The Role of Coolant in Everyday Driving

We put the power of our vehicles’ engines to work for us, moving people and products around the country and even through Torrance, CA. At Hillside Auto Repair, we’ve seen the damage that can result when that engine power is not maintained at its best. The metal and plastics in the engine, and the oil that lubricates it, can only take so much. In extreme cases comes engine failure, often related to problems with the coolant. The engine cooling system, including the engine coolant, manages some of that heat, transferring it from the engine to the atmosphere. In the winter, some of that heat even keeps you warm inside your car. If engine coolant in your Acura or Alfa Romeo isn’t working properly, the engine might not maintain proper temperature, which can affect performance and fuel economy.

Critical Engine Coolant Inspection

For the most part, engine coolant doesn’t “wear out,” but it can happen. Mechanical problems can lead to a loss of coolant, which can then trigger major problems. Hillside Auto Repair suggests checking your coolant level and condition every six months. Low engine coolant can cause overheating and engine damage. Used coolant can turn acidic— even newer long-life coolant— as it attacks the metal, plastic and rubber parts of your engine cooling system. Regular coolant inspection is a key step to maintaining your engine for the long haul. Pay us a visit; we serve all drivers in Torrance and across LOS ANGELES .
