Hyundai recommend a flush every 2 years,i personally find that if i run my car with a 50/50 mix,then i only flush at 4 years.....but i do check the specific gravity every year....and obviously look for oil in system as a service item.
As a matter of interest VW flush is every 4 years......

Radiator flush

Where are you located sherdibelle, is the cost labor and parts. See if you can find a radiator shop that will boil out your radiator. I quickly checked and a after market radiator cost $150.00-$200.00 so the place you went to is charging $800.00 labor or is this at a dealership. what is the labor rate.

When I drive my dodge intrepid 2003 at a speed of 70 miles per hour the engine overheats. What type of maintenance or repair is needed?

try flushing the radiator and engine block, make sure the radiator is free from dirt etc.check oil and water levels after flushing, check engine oil see if its clean( ie not a thick dirty black color)if it is dirty you could also clean that as well with flushing oil then refill with new ,when filling radiator add the recomended amount of antifreeze as this also helps to run cooler.
Hope this helps the problem.

My Mitsubishi Galant ES 2005 has completed 95000 kms. What necessary service and maintenance are required now...??

Timing belt for sure if old. I'd change all belts. An engine flush and radiator flush would be a good idea. If you've never had a tune up you might do so. Change plugs and wires yourself. A transmission service if you haven't had one in recent years.

I have a radiator leak is the only remedy an new one? Is it part of maintenance?

The best fix is a new radiator. The newer radiators that have plastic tanks just don't last as long as the copper ones of years ago. Most radiator shops won't fix plastic and aluminum radiators. and if they do it will cost about the same to fix as a new one will.

My car is running hot do u think i need to change the motor?

buy a radiator flush kit, some prestone flush additive, and even maybe a new thermostat, and a simple haynes manual for your auto. The manual will tell you where and how to change the thermostat, and how to drain the radiator, and how much radiator fluid you will need. The flush kit will instruct you where to put the flush fitting.
Remove the thermo, flush the motor, install new thermo and gasket. Add radiator fluid, done. This should solve your over heating probs. Don't let it over heat! You can cause major probs then.

You could always take it to a shop and pay the $200 to do it for you. My way would cost you less than $50.

please click yes if this helps. thanks

Many older cars (yours is 10 years old ) just needs the raditor changed. Flush the heater and the motor good as you'll stopp the new raditor. The owers manual says flush every year some owners never do it !

Maintenance Toyota Solara 2000

I have kept my cars running for a long time (250k+) by changing fluids as u are doing, and fixing things right away, not letting them develop into bigger problems, so u are destined to have your car for a long time! Many of the maintenance items u list are typically NEVER done by anyone, but they should be. Here's what I recommend from many years of maintaining my cars:
ps flush-50k or 5 yrs
brake fluid flush- every time u have brakes replaced.
Rad.drain, flush, fill -new coolant is said to be good for life of car, I would flush and refill 50/50 coolant water mix every 4 years.
Fuel Injection- I'll get flak over this, but I never do anything to the system, just change your fuel filter every 2 years, or 20k
Trans Flush-don't have it done if they '**** out' the fluid from the dipstick tube. I consider that method a waste. Have the pan removed to drain it, and replace the trans filter if equipped w/ one (u can't change the filter if u **** the fluid out of the dipstick.) Also, some vehicles have a magnet on the bottom of the trans. pan, which collects fine shavings from normal wear and tear (and pieces of metal from a trans. about to go bad). U need to drop the pan to clean this crud off the magnet.
oil and filter (good quality filter-cheap junky ones are much lighter than a quality one) every 3k or twice a year whichever comes 1st
I'll add: air filter- every 20k or once a year
check tire air pressure once a month, rotate tires for even wear (every 5k miles) Can I buy your well maintained car when u r ready to sell it?
