    As with any equipment, there is great wisdom in buying locally. Sometimes the only option is to buy a new one when it comes time for equipment repairs, if there is no service center nearby. However, these flush machines are not too complex and I’ve had good service from my Viper AF2350. Ocassionally the plastic quick connects need to be replaced, and if I get into a real nasty system, the check valve will hang-up, but I can get the parts direct from the factory, shipped overnight if needed.

    Phil,

    Call Steve Betts from Premaco Michigan. Ask him for a demo of their

    coolant flush machine at your location. They sell BG Products and if

    you use their chemicals I believe they loan you the machine at no

    charge. I have used both their coolant flush and trans fluid

    exchanger machines for eight years now with great satisfaction. The

    coolant flush machine taps into the upper radiator hose and flushes

    the system by forcing the t-stat open and reverse flushes the

    cooling system. There are some cars that you just can’t power flush

    due to access, but I think this is one of the best machines out

    there. Premaco’s office # is 770-425-1844
