Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is typically a liquid or gas substance used to regulate the temperature of your engine. Liquid coolants are typically half water and half ethylene glycol. Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to lower the chilly point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is extremely hard.
