Basic Cooling System Maintenance Checklist for Summer

Your cooling system is vital in keeping your engine operating properly and in good working order. Summer is the perfect time to do a check and address any issues before they become problems. Check the fluid levels on your radiator and overflow or reserve. Drain and flush the radiator then refill with water and new coolant. In warmer climates you can get away with doing this every 18 months to 2 years. Check the hoses and caps on the radiator and reserve or overflow tank. Visually inspect the radiator tank and reserve or overflow for leaks.
