It may be tempting to overlook cooling system maintenance or recycle coolant to reduce disposal costs. But today’s engine operating temperatures are higher, and radiators and cooling system capacities are smaller - placing greater demands on your coolant. In fact, about 50% of all engine downtime can be attributed to cooling system problems.

That’s why it’s critical to get a coolant test every time you change your oil. Perkins fluid sampling determines whether your coolant has the right chemical balance for maximum system protection and cooling efficiency. It’s also helpful for documenting routine maintenance.
