As you drive your vehicle around Parsippany, Wayne, and Morristown, NJ, your mileage will start to add up. As it does, you will pass different service intervals that could indicate it is time to provide your vehicle with service attention. Keeping up with these intervals and regularly scheduled maintenance will help ensure your vehicle runs as smoothly as possible for as long as possible.

So, when should you have your radiator fluid changed? Our service center at Paul Miller Subaru will look to answer that question in this piece. Read on to learn more!

What Is Radiator Fluid?

Before getting to when you should have your radiator fluid changed, we first need to learn more about what radiator fluid is. Your vehicle's radiator is part of your vehicle's powertrain that is responsible for cooling your engine. As your engine runs, it becomes hot. To keep it running properly, the radiator helps keep it from overheating.

Similarly, your radiator fluid is responsible for keeping your radiator cool. This will help keep your radiator and engine running as it should.

Changing Radiator Fluid

Your radiator fluid can also be referred to as engine coolant. After a while, this fluid will become old and need to be replaced to serve its designated role. Typically, your radiator fluid will need to be changed every 24,000 to 36,000 road miles or every 2-3 years if you're driving your vehicle around 12,000 miles a year.

It's not always easy to track the time or mileage it has been since your last radiator fluid change, though. That's why it is important to look out for these symptoms that could indicate it's time for a change:

  • Vehicle Overheating
  • High-Temperature Gauge
  • Low Coolant Levels
  • Discolored Coolant

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is best practice to bring your vehicle in for attention ASAP. Doing so will help prevent the potential for any long-term and more extensive damage to your vehicle.
