Toyota Camry Coolant

Water is used to transfer heat while ethylene glycol is used to decrease the brisk point of the liquid. In colder climates, this is extremely main. Interestingly enough, this isn't the earliest time you've heard of ethylene glycol as it is the central ingredient in the traditional 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 correct coolant.
