Radiator Service Helps Car Engine Keep Its Cool

Your car's radiator is the compartment that holds water and antifreeze to help the engine keep cool and your car performing well, summer or winter. If this cooling system malfunctions, hot temperatures can blow the gaskets, warp the aluminum heads and cause the engine to sustain costly repairs. The team at our service department at Volvo Cars of Shreveport can perform an occasional radiator flush to help keep your vehicle's engine cooling system in tip-top shape.

It's a good idea to schedule a radiator flush if the antifreeze loses its acidity and its ability to protect engine temperatures from becoming overheated. A radiator flush also helps to remove the build-up of dirt and sediment in the cooling system. Although it's not necessary to schedule an annual radiator flush, most manufacturers recommend the draining and refill of antifreeze at least every 60,000 miles. A professional radiator flush can help extend your vehicle's lifespan.
