Coolant/Antifreeze Service in Jupiter, FL

Posted September 11, 2022 8:32 AM

Jupiter auto owners may know that most automotive failures in Jupiter, FL, are tire related, but do you know the second most common cause of vehicle failure? Nope, it's not teenagers. It is the coolant system. But if you take good care of your vehicle coolant system, it will take good care of you.

A vehicle's engine creates a lot of heat - so much heat, that if it is not properly cooled, the engine can lock up, resulting in massive damage and repair bills. But when everything is working right, your vehicle engine operates at the proper temperature and all is well. Without antifreeze in your cooling system, the water could freeze and cause vehicle engine damage. This could be very expensive, not to mention inconvenient.

The right mix of water and antifreeze protects the engine against damage from freezing and overheating. Antifreeze also protects the coolant system against corrosion that could cause the system to fail. The thing to remember is this: coolant system failure is very common, but it is also very easy to prevent. Your Jupiter service center knows the manufacturer's recommendations and can tell you when the coolant needs to be changed. At East Coast Automotive Services in Jupiter, we can perform a coolant system service.

Jupiter auto owners can add water or antifreeze to the bottle themselves but should be careful. First, you never want to open the radiator pressure cap. The steam could severely burn you. Second, try to get to East Coast Automotive Services in Jupiter immediately if your coolant is low. If that is not possible, follow the directions in your owner's manual. Third, remember that you need a proper mixture of water and antifreeze or you will damage your engine. If you make an emergency addition to your cooling system, follow-up with a service advisor at East Coast Automotive Services where they can make necessary corrections. Fourth, not all cars use the same type of antifreeze.

Jupiter technicians will need to check their vehicles owner's manual to make sure they use the right kind. Mixing antifreeze types or using the wrong kind of antifreeze may void the manufacturer’s warranty on your vehicle cooling system. If you're not sure, ask your friendly and knowledgeable service advisor at East Coast Automotive Services for guidance.

Good shop. Took my Audi Q7 in for an overheating issue and they fixed it in a couple days. They were honest and fair with the price.
