No matter where you are in Elgin, Mt. Prospect or Arlington Heights, keeping your car, truck, minivan or SUV cool is crucial for its reliability and longevity. Just as you need air conditioning to stay cool throughout your journeys, your engine needs coolant fluid to disperse the heat it generates.
Engine coolant loses its effectiveness as it ages, so it’s important to exchange this fluid on a regular basis. Our coolant fluid exchange service at Zeigler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram’s service department in Schaumburg, IL ensures that your vehicle keeps its cool no matter where the open road takes you.
As engine coolant circulates through the various passageways hidden in the engine block, it’s also carrying away excess heat that could otherwise harm your engine. This heat is carried into the radiator where the heat can be dispersed properly, preventing your engine from overheating. However, that’s not the only way that engine coolant keeps your engine within safe operating temperatures. When outdoor temperatures plummet, your coolant fluid is also formulated to prevent freezing, which could also have a harmful impact on your engine’s overall operation.
Engine coolant isn’t meant to last forever. Over time, harmful contaminants can cause your coolant fluid to deteriorate, making it less capable of dispersing engine heat as well as making it more prone to freezing under extreme cold. The coolant fluid can also turn acidic and corrode crucial cooling system components, including your water pump, thermostat, and radiator.
During service we will replace your old, contaminated fluid with fresh OEM-approved fluid, ensuring your cooling system remains healthy and capable of keeping your engine cool, even under the most demanding of driving conditions.
