A new video explains the individual steps for flushing the cooling system, as a dirty cooling system and airlocks reduce cooling capacity and can lead to serious consequences such as pre-damage to the water pump mechanical seal. The cooling system should therefore be properly flushed on a regular basis – when the water pump is replaced at the very latest. In addition, drivers only benefit from the guarantee for MEYLE water pumps if the cooling system is flushed before installation. But regular flushing also helps to ensure a longer service life for the product.
In the new video tutorial, the Hamburg-based manufacturer explains how to flush the engine’s cooling system in five easy steps. The engine should be cooled down and the coolant drained before cleaning the radiator, engine block and, if possible, the heat exchanger, one after the other. This removes the deposits and particles from the system that can otherwise form over the years and impede system function over the long term. In the final step, the cooling system is filled with new coolant and ventilated, making the system fully functional again.
