Do I Need a Coolant Flush Every Time?

No — it's not necessary to flush your coolant with every change. Although some shops recommend it, a regular drain-and-fill will work well. Frequently flushing your coolant is a waste of your time and money.

That being said, we recommend following your owner's manual. If it gives a timeframe for a full flush, you should stick to what it says. For older trucks, a full flush will help keep debris out of the system, preventing rust and corrosion.

Tips for When It’s Time to Flush Coolant

Like all regular maintenance, neglect will cause poor performance. We suggest you stick to your regularly scheduled maintenance to avoid any coolant system-related issues down the line.

If it's been a while and you've neglected your truck, the following issues might mean you need a flush:

  • An overheating engine
  • You notice coolant leaking in your driveway
  • You can smell sweetness inside the vehicle
  • Your heater isn't working very well

When Should I Flush or Change Coolant?

You'll definitely want to bring in a new vehicle around the 75,000km mark. After that, coolant flushes should be done once every 50,000km — which is to say every few years, depending on your driving. But as always, we recommend you stick to your manual's guidelines for more information.
