Keeping Cool: The importance of Coolant (Antifreeze)

Just as oil is vital to your engine, coolant plays an important role in keeping your vehicle running at optimal performance. What is coolant and what does it do?

Coolant, also called antifreeze consists of ethylene glycol. When ethylene glycol mixes with water, it helps to lower the freezing point as well as increase the boiling point. Your engine is under constant and significant heat due to combustion. Without coolant your engine would get extremely hot, causing it to overheat which can cause damage. In addition to overheating, without proper coolant, it would cause rapid deterioration of your engine parts. Another important benefit of coolant is that it has special additives to prevent the metal parts from corroding. Adding coolant rather than only water helps to keep your fluid from freezing in frigid weather.
