Cooling system service intervals
Now that you see clearly why and how a cooling system must be serviced, you are probably asking how often it should be done. Well, it depends on many criteria. First we look at the manufacturer’s recommendations. We also go further and look up history on your type of vehicle to see what other professionals have found. We then ask about your driving habits. Once we have all of that information we can tell you how frequently you should have a cooling system service.
