Cooling

Our vehicles operate in a wide range of outside temperatures in Missouri. That's why vehicle manufacturers use testing grounds from the frozen tundra to the blistering desert. Your engine coolant must be able to perform in these extreme temperatures, even if we don't always get the extremes in St Charles, Missouri.

Coolant has to move heat away from the engine to prevent costly damage. Water does a very good job of holding heat, but it freezes at 32 degrees F, 0 degrees C.

That's why we mix anti-freeze with water - it lowers the freezing point of the coolant and raises the boiling point as well. A 50/50 blend of water and antifreeze is the usual recommendation from JC Car Care and Tire - South.

And on top of that, coolant has to protect the components of the cooling system from corrosion. Your owner's manual will tell you what kind of coolant you should use. Of course, your JC Car Care and Tire - South service representative in St Charles Missouri will know what to put in your car.

Coolant system failure is the most common mechanical problem people have. Much of that can be avoided by following factory scheduled service intervals. Check your owner's manual or ask your service advisor at JC Car Care and Tire - South for recommendations. We can also conduct a cooling system inspection to look for leaks, weak hoses or bad connections.
