Radiator Antifreeze/Coolant Service
Have you ever felt helpless while stranded on the side of the road with your vehicle hood up and your vehicle steaming? Has your vehicle ever not started in the dead of winter because the fluid in your engine was frozen? Not fun. That’s why Jiffy Lube® offers Radiator Antifreeze Coolant Flush to help you avoid engine radiator problems and Leave Worry Behind®.
It’s all a Bunch of Hot Air … and Fluid.
Does your engine run hotter than normal just after starting it? Does the temperature slowly creep higher and higher as you drive down the road? Do you detect an odor that’s a little like boiling maple syrup or see green or orange fluid pooling beneath your vehicle? If you do, it's time to visit the highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube®.
A properly functioning cooling system circulates antifreeze/coolant through the engine and radiator, helping reduce heat levels produced by your vehicle's engine. When your vehicle’s cooling system isn’t functioning properly, the temperature of your engine can get hot enough to damage itself. Heads can warp. Gaskets can blow. Your engine can fail. And all of those can be costly repairs. Getting an inspection and antifreeze/coolant flush and fill can save you a lot of money and time spent on the side of the road.
Cooling System Flush and Fill
An antifreeze/coolant flush and fill at regular intervals can help prevent overheating, freezing and premature cooling-system corrosion. A Jiffy Lube® coolant service starts with an examination of your radiator and engine cooling system. Then, old antifreeze/coolant is removed from your radiator and replaced with new antifreeze/coolant per your vehicle manufacturer's recommendations.
Please note: Not all Jiffy Lube® service centers offer Cooling System Services. Please call ahead to ensure the service is available.
