You love driving your Honda and want to keep it in excellent working condition. Making sure your vehicle has the proper level of coolant is crucial in keeping your vehicle from overheating. Here’s what you need to know about the coolant fluid exchange process in Hagerstown, MD.
Coolant is a vital part of your engine’s operating process. Also referred to as anti-freeze, this liquid keeps the radiator from overheating, which can lead to costly repairs if the fluid level gets too low. One common misconception is that coolant isn’t important during the winter months. The truth is that your engine still needs this liquid at all times to ensure your vehicle runs smoothly. A coolant fluid exchange is considered a routine part of vehicle maintenance. However, it isn’t required as often as other tasks and sometimes might be overlooked. That’s why it is important to bring your vehicle to Hagerstown Honda for regularly scheduled appointments so that it doesn’t get forgotten.
There are several key symptoms to look out for when diagnosing a coolant fluid problem. While it can sometimes be easy to mix these up with other mechanical problems, the most common include:
It’s important to note that flushing and exchanging coolant is more than just ‘topping off’ the fluid levels. If you notice any of the above symptoms, you might have a leak that needs to be addressed by a certified Honda technician at Hagerstown Honda.
The process of a coolant fluid exchange and flush is quite routine and simple. Your existing coolant is drained and flushed from your vehicle by one of our trained technicians. From there, new fluid is added. The system is also inspected for any leaks or other associated problems.
If your vehicle is running without coolant problems, the coolant exchange process is handled by the approximate number of miles you’ve driven. For example, Honda generally recommends that this service be done every 30,000 miles.
