2013 Dodge Charger Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is consistently a liquid or gas substance used to regulate the temperature of your engine. Liquid coolants are usually half water and half ethylene glycol. Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to lower the quick point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is extremely exciting. Interestingly enough, this isn't the original time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the main ingredient in the prominent term "antifreeze". Keep in mind, you never want to pour antifreeze or water by themselves into your engine system. They need to be combined to create the apt coolant.

You can purchase ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water added, or you can purchase full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being added to the engine system. Give the experts at Courtesy Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram a call at 8136948784 or schedule service online and let one of our mechanics and service consultants handle your coolant flush.

It is basic to do your research if you plan to buy, flush, or replace the coolant in your vehicle. Many models will not be compatible even with "universal" coolants or antifreeze.
