Radiator Flush

No Appointment Required

With Alberta’s unpredictable and extreme temperature swings, protecting your vehicle’s vital components from potential harm is crucial. One such component that plays an essential role in maintaining the optimal performance of your vehicle is the cooling system. A malfunctioning cooling system can result in expensive repairs and damage to the engine and heating system. At Econolube, our Radiator Flush service is designed to ensure the inner components of your engine system are well-maintained, keeping you on the road and saving you from financial headaches.

The Importance of a Radiator Flush

When your vehicle’s cooling system is not working optimally, broad temperature changes, especially those experienced in Alberta’s climate, can cause significant harm to the expensive internal components of your engine and heating system.

Over time, the cooling system accumulates a build-up of corrosion, deposits, and contaminants that hinder its performance. This build-up can reduce coolant flow, inefficient heat transfer, and even coolant leakage. Regular cooling system maintenance, including radiator flushes, is essential to prevent such issues and extend the lifespan of your vehicle.

Our Cooling System Service

At Econolube, we prioritize the maintenance and well-being of your vehicle. That’s why our diligent EconoLube technicians thoroughly inspect your coolant’s acidity level during every full-service oil change.

If our technicians determine that your cooling system requires service, such as a radiator flush, they will promptly inform you and recommend the service.

The Radiator Flush Process

When your vehicle requires a radiator flush, our technicians employ a comprehensive procedure to ensure the cooling system is effectively cleaned and restored to optimal functioning. Here’s what you can expect:

Cleaner Application

First, we run a high-quality cleaner through the entire cooling system, including the radiator, heater core, and hoses. This cleaner is specifically formulated to break down and eliminate the build-up of corrosion, deposits, and contaminants that accumulate over time. We thoroughly clean the system and ensure it is ready for the next critical steps.

Flushing and Refilling

Once the cleaner has effectively dissolved the build-up, we flush the entire cooling system with a new antifreeze and water mixture. This process eliminates debris and ensures a clean and well-functioning cooling system.

Our technicians are trained to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and use the appropriate antifreeze and water mixture to maintain the optimal balance for your vehicle’s specific needs.

Pressure Check

After flushing and refilling the radiator, our technicians carefully inspected the hoses and cap to maintain proper pressure. Any signs of wear or damage are addressed, ensuring the longevity and reliability of your vehicle’s cooling system.

Benefits of Radiator Flush Service

Regular radiator flush service offers numerous benefits and is essential to maintaining your vehicle’s optimal performance. Some of the key advantages include:

  1. Improved Cooling System Efficiency: By removing the build-up of corrosion, deposits, and contaminants, a radiator flush enhances the efficiency of your vehicle’s cooling system. This ensures proper heat transfer and prevents overheating, protecting the engine and other vital components from potential damage.
  2. Prevention of Costly Repairs: Addressing cooling system issues promptly through regular maintenance, such as radiator flushes, can save you from costly repairs. By preventing damage and ensuring the longevity of your vehicle’s internal components, you can avoid the financial burden of major repairs or replacements.
  3. Extended Lifespan of the Cooling System: Regular radiator flushes help extend the lifespan of your vehicle’s cooling system. By eliminating the build-up of contaminants, the system can operate optimally for a more extended period, ensuring your vehicle stays on the road without any coolant-related issues.
  4. Consistent Performance in Extreme Conditions: With Alberta’s extreme temperature swings, maintaining a healthy cooling system is crucial. By regularly flushing the radiator, you can trust that your vehicle will be able to handle both freezing winters and scorching summers, providing you with peace of mind regardless of the weather.

    Conclusion

    At Econolube, we understand the importance of protecting your vehicle’s vital components from the harsh realities of Alberta’s extreme temperature swings. Our Radiator Flush service is designed to ensure the inner components of your engine system remain well-maintained, saving you from potentially costly repairs and keeping you on the road.

    Trust our EconoLube technicians to perform a thorough radiator flush using high-quality cleaners and coolant mixtures to restore your cooling system’s efficiency and longevity.

My wife and I have been bringing our vehicle here for oil changes, we recently brought it in for a brake service. The mechanics were knowledgeable and the staff were friendly. Shuttle service was efficient and well communicated with text notifications. The owner was also running the front of the mechanic shop as it is a family run business. We had a great conversation and he was very friendly. Would recommend their services - support local!

My thanks to Kurt at the 200 183 highway 16a location in spruce grove. I discovered a leaking oil filter that was in stalled by my chev dealership. I was heading out hunting at the time but apparently that dealership didn’t have the 5 min to help me out. I pulled into the the econolube, explained the situation and “bam” Done at very reasonable price. Not to mention the pleasant attitude and willingness to help. Thanks again Kurt. Sorry if the spelling of your name is incorrect.

My car needed some repairs, and based on my past excellent experiences with Econolube for oil changes and tire service, I booked it in with them for mechanical service this time. I've had 2 appointments over the last 2 weeks to get everything fixed, and they've been fantastic to deal with. Booking the appointments has been super easy, communication with Reuben before and during the service has been great, and pricing is incredibly reasonable. They do not try to upsell on things that don't actually need to be done, and they were willing to work with me on a timeline to get everything fixed, including swapping over winter tires today. They even offered a shuttle service to get me back home after dropping my vehicle off. Thank you Paul, Reuben, and Vanessa for an excellent experience! I will definitely be back for any future mechanic needs.

By far the nicest most helpful staff out there. Owner was on the floor getting in just as well as everyone else, highly recommend this family run business. Edit, on my 3rd different vehicle and countless time of coming to these guys and I stand behind my previous statement. I’d review these guys and give top ratings every single time If google would let me. Cannot recommend enough, use local it is infinitely better
