Cooling System Service at Premier Hyundai of Seaside

As you drive down the interstate and highways between San Jose, Seaside, and Pacific Grove, you’ll want to know that your vehicle is reliable and won’t leave you stranded. One of the most important systems for your engine is the cooling system. The service center at Premier Hyundai of Seaside can service your cooling system and ensure it keeps working to cool your engine.

What Your Vehicle’s Cooling System Does

The most important job of your cooling system is to keep the engine from overheating. It circulates a mixture of water and coolant around the engine when it’s running. In cold weather, the system also prevents the components from freezing.

The cooling system is made up of a water pump, thermostat, fans, belts, hoses, and more. When these parts start to fail, your system could stop working and allow the engine to get too hot. Regular service will help prevent further damage to your systems.

Signs That You Need Service for Your Cooling System

The most obvious sign that something is wrong with your system is when the engine overheats. You can also tell if the temperature gauge starts reading high. Another indication is when you see green or orange antifreeze on the ground under your vehicle. These are the two most common colors, though it can come in other colors.

You may start to smell maple syrup around your car. Unless you’re parked outside a diner for breakfast, that smell is probably coming from the antifreeze that is leaking onto the engine.

You shouldn’t wait until you have problems to have your cooling system serviced. Our team at Premier Hyundai of Seaside will perform an inspection and let you know if you have components that need to be replaced.

What’s Included in a Cooling System Service?

When you bring your vehicle to Premier Hyundai of Seaside for cooling system service, we’ll perform an inspection. We look for leaks or cracks in the hoses or belts that indicate it will start leaking soon. We’ll check for any worn parts and test the pressure in your cooling system.

We can flush your cooling system and remove the old coolant, replacing it with fresh. If we find any issues, we’ll provide you with a written estimate on the cost of replacement with genuine OEM parts. We’ll also let you know if the repair is an emergency or if it can be completed with your next visit.

Your owner’s manual will provide a recommendation on how often to flush your system. It can be between 30,000 miles and 120,000 miles. You can also come in and have your coolant tested, which will let us know if it needs to be flushed.

Antifreeze is the component that your engine needs. Coolant is a mixture of antifreeze and water. Your vehicle requires antifreeze and not just water to keep everything cool.
