Properly Flushing Your Cooling System

Why make sure your cooling system is clean?

A clean and clear cooling system is critical to normal engine operation. By keeping your cooling system in tip-top shape with Bar’s, you will be assured you will receive the most from your vehicle. When the cooling system is dirty or clogged with contaminates, it is likely that the engine will run hotter and develop problems quicker than expected under normal operational conditions. Running an engine hot will (1) advance the degradation of the lubricants (thermal breakdown) and accelerate oxidation, (2) dry out seals prematurely and (3) even crack metal engine and cooling system components. Moreover, vehicle owners that choose to run their vehicle with water as the coolant will experience drastic degradation of the cooling system components.
