It's important you don't neglect your vehicles cooling system maintenance. Neglecting coolant flush services could result in in a blow head gasket, cracked engine block, overheated engine or breakdown. Let's start by understand how the coolant system works. The radiator controls temperature by circulating coolant through the hoses, heater core and water pump in the engine as fuel combustion creates heat. If you run low on coolant or have a clog you have the risk your engine overheating.

Coolant and antifreeze are typically interchangeable terms since both have antifreeze properties. Depending on climate, the ratio of coolant/antifreeze and water is adjusted. The typical mix is 50/50.
