2007 Taurus Coolant Flush
54,000 Miles. I've had it since 50K. I don't know if it's been flushed before.
Car Drives fine. No Coolant leaks. No overheating problems. Coolant looks, okay, from what I can see(i.e i've seen the rusty Taurus coolant video on youtube, mine does NOT look like that.)
Dealer wants $100 for the coolant flush.
1) What concerns should I have about the procedure the dealer uses? What kind of questions should I ask?
2) Assuming this is the 1st flush for the vehicle, should the thermostat be replaced?
I was from the mindset, if it ain't broke don't fix it, until my old ford escort gave up on me. Now I want to do as much preventative maintenance as possible. But with something as important as the coolant, i wanted to get your guys opinions, I really value it. Thanks.
