HEAT RADIATOR FLUSH - CHICAGO, IL

Get A Quality Heat Radiator Flush Service

Hire United Tires for a heat radiator service in your area.

A vehicle’s radiator is important to prevent your car from overheating. Likewise, a heat radiator flush is basically an inexpensive procedure that is recommended at least once a year or as suggested by your owner’s manual.

A heat radiator flush is different from simply draining the radiator. The former requires pushing up to 5 gallons of coolant liquid through the radiator system. The old coolant liquid will be “flushed” out from the cooling system, including the contaminants and other particles that have built up.

The latter, on the other hand, will only eliminate about half of the total anti-freeze / coolant liquid from the radiator system. Aside from that, majority of the anti-freeze’s impurities will be left behind, and most probably the new and fresher coolant will be mixed with the old one. In effect, the benefits of a good-quality anti-freeeze / coolant to your vehicle may not be achieved.

As for the question whether a heat radiator flush is really necessary, the answer is yes. Doing so will not only clean your radiator system, but also help your car perform at its best. Among benefits of having a routine heat radiator flush are the following:

  • It helps remove contaminant and particles, including rust and scale deposits.
  • It helps lubricate the water pump and increase its life span at the same time.
  • It is a way to inspect the overall condition of the radiator system.
  • It helps protect against rust and any other build-up.

How much does it cost for a heat radiator flush?

Depending on your vehicle brand, make, model, and age, as well as the type of coolant and the location where you will perform the radiator flush, you should prepare around $40 to $200 for a heat radiator flush. On the other hand, a DIY flush kit can cost around $10 to $50 depending on the package inclusion.

How to do a heat radiator flush

Here are the steps on how to do a heat radiator flush:

  • Make sure the car engine is completely cool, or risk getting burned. Better yet, start working on it when your engine is cooled for at least two hours.
  • Raise the front of your car using a jack so you can work underneath the radiator more easily.
  • Once you have found the radiator, make sure that is in good condition. Look for any signs of rust, corrosion, or leaks on pipes and hoses.
  • Put a drainage pan under the radiator’s drainage valve, which is usually attached to the bottom of one of the radiator tanks.
  • Drain the fluid from the radiator. Make sure you are wearing work gloves because the coolant can be toxic. Have the drained fluid taken for recycling.
  • Flush the radiator with water using a garden hose or a radiator flush cleaning solution available in automotive shops. Remember, flush the radiator and NOT drain it as mentioned earlier.
  • Add new coolant to the brim. Ideally, it should be a mix of 50% distilled water and 50% anti-freeze. Make sure to use the right coolant for your car.
