View Full Version : Coolant flush needed?

Just wondering how often everyone flushes their coolant? I have an 02 GAGT coupe with 54k miles.. I looked in the resovoir tank, and there are tiny little chunks of crap in the coolant. I'm debating whether or not to flush it now, or wait until I get the LIM leak and then have it replaced. What do you all suggest? How long should the coolant last?

Thanks,
Jeff

I've done it about every two years, powerflush w/ that prestone kit. car always ran cooler afterwards.

If you're running dex-cool technically you don't have to do anything for 100k miles. But most of us don't trust dex-cool so if you're gonna flush and fill with the green stuff follow the manufacturer recommendations.

^^^100k or 5years

I should do a flush in my 01. It still has the factory coolant in it at 71k. It still looks new, but I know that does not mean anything.
