Fluid Changes

 

There are several fluids that you need to be aware of in your car or light truck, and we give a brief over-view of all (below). But for now, let's focus on your cars coolant system:

Heating & Cooling System Services

Failure of the heating and cooling system is the #1 cause of roadside breakdown, which is why heating and cooling system service is such an important part of maintaining your vehicle, especially here in Shelby Michigan.

Your vehicle's engine generates a lot of heat. That heat can be beneficial because it warms up the engine to operating temperature and warms the oil so that it can circulate easily to lubricate vital engine parts. At the same time, if the heating system is not kept under control the engine can overheat and be severely damaged. If you notice that your vehicle is beginning to overheat, it's very important to have the heating and cooling systems checked as soon as possible to help avoid some of the worst engine damage and repairs.

We recommend having your heating and cooling system inspected regularly to help identify any possible problems before a component fails. Parts such as the radiator, hoses, cooling fans, water pumps and thermostat can wear out or begin to develop leaks. Bring your car or truck into Auto Medics of Shelby, or schedule an
appointment online, to have one of our expert technicians inspect your entire heating and cooling system to make sure there are no problems.

 

 

Many vehicle manufacturers recommend having the engine coolant/antifreeze replaced periodically. Our Coolant System Flush service can take care of this by completely flushing the system and refilling it with fresh coolant.

Coolant System Flush

Inspect system and pressure test for leaks
Flush system & recover old antifreeze
Refill with required amount of coolant (up to 2 gallons)


If your engine overheats, pull over immediately and have your vehicle towed. Catastrophic damage will occur if you continue to drive with an over heating engine.

 

 

Car Fluid Maintenance

Your vehicle has a lot of different fluids running through it to keep it working. Many car fluids need to be replaced regularly, to avoid consequences. Here, we give a brief overview of many different car fluids.
 

WHY SHOULD YOU FLUSH AND REFILL YOUR VEHICLE'S ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM?


Neglecting your vehicle's cooling system can and will lead to a progressive failure of engine components such as water pumps, internal engine gaskets, freeze plugs and aluminum parts deterioration. Also heater core and radiator leaks can occur. These failures can be costly to repair and can result in being stranded!!!

You see, after about 2 years the lubricants and additives in the antifreeze start to loose their effectiveness due to constant changes in engine temperature and electrical forces. A chemical reaction between engine coolant flowing over different metals within the engine cooling system and antifreeze will begin to react with the electricity from the numerous electrical components. This reciting will force a change in the pH balance of the coolant and turns it into an acidic state which in turn corrodes the engine metals and cooling system components which causes premature parts failures, gasket leaks and costly repairs.
