Coolant Service in Peoria, AZ

Answering Your Questions About Coolant Service at Larry H. Miller Toyota Peoria

Does the Coolant in My Toyota Need to be Replaced, Like an Oil Change?

The coolant, or "antifreeze" as its commonly known, does in fact deteriorate over time and can even become more acidic over time. This usually happens when you drive up to 50,000 miles or more; however, if you purchased a Toyota truck, or another vehicle with towing capabilities from Larry H. Miller Toyota Peoria, your coolant could expire or be used up faster as these activities tend to heat up the engine faster.

What is "Lifetime" Coolant?

Most auto parts stores, including ours in Peoria, carry lifetime, or long-life, coolant which is comprised of equal parts anti-freeze and water, so it will last a bit longer than conventional coolant. This type of coolant can provide consistent protection against extreme hot and cool temperatures and is more environmentally-friendly.

How Often Does the Coolant in my Car Need to be Replaced?

For older and pre-owned Toyota models in Peoria AZ, a coolant flush service is recommended from Larry H. Miller Toyota Peoria once every two years or 30,00 miles (whichever occurs first). However, with newer models and lifetime coolant, you may not need a coolant flush until about after 50,000 miles or so. You should still check your coolant reservoir under the hood to ensure it does not require filling as more frequent commuting, towing, or driving during extreme temperature can cause your Toyota to rush through coolant faster.

What Are Some Signs my Coolant Needs Service?

When coolant expires, it often loses its ability to do its job, which manifest itself through more frequent engine overheating, stalls, or shutdowns. However, as the coolant expires it can become more acidic, which can lead to excess corrosion and damage areas such as the radiator or water pump.
