- Why does the radiator need to be flushed when changing my coolant?
A radiator flush is important to neutralise any old coolant remaining in the system. This procedure also removes contaminants and debris in the system.
- Can I perform a radiator flush myself?
You can perform a descaling engine flush with product supplied by Natrad. Having this inexpensive service done by a Natrad specialist provides many advantages.
Once the treatment is complete, a Natrad specialist will also carry out a water power flush to expel chemicals and debris left in the system. A water flush should always be performed before new coolant is added. The old coolant and engine descaler will also be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.
- How often should you perform an engine descaling flush?
Whenever coolant is changed or any part of the vehicle cooling system is replaced, you should use an engine descaler. Using descaler will remove debris in the cooling system and prevent contamination which can cause early failure of the new part.
Engine coolant needs to be changed every 3-8 years, depending on manufacturer recommendation and the operating environment of the vehicle.
- How do I dispose of engine fluids and descaler?
Old coolant and engine descaler must be disposed of in a safe manner. If you replace the coolant yourself, it must be disposed of in a safe manner.
You can take the waste fluid to your local workshop for safe disposal or find out how to dispose of hazardous liquid in your local council. DO NOT flush it down the drain.
If you have the descaling engine flush done at your local Natrad, we will take care of fluid disposal.
