HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU CHANGE YOUR COOLANT ?

Changing your coolant is an essential part of vehicle maintenance, but people often wonder how often it should be done. It’s hard to give a definitive answer - the exact frequency of when you should change your coolant depends on several factors. But don’t worry – we have some clues that can help you figure out when it’s time for a change.


First off, it’s important to understand what coolant does and why it needs to be changed periodically. In short, coolant is a liquid solution that helps your engine stay cool, which prevents overheating and keeps your vehicle running smoothly. Coolant stops working overtime due to the presence of contamination and other particles, this can damage the water pump and radiator by causing deposits to build up on the fins and, in extreme cases, cause the engine to overheat.


As for how frequently you should change your coolant, the answer is that it really depends on the type of vehicle you have and the type of coolant you use -so make sure you check your owner's manual for the exact interval.

Finally, there are a few signs that you should look out for that may indicate your coolant needs to be changed. If you notice your engine temperature is running hot or if you see any coolant leaks, it’s time to get a new one. You should also check your coolant level every few months and top it off if necessary.


Now that you know what to look for, you can make sure your engine stays cool and your vehicle runs smoothly. Happy driving!
