Cooling System Maintenance

We recommend you get a seven point preventative cooling system maintenance check performed at least once every two years. Consult your vehicle owner's manual for specific guidelines.

The cooling system inspection identifies areas that need attention, and consists of the following:

  • A visual inspection of all cooling system components, including belts and hoses

  • A radiator cap pressure test to check the recommended system pressure level

  • A thermostat check for proper opening and closing.

  • A pressure test to identify external leaks to the cooling system parts including the radiator, water pump, engine coolant passages, radiator, heater hoses and heater core

  • An internal leak test to check for combustion gas leakage into the cooling system
