2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is regularly a liquid or gas substance used to regulate the temperature of your engine. Liquid coolants are ordinarily half water and half ethylene glycol. Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to lower the cool point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is highly crucial. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the basic ingredient in the classical 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 comfortable coolant.

You can purchase ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water extra, or you can purchase full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being extra 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 technicians and service mentors handle your coolant flush.
