Coolant Service at Tuffy Flint (Pierson Rd)

Flint residents' vehicles have to operate in a wide range of Michigan temperatures which requires the engine coolant to be able to perform 'no matter what.' Think for a moment about the environment where the coolant does its thing. Very hot, high pressure, corrosive...

And all the while, it has to protect the components of the cooling system from corrosion. These components are made from steel and aluminum, plastics and rubber. The coolant has to be formulated to protect against corrosion for all of these different materials. That's why vehicle manufacturer’s recommend different types of anti-freeze for our Flint, Michigan, vehicles.

There are several different 'families' of anti-freeze available to us here in Flint. Your owner's manual will tell you what kind you should use. Of course, the automotive professionals at Tuffy Flint (Pierson Rd) will know the right kind for your vehicle.
