Coolant Fluid Exchange Service

Coolant Fluid Exchange in Santa Cruz County

Coolant is cool for many reasons. With a name like a coolant, some drivers may just assume that it is only used for warmer weather to keep your car cool and from overheating. Although not technically wrong, coolant goes beyond just being cool for your car. Santa Cruz Subaru understands that our drivers want to get the most out of their car whether it be from a long road trip, camping or just having a reliable car for getting around. Our professional coolant fluid exchange service can help make sure that happens.

Checking Fluids (Coolant)

Coolant Fluid

Coolant does so many things, but mostly pertains to the engine. Is it warm? Coolant will help keep it cool. Is it suddenly winter and your car needs some help warming up? Antifreeze (still coolant) can warm it up. Coolant, otherwise knowns as antifreeze - it's job is to help ensure your vehicle can adjust to whatever the temperature. Coolant and antifreeze are the same things with names that can be used interchangeably.

Flushing and Replacing Your Coolant

The coolant fluid exchange is when we go in, dump out the old fluid and replace it with fresh, clean fluid.

When do you need a coolant fluid exchange?

It's best to always consult with your owner's manual first, or ask one of our technicians. The usual timeframe is about every 30,000 or 50,000 miles.

Signs you need new coolant:

  • Temperature gauge starts to consistently read warmer than usual.
  • Green or orange antifreeze colors start showing up underneath your car.
  • There is a grinding noise coming from your hood.

Coolant Fluid Exchange from Santa Cruz Subaru

The coolest thing about coolant is how self-sufficient it is. It is so good, that some manufacturers don't even list it as a service to have. There is a lifetime coolant that is a mix of coolant and water that can last a lifetime. However, every car's needs differ. The needs differ from coolant services schedules to the kind of coolant/antifreeze needed. Have questions? Our team at Santa Cruz Subaru is comprised of professionally trained technicians who understand the needs of each vehicle. We are more than happy to help answer any additional questions and make recommendations based on your make and model. Schedule your appointment with Santa Cruz's favorite Subaru dealership today!
