Keeping your cooling system in good working order is essential to keeping your car running well. Coolant system failure and overheating are the most common causes of breakdowns for drivers today, and a coolant system failure can do more than leave you broken down on the side of the road—it can do permanent damage to your engine and your transmission. For this reason, it’s important to leave your car in highly capable hands, like the ones at AAMCO in Plano, Texas
Why Your Coolant System Needs Maintenance
It is recommended that your oil be replaced every three months or 3,000 miles, but many people don’t know how often their engine’s coolant fluid should be replaced. We advise your coolant be changed out and your radiator flushed about every two years. If this is overlooked, you engine could suffer greatly because:
- Coolant loses its protective ability over time
- Your radiator can corrode, leading to leaks
- Your cooling system can become clogged, leading to costlier repairs at a later date
When You Need Coolant System Maintenance
Your coolant system should be topped off when your oil is changed, and it should be flushed every two years. You should bring your car into AAMCO in Plano for a cooling system check if:
- Your Your engine overheats

- Your coolant level warning light comes on
