2012 Toyota Corolla Coolant

Coolant, as it relates to vehicles, is typically 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 chilly point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is remarkably troublesome. Interestingly enough, this isn't the authentic time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the central ingredient in the famous 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 humane coolant.

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