Henry’s Hints: Protecting Your Radiator

Oil Can Henry's Radiator ServiceCold winter temperatures can be hard on your vehicle and the fluids, such as antifreeze/coolant, that help it operate.
Antifreeze/coolant flows through your vehicle’s radiator and engine to protect against both freezing temperatures and engine heat.
Over time, deposits can build-up and block the flow of antifreeze/coolant to your engine. That can lead to overheating, freezing, rust, corrosion — even a breakdown.
AAA recommends that you “check coolant level in the overflow tank when the engine is cold. If the level is low, add a 50/50 solution of coolant and water to maintain the necessary antifreeze capability. “
AAA also recommends that you test the antifreeze protection level at least once a year. Oil Can Henry’s makes that easy. Our Famous 18-Point Full-Service Oil Change includes a check of your vehicle’s vital fluids, including the antifreeze/coolant, and a complimentary top-up of those fluids.
