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.

What does an engine coolant replacement involve?

  • 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.

Can I change my own antifreeze?

Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend an engine coolant replacement is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

What are the symptoms of a faulty 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).

How long will an engine coolant replacement take?

An engine coolant replacement usually takes around 1 hour, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

When should you change your coolant?

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.

How much does coolant fluid change cost?

On average, a typical engine coolant change costs £65, with prices ranging from £40 to £90. Ultimately, the cost of replacing the egine coolant depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement.
