Engine Coolant Change Service

Engine coolant is a liquid mixture of water and antifreeze that circulates through the engine to prevent corrosion, lubricate engine parts and prevent the engine from overheating. It's recommended that engine coolant is replaced every 30,000 miles and checked regularly.

At Stoneacre we check engine coolant levels and boiling point as part of our Gold and Platinum services, and offer a standalone engine coolant change service if we think your coolant should be replaced. As part of this service we'll drain all the old coolant from your engine and refill the reservoir with fresh coolant.

Our engine coolant change service is always carried out under guidance from your car's manufacturer. This guarantees that we replace your coolant with a recommended product that will not affect the performance, safety or environmental standards of your car.

  • What is engine coolant?

    Engine coolant is a liquid mixture of water and antifreeze that reduces the freezing point and increases the boiling point of fluids circulating in a car's engine. It helps protect the engine in severe weather conditions, meaning your car is less susceptible to breakdown in extreme temperatures.

    Coolant also acts as a lubricant for essential engine parts, like the coolant pump, water pump, radiator and thermostat, which all work to help regulate the temperature of the engine. With the correct mixture, coolant will help increase the boiling point of fluids to 129 degrees as well as low the freezing point to -37 degrees.

  • How often should you change engine coolant?

    Coolant is more than often not included in an annual service or covered in a manufacturer's service, but it should still be checked and replaced regularly. We recommend you check your engine coolant annually and replace it every 2 years, unless it needs to be replaced sooner. A Stoneacre Service tests and measures the strength of your engine coolant and the vehicle technician servicing your car may recommend an engine coolant change at an additional cost.

    Over time contaminants can build up in the coolant that can cause the liquid to acidify and lose its anti-corrosive properties. Damaged or old coolant can lead to the increased corrosion of engine parts and will decrease the boiling point of engine fluids that can help cause overheating.
