Chrysler 200 Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is commonly 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 reduce the chilly point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is immensely meaningful. Interestingly enough, this isn't the initial time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the considerable ingredient in the illustrious 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 instinctive coolant.

You can purchase ready-made mixtures of coolant that already have water further, or you can purchase full-strength antifreeze which needs to be diluted with distilled water before being further to the engine system.
