Yardley, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/05/2018 -- Big Oak Citgo, a gasoline service station, recently published a blog describing the importance of receiving a cooling system service at recommended intervals.
This family-owned and operated station encourages drivers to be aware of when it's time to change their car's coolant, which is a mixture of antifreeze and water. The main reason to change coolant is to replenish additives in the antifreeze, which can deplete over time. Neglecting to maintain a car's cooling system can threaten an engine's longevity and result in costly repairs.
Drivers can obtain coolant change intervals by checking their car's maintenance schedule. Intervals are based on either mileage or time. Most coolant change intervals fall between two and five years. There are many different antifreeze formulations, each specific to a particular new car manufacturer, and types should not be switched or blended.
The blog gives more detail regarding what coolant is, why it should be changed, and when service is due.
A cooling system service consists of coolant replacement, a visual inspection of the cooling system, a coolant fan operation test, and a thermostat operation test. Big Oak Citgo offers cooling system services as well as all car maintenance items for drivers who live in Morrisville, PA, and free check engine light scans in Levittown, PA, and surrounding areas.
