What Does Radiator Fluid Do?

Radiator fluid is commonly known as an antifreeze coolant that is used to help keep your car engine cool. In warm weather, car engines run hot, and without something to alleviate excessive heat generated by the engine, can cause massive problems. Always make sure that your vehicle has the correct amount and type of radiator fluid to help keep your car engine cooler.

You should frequently check the levels of coolant in your car’s radiator and cooling system to ensure everything is in order.

When we fire up the engine to go on a drive, we expect to get where we need to go. Sometimes, we are on our way to work to contribute to our company's success and provide for our families. Other times, we are traveling to meet with family and friends to celebrate milestones and birthdays, comfort the grieving at a memorial service, or cherish the love of two special people at a wedding. Still other times, we are just simply going out to eat, stocking up on groceries, or going on vacation. Regardless of where you are heading, you never expect disaster. We see people stuck on the side of the road all the time, never believing it will happen to them. 

What do you do if it does happen to you?

It’s a bright sunny morning, and you are finishing your last sip of coffee before heading to work. When you get into your car and turn the keys to start the ignition, the forbidden clicking noise begins. The engine doesn’t turn on as you grip the steering wheel tightly with your head pressed on the horn. Your car is dead. 

Suspension issues can be difficult to diagnose. Anything from bad or worn shocks, struts, springs, tie rods, or ball joints can ultimately cause costly damages to your vehicle. If these problems are ignored, they can make your car extremely unsafe to drive. 

Your car is not just a machine that takes you from point A to point B, it is an extension of who you are. Vehicle owners customize every part they can to ensure that it is personalized. You spend as much time with it as almost any member of your family. Your car is the last thing you see before work, and the first thing you see at the end of a long day. You talk to it, clean it, maintain it, and expect it to keep you and your family safe if something goes wrong. 

You want to make sure you give it everything it needs. Drivers tend to think of gasoline as something to keep a vehicle hydrated and moving.
