Many people don't even know that the radiator and cooling system of a vehicle needs to be flushed. Flushing the cooling system is a necessary and neglected part of vehicle maintenance. The cost of overhauling an engine can run into thousands of dollars; automatic transmission repairs also are expensive. Cooling system failure can lead to any of these problems.
This system performs several functions: it keeps the engine running within specified temperatures; it cools the automatic transmission; and it circulates hot water through the heater.
Temperatures inside an engine can get up to 4,500 - 5,000 degrees F., enough to melt an engine block in a matter of minutes. The cooling system, most notably the radiator, prevents this.
Today's engines run much hotter than in years gone by. Added emission control systems, smaller radiators, crowded engine compartments, and smaller grill areas add to the challenge.
Mechanics will recommend that you flush the system every two years, but the folks at RADIATOR.COM recommend you flush your system every year for maximum life.
Flushing The Cooling System:
It's that simple! Good luck.
