The Role of Engine Coolant

Your vehicle's engine produces a lot of heat, which requires cooling to prevent damage to itself and other engine components. Hot climates can make regulating the engine temperature even more difficult. Coolant circulates through the engine to regulate the engine's temperature to prevent the engine from overheating. When the coolant becomes contaminated, it loses its ability to control the motor's temperature properly. This can lead to problems.

Why Coolant Fluid Needs to Be Changed

All of the fluids in a vehicle occasionally need to be changed. This is because, over time, they can become contaminated and degrade. Coolant fluid succumbs to excessive heat and pressure and becomes contaminated as it helps prevent corrosion. Replacing the coolant ensures that the engine is protected. It's also possible to develop leaks which cause coolant to drip out. Lowering levels of coolant put the engine at risk. To understand how often your vehicle needs a coolant fluid exchange, refer to your vehicle's owner's manual. While some newer vehicles are produced that never have to have their fluids changed, most still do. Also, keep a watch for any potential leaks. If you see drops of coolant on your driveway, it's time to have a certified technician check it.

Delaying a Coolant Fluid Exchange

The coolant fluid plays a significant role in regulating the engine's temperature. When the fluid becomes dirty, or the level is low, the engine can overheat. This situation causes other issues. Rust can build up and clog the radiator. Higher heat levels affect the o-rings, head gaskets, and cylinder block. Eventually, the engine will seize up. This is a serious level of internal damage.
