2018 Dodge Challenger Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is continually a liquid or gas substance used to regulate the temperature of your engine. Liquid coolants are frequently half water and half ethylene glycol. Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to reduce the freezing point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is extremely ordinary. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the leading ingredient in the favorite 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 competent coolant.

You can pay cash for ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water increased, or you can pay cash for full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being increased 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 advisors handle your coolant flush.

It is critical 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.

Interestingly enough, up until the mid-1990s there was basically only a single type of coolant. It was a green formula coolant that contained corrosion inhibitors that only lasted between 24,000 - 36,000 miles or between two to three years. This type of coolant is not recommended for newer vehicles which come equipped with a longer-lasting coolant.

Newer coolants use an Organic Acid Technology (OAT) and last up to twice as long as older coolant. In some cases these long-life coolants can last over 5 years or 100,000 miles.
