The primary function of the engine cooling system is to reduce the core temperature by transporting the heat away from the engine. This is accomplished by circulating the antifreeze (coolant) through hoses supporting the components where heat is generated, thus moving the heat away from the engine and toward the radiator, where the temperature is lowered.

  • Pre Inspection: Before we start to drain and clean the coolant system, we perform a pre-inspection by checking radiator hoses and the radiator for leaks.
  • Drain & Clean: If everything looks fine from the pre-inspection, we start to drain the old antifreeze out of the coolant system, allowing us to complete the service.
  • Refill & Post Inspection: After all of the old antifreeze is drained, new coolant is then added, and a final post-inspection is completed.
  • Cooling System Flush: Our coolant fluid exchange machine pushes new coolant into the radiator, while at the same time, forcing old, dirty coolant out.

To reduce the risk of the engine overheating and freezing, a sufficient amount of antifreeze and water must be present in the cooling system at all times. This is not the only function of the coolant system, however, it also slows the corrosion of the components as well.

The majority of our coolant service customers come from Brighton, Hartland, Howell, Pinckney, Whitmore Lake, Hamburg, along with, South Lyon, New Hudson, Wixom, Milford, Highland, and Clyde. Kovach's generates repeat business, simply because they have so much to offer their customers.
