Get your cooling system checked before Boiling Over.

With warmer weather upon us, it is time to make sure your cooling system is in peak operating condition. The last thing you want is to be stuck on the side of the road all hot under the collar!

A lot of people think that keeping the radiator topped up is all that needs to be done to keep your car from overheating and your cooling system working properly. This is not the case.

The role of the cooling system is to dissipate the heat, therefore reducing the stress placed on the engine. This heat is produced when chemical energy (fuel) is converted into the energy that drives the mechanical elements of the engine to power the car.

Topping Up Coolant
Something to remember is that you shouldn’t mix different types of coolant. Topping up with just any old coolant can cause you problems down the track! Modern vehicles have very specific requirements and your local Repco Authorised Service centre can advise you on the right coolant for your car.
