Why Coolant and Cooling Should be Important to You and Your Vehicle



At JAC La Mesa, we know our California summers can get unbearably hot. We all know how the temperatures can go well beyond 100 degrees in the middle of the summer. With that being said, it's essential to have proper coolant and cooling running correctly in your vehicle for most, if not all, of the year! We wanted to discuss coolant and cooling so you can be prepared to get it fixed before that first unbearable summer heatwave. 


First off, a well-maintained cooling system is critical for the engine of your vehicle for multiple reasons. The most important is keeping your engine operating safely and efficiently. With engine problems related to cooling, if they fail, it will lead to costly repairs. There are multiple reasons to do a pre-summer check for your cooling systems—one maintaining the hoses and connections and checking the fans and water pumps. We perform complete checks of your vehicle's cooling system to ensure everything is in tip-top shape and ready to tackle the hot summer months. Keeping your cooling system in prime condition will ensure a longer life overall for your vehicle as well as overall comfortability for you and passengers.


Another essential summer tune-up would be to check your system's coolant. Your vehicle's coolant is what keeps your car at a stable, comfortable temperature. If your automotive didn't have any coolant, then your vehicle would run the risk of overheating or freezing, depending on the outside climate. Can you understand the importance of a coolant flush now? Keeping your coolant system in top condition with the help of regular flushes is incredibly important. A coolant flush is essentially removing all the old coolant and any subsequent chemical buildups (such as rust, contaminates, and scale deposits) from your engine. Then, the entire system is filled with a new coolant, which helps the engine run smoothly once more & keeps you comfortable. The most typical engine coolant fluid needs to be flushed every two years or 30,000 miles to ensure it works at peak efficiency.
