Your engine runs by taking in fuel and air, giving them a catalytic spark, and turning the ensuing explosion into torque to turn your car’s wheels. This is known as combustion, and it can generate a lot of heat rather quickly. This heat is dissipated through your coolant system, and the coolant fluid needs changing to make sure it can do its job as efficiently as possible. When you need a coolant fluid exchange, Volkswagen of New Port Richey has you covered.
Coolant fluid both cools your engine and protects the coolant system’s components from corrosion and other problems. Over time, the coolant fluid’s chemicals that work to protect the cooling system can degrade, especially when they’re getting heated up and cooled down all the time. Depending on your car, the coolant fluid can also leak out or evaporate, so a coolant fluid exchange sets all that back to 100%. New fluid has intact protections and the cooling capacity necessary for taking the heat off of your engine.
Most experts will tell you that your coolant fluid will last about 2 years or 30,000 miles. After that, it can get contaminated, dirty, or degraded, and that reduces its efficiency in cooling your engine. However, you should always have your coolant checked and exchanged if you’re having overheating problems with your engine because coolant fluid can degrade faster or slower depending on how you use your car and the environment around you. Coolant fluid exchanges are for when your vehicle needs that coolant refreshed, so we recommend you get yours checked as soon as possible.
