Coolant Service for Your Car
With a full coolant system flush combined with routine inspections, you’ll experience greater peace of mind on the road. Let’s face it; the last thing you want to do is sit on the side of the road on a hot day with your hood up and fluid running out of your car.
That’s why you want to regularly check your fluid levels and make sure you come in routinely for checkups. We’ll inspect the entire system, including your belts and hoses.
Cooling System Pressure Test
A properly running cooling system circulates your coolant through the radiator and engine. During this process, the heat levels are reduced. If it doesn’t function properly, the temperature of your engine rises and creates damage. That’s when the heads, or top end of the engine begin to warp and gaskets blow.
We routinely perform full cooling system pressure test to look for leaks in the system as well as check your radiator cap. We always ensure that the system holds pressure for at least two minutes.
If no external leaks are found but the cooling system doesn’t maintain pressure, the next step is to evaluate the car for a failed head gasket. A failed head gasket allows the coolant into the oil passages or cylinders, where it doesn’t belong!
All of these are expensive repairs that can be prevented by caring for your cooling system and having regular maintenance with JP Auto & Fleet Services. These issues didn’t just happen overnight.
Signs Your Vehicle Needs a Coolant Flush

- Coolant begins to pool under your vehicle
- Scaling or rust is seen in the coolant
- Smell like warm maple syrup from under the hood
- Visible steam coming out from under the hood
