What does an engine coolant replacement in Greater Manchester involve?

  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the engine coolant.

  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.

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 in Greater Manchester?

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.

Is it ok to drive with low coolant?

No, it is not safe to drive with low engine coolant. Doing so can cause the engine to overheat, which can lead to serious and very expensive engine damage.

How long does coolant last in a car?

Coolant can last anywhere from 2 years to 5 years. However, it is recommended that you change your coolant at least every 5 years, if not sooner, to help prevent rust and corrosion.

How do I know if I need a coolant flush?

If you find that your temperature gauge warning light is illuminating and your engine is frequently overheating, it is possible that you may need to get a coolant flush by a qualified mechanic. It is dangerous to drive any further when the temperature warning light comes on as it could cause catastrophic damage to the engine parts.

Is antifreeze and coolant the same thing?

Engine coolant is sometimes also called anti-freeze, but they are not technically the same thing. Antifreeze is a more concentrated ethelyne glycol-based substance that is mixed with water to keep the radiator from freezing in the cold and overheating in extreme heat. This mixture is called coolant.

Is a bad engine coolant an MOT failure?

The quality of engine coolant is not usually checked during an MOT test but it is good practice to have it topped up and refilled to help ensure the engine can be cooled efficiently. However, remember that leaking coolant that creates a pool on the floor within 5 minutes that’s more than 75mm in diameter will fail an MOT test.

How much does a coolant flush in Greater Manchester cost?

The cost to do a coolant flush ranges from about £70 to £150 depending on the make and model of the car and coolant used.
