Cooling System failure is one of the leading causes of mechanical breakdown. Over time, your vehicles coolant can degrade, losing its ability to protect system components from rust, corrosion and scale deposits. These deposits can build up in your vehicle's radiator, water pump, heater core and hoses, restricting flow and reducing the effectiveness of the system. Traditional "Drain and Fill" service can leave as much as 50% of the contaminated coolant behind. Over time, overheating, leaks, pump damage and possible system failure can occur, causing costly repairs.
One of our experienced technicians, using a specially designed machine, will perform a coolant exchange service that is able to remove the old coolant from all areas of the system. This process allows a complete exchange leaving less old coolant to contaminate the new. First, a MOC Cooling System Cleaner is added to the old coolant and circulated throughout the entire system, suspending contaminants. The machine is then attached to the vehicle's cooling system and uses a pumping action to flush the entire system. Next, the old coolant is extracted from all areas of the system while new coolant is added. A MOC conditioner is then added to fortify the cooling-system against corrosion and pump water.
