MOBILE COOLING SYSTEM DRAIN AND FILL AT YOUR HOME OR OFFICE

You need to bleed the air out of the cooling system in your car. Air pockets - or hot spots - are dangerous; they can overheat, crack, or warp any part of the engine where the air is trapped. Usually, replacing the coolant or servicing the cooling system in your vehicle can lead to hot spots in the system. But air may also enter the system through the coolant reservoir from time to time on some vehicle models. Wrench provides cooling system drain and fill estimate, and then our mobile mechanics will come to you, at your home or office.

WHAT IS COOLING SYSTEM DRAIN AND FILL?

A coolant flush, also referred to as a cooling system service or radiator flush, is the process of adding a cleaner to the cooling system to eliminate sediment or rust. The system is then flushed thoroughly while new antifreeze and a conditioner to protect against corrosion are added. A flush differs from topping off the coolant because harmful contaminants are flushed out of the cooling system completely while new, clean fluid is added.

HOW IS COOLING SYSTEM DRAIN AND FILL DONE?

  1. Locate the Radiator Cap
  2. Remove the Radiator Cap
  3. Draining the Coolant
  4. Flushing the System
  5. Refill the Radiator with Coolant
  6. Reinstall the radiator cap
  7. Test-drive your car and see if the temperature stays within the normal parameters.
