Coolant Service at American Brake Centers Inc.

Posted June 2, 2024 6:26 AM

Louisville residents' vehicles have to operate in a wide range of KY temperatures which requires the engine coolant to be able to perform 'no matter what.' Think for a moment about the environment where the coolant does its thing. Very hot, high pressure, corrosive...

And all the while, it has to protect the components of the cooling system from corrosion. These components are made from steel and aluminum, plastics and rubber. The coolant has to be formulated to protect against corrosion for all of these different materials. That's why vehicle manufacturer’s recommend different types of anti-freeze for our Louisville, KY, vehicles.

There are several different 'families' of anti-freeze available to us here in Louisville. Your owner's manual will tell you what kind you should use. Of course, the automotive professionals at American Brake Centers Inc. will know the right kind for your vehicle.

It's important to stay on top of this because coolant system failure is the most common mechanical problem people have here in Louisville, KY. Regular service needs to be done at American Brake Centers Inc. to avoid failures and also to keep your warranty in place.

While the specifics of the service required may vary from vehicle to vehicle, your friendly and knowledgeable American Brake Centers Inc. service advisor will know what to do. You'll be advised to replace the coolant at specified intervals.

Some recommend periodic coolant system flushes. A flush adds a cleaning step to the fluid replacement process. Again, check to see what your owner’s manual recommends.

I appreciate that Scott gave me the perfect time to drop it off. He also called me with the price and the time he could have it ready, which was very accurate for pickup time. He was asked to fix a backyard mechanics mistake and did a great job. I wish I had gone with the American Brake Center before thinking cheaper was better. Do yourself a favor and use a professional.??????????

This place is wonderful! I called them for help to check my brakes that had just been changed but still weren't working correctly and they were nice enough to squeeze me in right at opening when they had a full day scheduled and only took about 30 mins to get my issue fixed and had me on my way. I can't thank them enough for what they did! If I ever need anything else done, I'm glad I know a place I can trust. Thank you guys!
