Coolant Flush / Radiator Flush Service

Rust, scale, and harmful residues only need time and negligence in order to build up in a vehicular cooling system and traditional methods of draining the radiator simply cannot clean the system properly, nor remove all of the old coolant.

So, what’s the issue?

If the old residue and fluid is completely removed, it will simply contaminate your new coolant, causing engine clogs and overheating.  In due time, these affects the lifespan of many of your working parts, such as the heater core, water pump, and thermostat.

It is a surprisingly common problem – did you know that contaminated coolants are the second biggest cause of breakdowns in North America according to the Highway Transportation Board?

At Mobil 1 Lube Express Fort St John, we offer a radiator flush that will thoroughly clean your system – and won’t leave you stranded on the roadside with an overheated vehicle.  Our service is completed using environmentally-friendly chemicals.

  • Add a flush additive to the old coolant to loosen contaminants and kick-start the deep clean
  • Advanced exchange techniques flush the system in just 15 minutes
  • Remove rust and corrosion in system
  • Add new coolant along with conditioning additive that protects cooling system form future wear

This simple process is quick and allows the engine to run cooler and more efficient while preventing heat damage to other parts of your engine.

Mobil 1 Lube Express Fort St John recommends that a radiator flush be undertaken every 5 to 7 years or every 120,000 to 200,000 km.
