Family owned and trustworthy! My wife and I had both of our cars 07′ Escalade and 07′ Mercedes S550 worked on at Delta. We saved $1000’s and are more than pleased with the work done. This is by far the BEST shop in the valley for both foreign and domestic cars!
Coolant is vital for keeping your automobile functioning efficiently. A lot of people don’t realize how important it is to change the coolant regularly, though.
Some manufacturers recommend that you flush the cooling system, and change the coolant, to a regular schedule of around 30,000 miles. Some manufacturers say that you can wait longer – or that it depends on where, how often and how, the vehicle is driven.
You may have heard of “lifetime” coolant for your automobile. While it’s true that there is such a thing as ‘long-life’ coolant, you will find that it will go off eventually. The long-life coolant does not require a lot of maintenance and it will work in hot weather and in cold weather, requiring minimal maintenance, but it will still deteriorate over time. Even if the reservoir shows that there is enough coolant in the system, and testing shows that the coolant is adequate, it is still worth doing more extensive checks. When you have driven more than 50,000 miles you should start testing the coolant, and also look at your system for signs of rust and leaks. Corrosion can damage the water pump, hoses, thermostat and radiator – and coolant can become acidic over time, so it is not only no longer protecting your system, it could be causing damage.
Flushing the coolant and replacing it with fresh long life coolant will help to protect your engine, and keep your car running efficiently for longer. Just like a regular oil change, a coolant flush could save you from costly and time-consuming auto repairs further down the road.
One common thing that surfaces when the coolant is tested is that there are contaminants in the system. These can build up and clog pipes and filters, making it harder for the coolant to do its job well. A proper, thorough system flush will remove those contaminants, and allow the fresh coolant to circulate efficiently. The coolant will lubricate the system and coat fragile parts in a corrosion-resistant layer so that the whole engine will run better for longer.
If you use your car a lot and rack up impressive mileage, then it makes sense to take it in for thorough tests. Use a hydrometer to measure freezing and boiling protection, and test the coolant with litmus strips as well to measure the acidity.
