Only the fully concentrated coolants carry these factory approvals. It's the installers responsibility to take the necessary time to thoroughly flush the cooling system. Read the warnings on the coolant coolant bottle regarding improper use being harmful or fatal. First, it keeps things from getting too hot, but also from any water from freezing. Run the car until the cooling fan comes on. Run the car until the cooling fan comes on.
Excellent frost protection in severe winter climates. Owners who are currently using G12 coolant may wish to upgrade to the latest G13 purple coolant the next time they thoroughly flush the cooling system i. This hose goes from the cylinder head to the heater core. Then, it is important to replicate the cooling system to a like new factory condition. If you have different makes of cars in your household, you can service them all with the same coolant. The advanced profile package prevents scale build up and deposits in the cooling system thereby improving cooling system circulation. Even though the latest G13 coolant is backward compatible, Blauparts recommends thoroughly flushing your cooling system, when upgrading to a different type of coolant.
Reinstall the coolant tank hose s. Silicate additives make G13 ideal for long-term use in all modern radiators, especially those constructed from aluminium, cast iron and magnesium alloys. G11 or G12 as well as in the owner's manual under the coolant section. Tap water varies in pH, mineral, and chemical content and depending on these factors can adversely affect your new coolant and the cooling system. However, note the sediment or contamination of the G12 coolant that was removed when we thoroughly flushed the system. Ravenol's unique formulation and molecular profile improves cooling system flow for guaranteed heat transition away from vital internal engine components, especially the cylinder head. That is why automakers subject antifreeze to lengthy corrosion and cavitation tests.
Most owners who are currently using G12+ or G12++ may wish to upgrade to the latest G13 coolant the next time they thoroughly flush the cooling system i. All of this eventually causes serious engine problems i. Thoroughly flushing the cooling system involves the engine block, radiator, heater core, and hoses. Also note the color, which will be either pink or purple. If your coolant is green or brown in color thoroughly flush your cooling system immediately! I've used it for years and it works as advertised. Poor quality coolant contaminates the system and eats away at metal, rubber, and plastic components.
That is why automakers subject antifreeze to lengthy corrosion and cavitation tests. It's also good to note the color of your coolant e. We feel that changing your fluids is one of the most important preventive maintenance routines. If in doubt, follow the mixing recommendations in the chart above or flush the system and fill using the correct or preferred coolant spec. Wolf has developed a dedicated product range for the lubrication of hybrid vehicles. The previous owner had every service record from the date of sale, regular oil changes, preventative maintenance, and took really good care of the car.
Even when using approved coolant, years of continuous circulating through the engine causes a measure of sediment to buildup. The combination of chemical additives contained in coolant, responsible for retaining alkalinity and inhibiting corrosion within the engine's cooling system, over time become depleted. Your cooling system should be free of any and all contaminants! You likely know how often you should change your oil, since basically every oil commercial will tell you, but how often should you get your coolant checked and flushed? This ensure the purity of your cooling system. It is not intended to replace the factory manual. The quality of an antifreeze is no longer just determined by the antifreeze effect which automatically exists in an ethylene-glycol-based product , which is critical for the quality of a coolant, but also the rust protection. This molecular film formulation guarantees great heat transition. It has been noted that due to time constraints, inconvenience, and profit, many individuals, mechanics, and repair shops do not take the extra time needed to thoroughly flush the entire cooling system.
Coolant, also known as antifreeze, serves a few purposes in your engine. This likely means that some other type of coolant was added, and it has compromised the integrity of the cooling system. Reinstall the coolant tank hose s. Draining alone can leave as much as 30 to 50% of the old coolant in the engine block. Undiluted boiling point of 175° C. Blauparts purchased a used 1997 Audi A4 with approximately 90,000 miles, which had 1 previous owner.
It's usually because the installer neglected to follow this important step. Ravenol coolant was specifically engineered for advanced high performance European engine designs and metal alloys. Only use tap water to flush the entire cooling system. That gel resulting from incompatible coolants mixed can clog things and may cause engine damage. The advanced profile package prevents scale build up and deposits in the cooling system thereby improving cooling system circulation. Tap water varies in pH, mineral, and chemical content and depending on these factors can adversely affect your new coolant and the cooling system.
Thoroughly flushing the coolant involves the engine block, radiator, heater core, and hoses. Phosphate, borate, silicate, nitrite, amine free. To drain the heater core you'll need to remove the hose on the coolant flange or transfer pipe located on the back side of the engine. Simply draining is not enough. Prices, specifications, manufacturers, availability, and special offers are subject to change without notice. This hose connects to the steel tubing that runs along side the engine block to the back of the engine. Over time, weak or contaminated coolant incorrect pH can cause serious engine problems i.

This molecular film formulation guarantees great heat transition. Start the car and air bleed the cooling system as outlined in the factory manual. You'll probably need a flash light to find it. We recommend having an A.
