Don't Forget About Your Coolant!

February 4th, 2019

Extra Mile Car Tip:

This Dodge Durango I recently repaired had a badly corroded heater core that was leaking coolant into the passenger compartment of the vehicle. As you can see the entire dash needed to be removed to accomplish this costly repair.

You can prevent harmful corrosion in your cooling system by having your coolant changed at the manufacturer’s recommended intervals found in your owners manual. Most modern coolant is rated for at least 100,00 miles of service.

If it’s time to change your coolant, give Extra Mile Mobile Garage a call and I’ll come to you. (509) 919-6222

Check Your Air Filter!

Extra Mile Car Tip: 

Have you noticed a decrease in air flow through your heating and air conditioning ducts? Is the air blowing on your face less than fresh? You could have a cabin air filter that looks like this one I changed today. Most people don't realize all the air that passes through your dash vents is filtered through a cabin air filter that sets in the duct work inlet under the dash. It’s out of sight, out of mind, and often neglected. If you've never replaced your cabin air filter it may be long overdue.
