Radiator Maintenance: As Valuable as Routine Oil Changes

When most people think of vehicle maintenance, the first thing that usually comes to mind is changing the oil or rotating the tires. Many car owners probably do not think much about maintaining their radiators, although they should. Radiator maintenance is just as important to the health of an automobile as oil changes. Here are some helpful tips from the Fred Lavery Audi service team for radiator maintenance!

Make sure your radiator has plenty of fluid at all times, especially in warm weather environments. You should use fluids that are a mix of 50 percent water and 50 percent antifreeze. Make sure that your radiator cap remains tight. A tight radiator cap maintains the proper pressure in your car's coolant chamber. Finally, have one of our automotive technicians flush out your radiator at least twice a year.
