Protect your vehicle’s engine from overheating or freezing with proper levels of coolant (aka anti-freeze). Overtime, the coolant’s efficacy can degrade and lose its protective properties, even causing the radiator to rust and corrode. It’s essential to get the coolant fluid changed out once a year to avoid build-ups of corrosive, harmful materials. Most drivers know it’s recommended that a vehicle’s oil should be changed at regular intervals. Drivers typically don’t realize, however, about the proper intervals for changing their vehicle’s other vital fluids. For the cooling system, check your owner’s manual to see the recommended interval for changing the coolant in your vehicle, but you’ll want to come to AAMCO now if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Your vehicle has recently overheated
- Your coolant or temperature light comes on
- Your temperature gauge reads higher or lower than normal
- Your heater does not work
