coolant cap

Coolant flushes are an important maintenance procedure, necessary for keeping your truck reliably on the road. At Autoworks in Ithaca, we know that coolant flushes are a key aspect of preventative maintenance that goes a long way.

Your coolant has an important job to perform. Without it, your truck would overheat within minutes of you starting it, likely destroying your engine in the process. Coolant constantly circulates the engine, keeping it at exactly the right temperature for efficient and dependable use. Keeping your coolant levels topped off is only one aspect of coolant care, however.

Coolant can expire or become contaminated, leaving your truck at risk in freezing temperatures, increasing corrosion and buildup, and decreasing cooling efficiency. Diesel trucks are particularly prone to coolant contamination, by nature of their design. Exhaust fumes and oil can make their way into the cooling system, promoting sludge and corrosion which block thin passageways in the radiator, thermostat, and heater core, causing a disruption in the flow of coolant. Besides unnecessarily causing costly and time-consuming damage to cooling components, your truck is at risk of overheating and severe engine damage if passageways become clogged.

Flushing the coolant also gives your technicians a chance to inspect the old coolant, which to a trained eye can provide a great deal of insight into the running condition of your truck, allowing issues to be diagnosed before they get out of hand. Flushing clears the system of any buildup or debris trapped in the engine and radiator. Fresh fluid and peace of mind are just a step away.

No matter your truck repair or maintenance needs, our professional technicians have the equipment and knowledge necessary to get the job done. For the best fleet truck service shop in Ithaca, call or stop by Autoworks today.
