Having your vehicle serviced on a routine basis is one of the best things you can do to keep it in optimal condition. Your vehicle's cooling system is important because it's what keeps your car from overheating. A cooling system has a water pump, radiator, radiator cap, radiator hoses, and thermostat.

The radiator circulates coolant that is necessary to keep your engine from overheating. It's important to flush coolant from the radiator because coolant will break down with time and lose its effectiveness. It can also cause rust and dirt to clog the radiator, which leads to overheating.

During a coolant radiator flush, the old coolant is drained and replaced with new coolant. How often should you get a radiator flush? It's best to follow the recommendations in your owner's manual or ask an associate at our Lithia Toyota of Billings service center. Be sure to have your cooling system checked if your vehicle overheats shortly after it's started, or you notice a puddle of coolant under your vehicle.
