This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Prestone. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have written in the past about Big Red, my 2001 Chevrolet Suburban and my quest to hit 250,000 miles. Currently sitting at 196,338 miles, I am fast approaching my next major milestone. There is nothing more important in getting the most out of your vehicle than proper preventative maintenance with quality automotive products. Now, I’m under no illusions. As much as I like to tell my friends that Big Red is invincible, and I tell them a lot, I know that since we’re knocking on the door of 200,000 miles, she’s getting tired. And the reality is that no matter how diligent you are with your preventative maintenance; your engine is slowly wearing out.
One of the most common issue with older engines is coolant leaks. These can occur in the radiator, at the head gasket or in the engine block itself. Previously this would have required an expensive engine rebuild or radiator replacement.
Fortunately, our friends at Prestone have developed their Triple Seal Protection™ (3 kinds: Radiator, Head Gasket, Engine Block) made with DuPont™ Kevlar® resin that stops engine leaks fast. Best of all they don’t block or corrode your cooling system as other products might.
Each Triple Seal Protection™ product includes effervescent beads quickly break down and head right to the source of the leak. The DuPont™ Kevlar® resin forms a fibrous web that binds to metals and an acrylic polymer hardens and secures the seal and makes it permanent.
I should also mention another Prestone product that I am a big fan of. Big Red and I spend a lot of time bouncing around out in the wild and there is nothing worse than a windshield covered in smashed bugs. To make it worse, when you turn on your windshield washer you wind up with disgusting bug smears all across your windshield. Prestone to the rescue once again with their Prestone Bug Wash® Windshield Washer Fluid. Not only does it remove up to 99.99% of bugs, it’s also effective on road grime, bird droppings, and tree sap.
If you love your older vehicle as much as I do, I’m sure you maintain it with loving care. Prestone now provides us with an easy way to stop engine leaks and possibly prevent a very expensive trip to a repair shop.
