What Is An Engine Coolant (Radiator) Flush?

An engine coolant flush is a maintenance procedure that involves draining the old coolant from the radiator and engine, flushing the system with clean water or a specialized flushing agent, and then refilling it with fresh coolant. Regularly flushing your engine coolant is important for several reasons, including:

  • Preventing engine damage: Coolant contains anti-corrosion agents and lubricants that help protect the engine from corrosion and wear. Over time, these additives break down and lose their effectiveness, which can lead to engine damage.

  • Maintaining cooling system efficiency: As coolant circulates through the engine, it absorbs heat and transfers it to the radiator. If the coolant is dirty or degraded, it may not be able to absorb and transfer heat as efficiently, which can lead to overheating and engine damage.

  • Avoiding coolant leaks: Over time, coolant can become acidic and corrode the radiator and other components of the cooling system. This can cause leaks that can be difficult and expensive to repair.

When Should You Replace Engine Coolant On Your Vehicle?

In general, it is recommended that engine coolant be flushed and replaced every 2 to 5 years, or every 30,000 to 50,000 kilometers, depending on the vehicle and the type of coolant used. However, the recommended interval may vary based on the manufacturer's recommendations, driving conditions, and other factors.

In addition to regular coolant flushes, it's important to check the coolant level and condition regularly, and to address any leaks or other issues with the cooling system as soon as possible. By taking good care of your engine's cooling system, you can help ensure that your vehicle runs smoothly and reliably for years to come.



To ensure your vehicle's cooling system stays in good condition, it's essential to follow some maintenance tips, especially if you often drive on Ontario's busy roads.

  • Avoid causing your engine to overheat by driving smoothly and steadily, particularly in heavy traffic or on routes with congested areas. Overheating can lead to severe damage to your cooling system and result in costly repairs.

  • If you frequently drive on steep terrain like the hills it's essential to replace your coolant and flush the system regularly. This can help prevent any build-up or blockages that could cause issues with your cooling system.

By following these tips, you can help extend the lifespan of your vehicle's cooling system and prevent the need for significant repairs.
