have any internal leaks.

We all want to get where we are going and the best way to do that is to take good care of your vehicle and to make sure it is properly maintained. Cooling systems and hoses should be done every 100K or 6 years. If you think about it 100,000 miles is a lot of heating and cooling of those hoses and the fluid that goes through them. If it's been awhile it might be time to have yours checked out too.
