What is a Coolant Flush Service?
Your vehicle’s engine has a optimum temperature range where it likes to run in order to give you peak performance. That’s where your cooling system comes in. Internal combustion engines such as yours develop immense heat during the process of generating power. The primary role of your cooling system is to dissipate enough of the heat so that your engine does not overheat.
So in the summertime your cooling system cools your engine. However, in the wintertime when the temperatures drop to subzero your cooling system will actually help warm up your engine. As mechanical parts will wear much faster when they are cold, your cooling system circulates the warmed water throughout the engine compartments. This circulating warm water is a welcome function as it provides the basis for the hot air generated from your heater.
The coolant in your cooling system is also used to lubricate your vehicle’s water pump.
Why do we recommend a Coolant Flush Service?
Your cooling system is subjected to extremes of heat and constantly circulating around moving and stationary parts. This will eventually cause your coolant to deteriorate. It will accumulate scale, rust and corroded materials. Unfortunately the result will be a decreased ability to dissipate the heat. This could lead to serious damage to your cooling system.
What happens when we perform a Coolant Flush Service?
Your Car Craft professional will use a TerraCool Flush Machine and TerraClean combination to flush your cooling system. Once the old, worn out and deteriorated coolant has been flushed out it will be replaced with fresh coolant. The TerraClean is a cooling system treatment that will provide extra protection. It helps to prevent rust and corrosion. It also inhibits formation of debris and deposits.
The fact is your engine needs a cooling system that is capable of doing its job. Talk to our Car Craft professionals so we can help you protect your vehicle with a Coolant Flush Service.
“I went to Car Craft a few years ago BECAUSE I was looking for a car shop that had integrity and offered only services that were needed as cost has always been a factor since I was female and taken advantage of previously by unscrupulous service shops.”
I own a Ford 2004 F350 Diesel and have had terrible experiences with other shops. After my first experience with Tony and Car Craft, I know I’ve found the right shop. I get better mileage now which relates to less wear on my vehicle thanks to Car Craft.
Norm at the front desk provides unreal service each and every time. Owner Tony is very professional and friendly. Car Craft is definitely doing their best to become the neighbourhood garage. Great staff, and great work.
Norm Grube is knowledgeable & trustworthy.
Professional, courteous, competent and friendly
I got a recommendation from the local Napa parts dealer for Car Craft to help me with my check engine light coming on while I was visiting my parents in Kelowna from Puyallup, Washington. I was leaving to go home the next morning over the Coquihalla Pass Highway. It was after 3 pm when I pulled in. They took great care of me and had the problem diagnosed and the light turned off and I was on my way just after 4 pm. Fantastic people with a great attitude to help you.Hats off to these folks it’s not about the money to them it’s all about taking care of you.
Norm has been very professional.

Fast, friendly service. I did not feel bamboozled by these guys – they explained what I needed to have done and were great about telling me the work that was not necessary. I really appreciated that. I think women can rest assured that they are not getting ripped off when the bring their cars in on their own. That is a real concern for a lot of us.
I found the staff to be friendly, professional and extremely competent. I would have no hesitation to recommend them to others. I will be using their services again in the future.
Rob, Norm, Tony and their crew are as professional and trustworthy as I have seen in any profession. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to look after my vehicles. Both my wife and I take our personal and work vehicles to CarCraft. We are very grateful for their outstanding service.
Well done and great service
Friendly staff and very knowledgeable
