Cool your engine with proper system maintenance

Sponsored content Feb 12, 2017 Hamilton Spectator

Putney's Brake & Alignment Service in Hamilton knows how heated drivers can get when their cooling system blows. Providing preventative maintenance services for automotive cooling systems is their way of helping you keep your cool when your engine’s running hot.

The primary function of your cooling system is to ensure your high-tech engine keeps running at an optimum temperature to help maximize performance. Just like a computer with a faulty fan, an engine with a faulty cooling system can overheat and break down. Unattended coolant leaks, blockages and electrical issues involving your cooling system can lead to serious engine damage and extremely costly repairs. Having your cooling system serviced regularly by trained technicians using proper equipment is the best way to diagnose internal and external leaks and coolant flow problems.

Coolant (a.k.a. antifreeze) is specially formulated to keep your engine running smoothly in a variety of environmental conditions. In Canada, this means extreme weather, from hot summer highway driving to freezing-cold winter starts. Without the proper type or adequate level of coolant, the metal parts in your engine could expand, resulting in a damaging engine seizure. Next to repairing body damage from a major car accident, repairing a seized engine is one of the largest expenses a vehicle owner can incur. A full engine replacement is even more costly. The smartest move is preventing such expenses by booking an appointment for a cooling system checkup.

Many new car manufacturers demand owners maintain a regular maintenance schedule to keep their warranty valid. Having such servicing completed by one of Putney’s highly trained, fully licensed automotive technicians is a good way to ensure proper compliance with manufacturer expectations. Changing the coolant regularly is the simplest form of maintenance. Your coolant contains additives designed to protect the engine and keep the fluid from becoming corrosive. These additives are depleted over time, which could lead to damage to your radiator or other system components.
