After miles and years go by the coolant that was keeping your car from overheating eventually breaks down and gets dirty. The biggest issue is that the PH level of the coolant changes and it becomes acidic. When this happens scaling and rust deposits can build up and deteriorate essential parts of your car’s cooling system. The head gasket, water pump, radiator, and hoses are just a few areas often affected by this. To keep the inside of your motor in tip-top shape the coolant needs to be periodically flushed and refilled.
