COMMON COOLING CONTAMINATES
and how we deal with them
An automotive cooling system needs to be
clean, free flowing, efficient, and leak free. It can fail to meet this criteria
in many ways, especially when it is contaminated. In the "old
days" all we had to worry about was rust. Today's newer cars bring newer
problems. The most common forms of contamination are:
- Electrolysis is an invisible silent killer
of cooling systems. Hard to see, hard to measure (well, not really), hard to
fix (unless you know how..). Read more here.
- Rust is a naturally occurring phenomena in nature,
but not acceptable in coolant. Easy to prevent, hard to get out. Read
- Dex-Cool is an extended life coolant,
but can fall
apart and cause all sorts of trouble. Learn more about Dex-Cool and service procedures
designed to deal with the disasters left behind from it's use.
- Oil may well be one of the toughest problems.
Finding the cause can be tricky, dealing with the clean up can be treacherous,
and getting all the oil out can be time consuming.
Each form of contamination brings it's
own problems and has it's own unique set of processes that are formulated
to resolve the contaminates. A thorough flushing using special compounds allows
us to obtain the the desired result .
