The "lifeblood" of the engine compartment. Without antifreeze, your vehicle's engine will surely fail. Key tips to having an engine that is performing as it should:
- Always use quality antifreeze – We believe in using the factory antifreeze in your vehicle and not an aftermarket brand. Aftermarkets will save $ today, but will not outperform. This could be said about all aftermarket parts v Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. Aftermarket fluids could cause failures as they are often not exact replacements to the OEM specifications. As cars get smarter, they can recognize the difference in fluids and could cause down the road warranty issues.
- OEM radiators are 100% the only way to go. Why would you want to risk the life of the engine over saving a few dollars? It is not worth it and WE advise our customers never to put aftermarket or used parts on your vehicle. Especially in a collision experience as aftermarket parts will never bring the crashworthiness back to the engineering specs of the vehicle. During a mechanical repair aftermarket parts will save a little today, but typically the aftermarket parts will not outperform the OEM. Why would you want to install items that may cause additional maintenance?
- If done correctly you should only need to service the system 4 times in the vehicles lifetime.
