A radiator flush is a fairly affordable procedure that can be performed once in a year or as per the recommendations are given in your owner’s manuals and on top of that it is highly recommended as well as beneficial for your vehicle’s cooling system. Price may vary from garage to garage. In addition to that, there is a significant difference between a simple draining and a flush of the radiator; hence it’s important that one should know the difference between those services.
Drain v/s Flush
Flushing is the process that pushes 4 to 5 gallons of anti-freeze through the system and flushes out all of the old anti-freeze including contaminants that have built up in your cooling system. A flush ensures that all of the old anti-freeze is removed from the cooling system.
However, with draining it is possible that the new anti-freeze will be mixing with the old, as draining process of the radiator only removes about 50% of the total anti-freeze in the system and leaves the majority of contaminants that have built up.
Risks of Poor Engine Cooling
Many drivers are unaware of the problems caused due to lack of proper engine cooling system. Hence in this article, we would like to alert those risks so that one can schedule flushes and maintain their cooling system to save themselves from many expensive repairs. Poor functionality of the cooling system can be caused due to various reasons and one of the most common factors is a buildup of rust and sediment, which causes costly damage and that, can also lead you to complete engine failure.
Simple awareness can save a driver from tons of expenses and like we discussed earlier that it is important to know the difference between a Radiator Flush and a Radiator Drain. In simple words a thorough ‘flush’ removes it all, replacing it with new antifreeze and an anti-corrosion conditioner and a ‘draining’ only removes half of the cooling system’s antifreeze.
Core benefits of having your radiator flushed:
- Radiator Flush Removes Rust and Scale Deposit–Once your vehicle ages then over time it builds rust and scale deposits within the radiator. A flush is a process that helps your vehicle to remove these deposits which then get pushed out with the old anti-freeze. It is important since these build-ups can cause overheating or even damage your radiator.
- Radiator FlushLubricates the Water Pump – The life-span of the water pump can be increased due to the additives available in the coolant, as it lubricates the vehicle’s water pump.
- Radiator FlushRemoves Contaminants – A flush completely removes the old anti-freeze from the system, which means that any contaminants that have made their way into the system will be flushed out, leaving your cooling system ultra clean. The additives in the coolant can develop corrosive particles, as over time it loses important anti-corrosive properties and a radiator flush will remove all those corrosive particles from the system. In addition to that, the new anti-freeze will have additives that help to prevent rust and buildup of corrosive particles. It will also prevent foaming in the system which is responsible for smooth and efficient functionality.
