Avoiding Cooling System Failure due to Coolant Issues

From time to time we see issues with cooling system components. One potential cause is incorrect coolant or coolants becoming mixed due to an inefficient flush. 

We recently saw a VW Golf with this problem and the entire system had gummed up very quickly putting the car at increased risk of overheating. These problems are easily avoided by performing a thorough cooling system flush. The video below shows this process step by step. 


For longer service life, MEYLE recommends always flushing the cooling system before installing a new water pump. The MEYLE typical water pump claims and causes leaflet has some great tips on fixing and maintaining the cooling system and can be viewed here

Having the right tools for the job makes this process so much easier, If you haven't got one of our excellent Air Boy Cooling System Flushers yet, get in touch and order one today, you'll be glad you did.
