What does antifreeze/coolant do?

Much like you, your car or truck’s engine needs to be hydrated while running, especially in extreme weather. In order for your engine to maintain the desired operating temperature the cooling system needs to redistribute heat away from the engine. This is accomplished by circulating coolant from the engine and through the radiator.

Over time your antifreeze/coolant will start to break down from everyday usage and will stop protecting your cooling system properly. This could cause:

  • Major engine damage
  • Damage to the radiator
  • Damage to the heater core
  • Damage to cooling system components
  • Corrosion problems

  • How do I know I need a coolant exchange?

    There are a number of factors that could determine if your vehicle needs it’s antifreeze/coolant replaced:

    • Doesn’t pass freeze/boiling point and pH test
    • Is contaminated with rust or other abnormal corrosives

    Be sure to consult your vehicle owner’s manual for a maintenance schedule or stop by Sears Auto Center and have our experts check and test the condition of your coolant.

  • Know your cooling system.

    The fluid used to cool the engine must have a very low freezing point and a high boiling point, as well as a quality corrosion inhibitor additive package. This will help keep your engine from overheating to avoid corrosion problems.
