Top 7 Signs That Your Car Needs A Coolant Flush

Caring for your cars coolant system should be part of your regularly scheduled car maintenence routine. The coolant system in your car is the key to how well your vehicle operates in extreme heat, extreme cold and everything in between. Here are the top 7 signs your vehicle may be in need of a coolant flush sooner rather than later.

Vehicle Running Hot And Overheating

If your temperature gauge is running high or close to the danger zone while driving you might want to schedule that coolant flush before you have a bigger problem to deal with.

Steaming Hood

If you notice steam coming from under the hood or hear a hissing sound escaping from under the hood, you should schedule a coolant flush

Coolant Leak or Discoloration

If you start noticing a puddle of liquid under your car that has a greenish tint or a sweet smell it means you have a coolant leak and you should schedule a coolant flush as soon as possible. Also if you notice a discoloration in your coolant you want to get any dirt or debris flushed as soon as possible.

Coolant Level Low

If your low coolant warning light comes on or you notice that your cooloant level is low this should be a hint to schedule a coolant flush.

Cracks or Leaks

If you notice any cracks or leaks in any hosesd or belts near the radiator you want to have them fixed as soon as possible.

Blowing Cold Air

If your car is blowing cold air when you have the heat turned on this is a sign you want to get that coolant flush soon.

Maple Syrup Smell

While most of us like the smell of pancakes with syrup, this is not something you want to smell coming from your car. This sweet smell coming from your car could be a sign it is in need of a coolant flush.

Wonderful, quick service. My low tire pressure light came on while driving to work downtown. I was able to make an appointment to drop off my car at lunch and picked it up after work. No charge for checking my tires and the employees were extremely friendly and efficient even though they were busy.

Have been going to Lex Brodie's for tire and alignment work for over 40 years and they have been outstanding. Sure, I've experienced a few "quirks" with them, but that also happens with any other best other shops taking care of them in good order.

Yelp: Jack and the girls at the front took really good care of me and my mom. They are professional and probably one of the most honest mechanic shops I have been to. You can tell they really want to make their customers happy and give them the most fair price they can. Jack and the sales girl I talked to broke down all the costs before starting the work so I knew exactly what we were paying for. Great staff, patient, kind, and honest. This place treats you like family and wants you to leave happy.
