What Does Coolant Fluid Do?
In short, coolant fluid is what's responsible for keeping your engine from overheating. This fluid is a precise mix of water and antifreeze, and the water pump pushes it through the cooling system. It absorbs excess heat from the engine as it moves through coolant lines. After picking up heat, it heads to the radiator. As it spreads out and air passes over it, the coolant fluid cools down, and is ready to go through the whole cycle once more.
Why Does My Chevrolet Vehicle Need a Coolant Exchange?
Over time, the coolant in your Chevy can begin to break down and become less effective at picking up heat. When this happens, your engine runs the risk of overheating, which can cause massive damage.
How Often Should I Bring My Chevy In for a Coolant Fluid Exchange?
At Ourisman Chevrolet of Rockville, we recommend having your coolant fluid exchanged at least every 50,000 miles. However, if you're using your Chevy for towing or other severe driving, it's probably a good idea to have it changed more often.
