What is a Coolant Fluid Exchange?

Your Volkswagen’s coolant requires regular replacing like other automotive fluids such as oil. When you take your Volkswagen in for a coolant exchange at a certified shop near Cinco Ranch, the technician flushes the old coolant from your car, replaces it with new coolant that meets your vehicle’s exact specifications. We’ll then safely dispose of the old coolant, so it does not present an environmental hazard.

Why Changing Your Engine Coolant is Important

If you need new coolant, you should schedule an appointment as soon as possible as driving to and from Houston with defective or contaminated coolant can cause several different problems. The first among these is performance issues such as your Volkswagen running hot or overheating, which makes driving difficult and can be dangerous. Another thing to consider is long term damage as the increased engine heat over time damages various components such as the gaskets and other key parts of your engine. Over a long enough period of time, extensive engine repair may be needed.

How Long Does Coolant Fluid Last?

Like other automotive fluids, the coolant should be replaced when needed; however, unlike oil, coolant does not have the same specifications on when a change is needed. Some manufactures suggest every five years, some every three years, and others completely different time intervals. In general, you should have your coolant replaced every 30,000 to 50,000 miles or if you have any performance issues, as outside factors can affect your Volkswagen’s coolant.

Signs Your Cooling System Need New Coolant

If your Volkswagen needs new coolant, there will be several signs during routine driving in Cypress that you should not ignore. As coolant helps regulate engine temperature, one of the most notable signs is your Volkswagen overheating. Other issues to look out for include engine noises (such as grinding), fluid leaks under or around your car, and strange odors from your engine. If you see any of these issues, you should schedule service with a certified technician to replace your coolant and check for any other maintenance needs.
