Auto maintenance helps to keep your vehicle functioning like new. This includes routine radiator flush service. We’re highlighting the importance of scheduling a radiator flush in Pinellas County at Maserati of St. Petersburg.

What Does Your Radiator Do?

A radiator is part of your engine’s cooling system and helps to limit the excessive heat your engine produces. Coolant, which is also part of your cooling system, travels through hoses from your radiator, through the engine, and back to your radiator.

It works to absorb excess heat. Once the coolant returns to your radiator, your radiator releases the heat from the coolant to the outside air. Cool air also flows in through your radiator, which also helps keep your engine from overheating.

What Type of Maintenance Does the Radiator Need?

Radiator flush service includes flushing the existing coolant from your system and replacing it with fresh coolant. This helps to remove the dust and debris from your system.

Service also includes an inspection of your parts to ensure there are no leaks or other issues. We recommend scheduling a radiator flush every two years or 25,000 miles.
