“Very happy with Pervais and the work he carried out. Would be more than happy to use him again. Gave good advice on problems unrelated to that which he was booked to fix. 5 star.”

PAUL

22nd April 2019
“Pervaiz took on the job on Good Friday, which in itself was very kind. He arrived when he said he would and was thorough. He carried out a more tricky than usual thermostat replacement as it was deep inside the engine of my ford focus. He was friendly and talked me through what he had done and made absolutely sure it worked correctly. Hi am a very happy customer. I will definitely be using the service again if I find myself in need of a mechanic in future.“

“Lee was great. Bang on time, very friendly, great work. Quick to respond to messages - absolutely recommend!”

NICO

Jeep Cherokee • Coolant/antifreeze drain & refill

13th February 2017
“Lee was very good fast and informative, although I had expressed to your controllers that I needed a new bearing but was unsure which one so could you please ensure the mechanic is able to perform a bearing change, when Lee arrived he did the service but only ran a diagnostic check on the bearing as he did not have the tools to perform the bearing change so I was charged for you the mechanic to tell me what I had already told you (that I needed a new bearing). Rather disappointed that your control representative can not understand plain English when I asked for someone to CHANGE my faulty bearing, not tell me what I already knew. Also Lee told me that he would be emailing me with a list of advisories but I have not yet received it .“

Want to learn more about Engine Coolant replacements?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does the Engine Coolant do?

The engine coolant circulates through the car's cooling system, it serves to keep the engine at an optimal temperature for an efficient combustion cycle and prevents it from overheating. The coolant runs from the reservoir, through the radiator, the water pump and onto the thermostat to be circulated through the engine back to the reservoir where the process begins anew.

How do you know there is something wrong with the Engine Coolant?

  • When the 'Maintenance' light is on.
  • When the 'Engine Temperature' light is on.
  • When the engine runs at a higher temperature than usual (engine overheats).

When should you consider an Engine Coolant replacement?

Without a steady supply of cool engine coolant flowing through the cooling system there is a risk that the car will overheat, in some cases the engine can then suffer expensive internal damage. Debris like scale or rust shed by the internals of the system can cause an inadequate flow of engine coolant through the system. Eventually, the system can clog up entirely.

Should you experience problems with the engine coolant supply, then it is advisable to have the cooling system inspected and, if necessary, have the coolant replaced. Seeing that engine coolant is generally prone to deteriorate over time it should always be replaced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during an Engine Coolant replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the engine coolant and the cooling system.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the engine coolant.
  • If recommended by manufacturer, mechanic will first add coolant cleaner to the coolant and run the engine.
  • Mechanic will then drain the cooling system.
  • Mechanic will top up the system with water and drain the system twice.
  • Mechanic will, finally, top up the system with fresh engine coolant.
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will inspect the cooling system again for any leaks and run the engine.

How much does an Engine Coolant replacement cost?

The cost of replacing the egine coolant depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your engine coolant replaced by ClickMechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page!
